Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall: "Imagine that. Last night we told you about Joe Allbaugh, President Bush's longtime right-hand-man who just opened a company to get into the Iraq contract business. And last week we told you about how Undersecretary of Defense Doug Feith's old law firm, Feith & Zell, has now opened a new division specializing in hooking up clients with the sweetest deals in Iraq.

Bush covers up climate research
The email, dated 3 June 2002, reveals how White House officials wanted the CEI's help to play down the impact of a report last summer by the government's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in which the US admitted for the first time that humans are contributing to global warming. 'Thanks for calling and asking for our help,' Ebell tells Cooney.
The email discusses possible tactics for playing down the report and getting rid of EPA officials, including its then head, Christine Whitman. 'It seems to me that the folks at the EPA are the obvious fall guys and we would only hope that the fall guy (or gal) should be as high up as possible,' Ebell wrote in the email. 'Perhaps tomorrow we will call for Whitman to be fired,' he added.
The CEI is suing another government climate research body that produced evidence for global warming. The revelation of the email's contents has prompted demands for an investigation to see if the White House and CEI are co-ordinating the legal attack.

Republicans are screaming at the top of their lungs saying Ted Kennedy is everything from a traitor to mean.Yet According to the Washington Post : "White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan said yesterday that Kennedy's alleged 'bribes' are actually nothing but standard foreign assistance. 'As any member of Congress knows or should know, foreign assistance to friends and allies has been a staple of America's international policy for decades,' she said. 'Reducing the discourse to this level is a real disservice to the American people.'"
Which sounds like theyre saying he was exactly Correct. Half the bush requested money is for bribes.
