Report: Iraq intelligence ‘dead wrong’

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

Bush says fundamental changes needed in spy agencies
Thursday, March 31, 2005 Posted: 12:43 PM EST (1743 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The U.S. intelligence community was “simply wrong” in its assessments of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction capabilities before the U.S. invasion, according to a panel created to study those failures and recommend corrections to prevent them in the future.

“We conclude that the intelligence community was dead wrong in almost all of its prewar judgments about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction,” said a letter from the commission to President Bush. “This was a major intelligence failure.”

The panel — called the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction — formally presents its report to Bush on Thursday morning.

An October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate warned that Iraq was pursuing weapons of mass destruction, had reconstituted its nuclear weapon program and had biological and chemical weapons.

The Bush administration used those conclusions as part of its argument for the March 2003 invasion of Iraq.

But the Iraq Survey Group — set up to look for weapons of mass destruction or evidence of them in the country — issued a final report saying it saw no weapons or no evidence that Iraq was trying to reconstitute them.

The commission’s report said the principal cause of the intelligence failures was the intelligence community’s “inability to collect good information about Iraq’s WMD programs, serious errors in analyzing what information it could gather and a failure to make clear just how much of its analysis was based on assumptions rather than good evidence.”

“The single most prominent a recurring theme” of its recommendations is “stronger and more centralized management of the intelligence community, and, in general, the creation of a genuinely integrated community, instead of a loose confederation of independent agencies.”

Bush appointed the nine-member commission led by Laurence Silberman, a senior federal appellate court judge who also served in the Nixon and Ford administrations, and former Sen. and Virginia Gov. Chuck Robb, a Democrat.

Female Entertainers (Strippers!) Pt. 2

Wednesday, March 30th, 2005

Forget mail-order brides, find a stripper, you won’t have to pay for shipping.
By Strawberry

Initially I thought following the trail of sparkling glitter and lingering perfume across the USA, to bring you the hottest strippers in the states, was going to be a HUGE task. But the following past two weeks since my initial article on this topic, I have been inundated with emails. It seems there are plenty of you who want your favorite ‘hot’ spots to be featured. So, following your suggestions I sent some guys and girls out to find the best among your favorites. This week we will take you to Alaska where the girls are hot enough to melt snow and leave you feeling like you’re in Texas where the cowgirls ride you like a bull all the way down to Florida where the girls will keep you cool. Follow us as we take you on a journey to the girls that will make you cream.

Cum warm my buns
While living out in the cold of Anchorage Alaska, most take the time to warm up with the sexy eskimo bunnies at The Great Alaskan Bush Company. Where there are currently over 100 good looking dancers employed and ready to heat you up. With a fully stock bar offering inexpensive drinks and a variety of girls for every taste bud makes this the hottest strip club with a guarantee that you’ll have a good time and a hard on. So, take off that windbreaker, kick up those snow boots, grab a drink and enjoy the tunes, the lighting effects and the girls at The Great Alaskan Bush Company.

Time to saddle up

Texas is known as the land of the cowboys, but as we found out it’s the cowgirls that know how to keep you coming back for more. So, we went to the heart of Austi and fell head over heals with the girls at Joy of Austin. With over 300 beautiful girls there is absolute certainty that you will find what you’re looking for. They swing on the poll, grind on your lap and play with their toys just for your enjoyment. These dancers know how to please, put a smile on your face and a chubby in your pants. Joy of Austin also offers a four star lunch and dinner menu, daily meal specials, drink specials and above all a comfortable atmosphere and a clean lounge. So, yall come back now, ya hear?

Hotter than a flame
Our last stop this week takes us to Daytona, Florida where the weather will leave you sweating and so will the 50 dancers at Lollipops. This place has a magnificent set up with 3 show bars, rock music, full bar, excellent prices and show stopping action. Is one on one not enough for you? Don’t worry about it. Maybe you need two or three or four dancers playing with one another just for you ON you. This place is unexplainable and a definite favorite of mine. Latinas are a speciality.I urge you to go there the next time that you’re in Florida. There is no excuse good enough for you not to!!!!

American as apple pie, but not nearly so filling
We’ve already packed our bags so come back next week and hit the road with us to see if your all time favorite strip clubs made their way to the Strawberry Patch. Website Suggestion of the Week: Men’s Club Guide

‘It can no longer be deinied that ‘human influences” is the culprit in a damming assessment of the global health of our world. Its been reported around the nations of the world after the release of a commissioned UN report the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment program that we can no longer take it for granted that the earth will be sustainable in the very foreseeable future but will our nations policy makers have the will to make a significant attempt to alter the course of our doomed destiny.
Particularly when the United Nations is itself embarking on questionable enviromental strategys with its (E)mission creep
And don’t forget that worlds top polluter, the United States and Australia have turned its back on the 1997 Kyoto agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions 5.2 percent by 2012 on the grounds that it would be too costly .
Perhaps the only solution is affected peoples such as the Inuits of Alaska to take offending countries like the US to court for Human Rights Violations .If money is the cause of the richest nations reluctance to implement sustainable policys then a myriad of lawsuits just may make it viable for them.
It seems a human rights issues when a nation of people can no carry on their traditional culture and way of life because Global warming has significamtly changed their enviroment.
