The Downing Street Memo, leaked to the press last May, proved that Bush's stated reasons for war were actually pretexts. The author of the memo -- which should have caused Bush much more trouble than it actually did -- was one Matthew John Rycroft, heretofore identifed as a "foreign policy aide" to Blair.Not quite. He's actually an MI6 agent. (Go here and scroll down.) Apparently, Rycroft -- Matthew Rycroft -- has been stationed in Geneva, Paris, Washington and Sarajevo. 15.Oct.2005 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/
Let's not make too much of the recent poll. The question was asked with a qualifier: If Bush lied to start a war, then should he be impeached?

But for many, rationalization springs eternal. 15.Oct.2005 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/

11.Dec.2004 It gets curioser and curioser. In his affidavit, Curtis pointed another finger at a fellow named Mike Cohen, allegedly present at meetings in which the vote-stealing program was discussed. Cohen's name once "infected" documents available on the Yang website -- but that "infection" has been healed (praise Jesus) by some quick re-writing. The original, Cohen-infested version of one such document can be found here.(By the way, much of the Curtis info is cribbed from Brad Friedman, who assures me that he doesn't mind. Even his supplemental site is sometimes hard to reach these days.)URL: https://cannonfire.blogspot.com/
11.Dec.2004 Now we have a firm accused of corrupt practice resorting to the same tactic. Clint Curtis pointed the finger at Florida's Yang Enterprises, which, he claims, tasked him to cobble together prototype vote-theft software. The company has responded with this message on its website:Recently there have been several accusations against this corporation by Clinton Eugene Curtis. All of the allegations are 100% FALSE!! An official statement will be forthcoming. Thank you for your concern and God Bless America. URL: https://cannonfire.blogspot.com/
11.Dec.2004 Felons can't vote -- but they can count votes . Many of you have seen this fine piece posted on Buzzflash. The article outlines many of the compelling reasons to mistrust the companies charged with keeping our vote safe.

Neither does the author discuss the anti-democratic tendencies of the Ahmanson fmaily, which owns ESS.However, she does drop a name that has never received due mention in this column: John Dean, Diebold vice-president, convicted of planting back doors in his software.

29.Jun.2005 After being graduated from MIT at the age of 19, the brilliant young Generoso Pope joined the CIA circa 1950, operating (by his own later admission) as a specialist in psychological warfare. This period marked the beginning of the CIA's efforts to alter the perception and behavior of groups and individuals -- Projects Artichoke, Bluebird, MKULTRA and so forth. This was also the period when the CIA funded much American sociological research, as documented in Christopher Simpson's invaluable study, Science of Coercion: Communication Research and Psychological Warfare 1945-1960. The Company's goal was to develop ways to alter the political and social beliefs of large populations. URL: https://cannonfire.blogspot.com/
