  1. What are the odds that Cheney's "One Percent Doctrine" was actually Libby's "One Percent Doctrine"? As Maidhc Ó Cathail wrote:

    An advisory board member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), Cheney has long-standing ties with the Israel Lobby. Indeed, his staff was “hand-picked” by Paul Wolfowitz protégé Lewis Libby. Described as “almost part of Cheney’s brain” by Bob Woodward, Libby selected Cheney’s staff from neoconservative think tanks such as the American Enterprise Institute, the Hudson Institute and WINEP.

    It was these pro-Israel “scholars” not oil industry lobbyists who wrote the war propaganda for the executive branch. As Robert Dreyfuss points out in his American Prospect article on Cheney’s office, “Vice Squad,” Libby and Hannah produced “the most inflammatory and inaccurate speeches delivered by Cheney and Bush.”

  3. In Viet Nam, Genl. Westmoreland opined that life is cheap in Asia. Lots of Americans feel the same way about Arab life.

  4. I've a strong suspicion that most of you anti-zionist nitwits don't give a damn about Arabs or anything but your anti-Jewish obssession. You belong on alt.conspiracy.
