Anyone else paying the slightest attention to this?

This is your government; or rather, the government under Janet Reno. A federal judge had said that the boy could stay until the legal issues were resolved, but the administration at the time wasn't going to risk another Muriel-style boatlift for the sake of one six-year-old's shot at freedom.

The fascists put up one hundred and fifty one agents to pluck the kid from his relatives and return him to the worker's paradise. One hundred and fifty one agents.

The agents fully admit gassing passive bystanders, but claim the bystanders were gassed from fifteen to twenty feet away. The victims (the ones that weren't turned over to communist Cuba, that is) claim that they were gassed from two feet away. Does it make a fucking shred of difference? One hundred and fifty one agents gassed unarmed citizens of the United States to kidnap a child that a Federal judge had said could stay.

Ayup. If Ashcroft had done this, people would be, um, upset. Reno did it, so, of course, it's good and just.

Back to sleep, nothing of interest here.

Nope, no attention here. But only b/c I've been really busy and haven't had time to watch the news or get online.

It's hard to find, anyway. The only outlet covering it seems to be AP. They only care because one of their photographers (outside, not the one in the bedroom) got the crap beat out of him by the forces of truth and justice.

what are these words you speak of, this "truth" and "justice"? what do they mean?

You won't find out from studying the Clinton administration.

Justice is 76% of eligible Iraqis participating in open electons for the first time ever.

Certain males were able to vote during the 'Republican' period of Iraqi history: 1932 - 1963.

Subsequent elections had a single name on the ballot with a yes/no. One's vote was cast in front of Ba'athist officials.

Fox is saying 60%. About the same as the US turnout in '04.
