Remember not to far back, I was rambling on about Saddam Hussein being captured. A lot of you happened to note that this occurred right after the revelations about Haliburton overcharging the goverment. Then, after the victorious capture of Saddam Hussein, the "terror alert" for the US goes up a notch to orange. In the meantime, news goes out that Air France has canceled some of its flight due to the request of US officials about possible Al Queda pilots at the controls or "questionable" Tunisian nationals planning to board (depending on what time or where you read about this "developing" story). What didn't seen to make the headlines were some recently declassified documents about Rumsfield's visit to Iraq in '84 where he was told to make friendly overtures to Saddam even though it was already widely known that Saddam had and used chemical weapons.
Now my favorite thing is that on so many pro-Bushy sites and also in response to my own posting, people were waxing ecstatic about how Germany and France should be quaking in their boots once Saddam starts to talk. After the revelations revealed in the declassified documents, those statements become even more ludicrous. We have in our own hands our own underhanded dealings with Saddam... and yet some of us try to still take pop shots at France and Germany. I have news for you folks, most modern goverments are corrupt.
Of course, this didn't seem to make too many headlines today. However, the fact that possible attacks using Air France planes that look to have been personally approved by Osama himself (remember him? He's the guy who started all this crap in the world back on 9/11. I can understand why you may have forgotten him with all the Iraq stuff... but hey.. count on me to remind you what is important *wink*).
