Meet the New Marlboro Man … Will the White House be Smoke Free? … “There are times where I’ve fallen off the wagon” Says Barack Obama


So will the White House continue to be a smoke free environment  or will President-elect Obama_Mens HealthBarack Obama fall off the wagon there to when confronted with real stress? In an interview on Meet the Press, Barack Obama admitted “that there are times where I have fallen off the wagon.” Seriously, what does Obama mean “under the circumstances”? Does the “Chosen One” actually think that running for President is more stressful than being the President?

Obama pledges not to smoke in the White House, one would think that “The One” would quit as an example to all … that would be change we could believe in.

Isn’t this priceless. It is rather interesting that the one who will shape health care reform in the United States is a smoker and one of the greater contributors to health care escalating costs. As many previous articles have been published, there is a high cost to smoking, HERE and HERE.

Noting that the White House was a no-smoking zone, Tom Brokaw asked the president-elect during a televised interview on Sunday, “Have you stopped smoking?”

“I have,” Obama replied, smiling broadly. “What I said was that there are times where I have fallen off the wagon.”

“Wait a minute,” Brokaw interjected, “that means you haven’t stopped.”

“I’ve done a terrific job, under the circumstances, of making myself much healthier and I think that you will not see any violations of these rules in the White House,” he replied on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” on NBC.


Barack Obama, the new Marlboro Man

Isn’t this interesting because the media never showed Obama puffing on a butt on the campaign trail. Just another example of media bias as all the MSM did was portray Obama jogging, playing basketball and being healthy while they constantly brought up John McCain’s health issues with cancer.

Obama told the magazine Men’s Health in an interview for its November issue that he wished he had more time for staying fit and that he still occasionally smoked a cigarette.

Obama said in that interview that he had bummed a cigarette a couple of times during the campaign. “But I figure, seeing as I’m running for president, I need to cut myself a little slack,” he said.

      This is about his friend Rev. Wright..calling women dumb broads..and then went on to make this comment about hatred..
      “The hatred of the media and the haters in politics may have caused him to distance himself from us, but the love of Christ will never allow me to distance myself from him,” Wright said of Obama. “I can no more disown him than I can disown any other child of mine who makes [a] bad decision. He made a bad decision, but he’s still my child.” also in attendance…Also at Trinity on Sunday was the Rev. Michael Pfleger, whom Wright called “my main man.” Rev. Wright is a nut case..

      per Greta..

      December 8, 2008
      BY MAUREEN O’DONNELL Staff Reporter
      President-elect Barack Obama made a “bad decision” by distancing himself from the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his church, Wright said Sunday — but that’s OK.

      “He’s still my child,” Wright said in a sermon in which he expressed pride in Obama’s longtime association with Trinity United Church of Christ.

      His talk was spiced with his trademark blend of history lesson, mimicry, singing, and — depending on your point of view — insults, or telling it like it is. One object of contempt seemed to be Elisabeth Hasselbeck of ABC’s “The View,” whom — while not saying her name — Wright twice referred to as a “broad,” including once as “that dumb broad.” Hasselbeck has criticized Wright on “The View.”

      Wright, speaking at Trinity on its 47th anniversary, said he was proud of “the only church that produced the first and only African-American president in the 211-year history of the United States. No other church can say that.”

      “The hatred of the media and the haters in politics may have caused him to distance himself from us, but the love of Christ will never allow me to distance myself from him,” Wright said of Obama. “I can no more disown him than I can disown any other child of mine who makes [a] bad decision. He made a bad decision, but he’s still my child.”

      Wright also compared the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib Prison to the abuses of old colonial powers. “What we doing with a base in Cuba?” he asked. “We just take stuff.”

      He retired from Trinity this year but was invited back to speak Sunday. Wright and his sermons were a lightning rod in the presidential race, particularly one in which he said “God damn America.” Obama subsequently cut ties with Wright and the church where he was married and where his children were baptized.

      Also at Trinity on Sunday was the Rev. Michael Pfleger, whom Wright called “my main man.” Pfleger drew heat with criticism of then-candidate Hillary Clinton last spring.

      no, we won’t see any smoking in the white house because the obama media machine will not show it.
      there probably be plenty of smoking outside or in the toilet.

    3. Paul Breiveld on December 8th, 2008 12:50 pm

      So… He’s even more Black from the inside!

    4. Von Kitty Kat on December 8th, 2008 12:55 pm

      Oh so what ? How trivial is this ! !
      There is a recession and this is the best you can do ? Give it up, he is the president elect soon to be the president and no one cares about that he might have a smoke. Excpet you it seems.

    5. Miss-Underestimated on December 8th, 2008 1:23 pm

      White house is government property. No smoking on goverment propery right? Isn’t that the federal law?

    6. Maggie on December 8th, 2008 1:52 pm

      He probably don’t enhale either…

      Liberals are starting to ..

      Liberals are growing increasingly nervous – and some just flat-out angry – that President-elect Barack Obama seems to be stiffing them on Cabinet jobs and policy choices.

      Obama has reversed pledges to immediately repeal tax cuts for the wealthy and take on Big Oil. He’s hedged his call for a quick drawdown in Iraq. And he’s stocking his White House with anything but stalwarts of the left.

      Now some are shedding a reluctance to puncture the liberal euphoria at being rid of President George W. Bush to say, in effect, that the new boss looks like the old boss.

      “He has confirmed what our suspicions were by surrounding himself with a centrist to right cabinet. But we do hope that before it’s all over we can get at least one authentic progressive appointment,” said Tim Carpenter, national director of the Progressive Democrats of America.

      OpenLeft blogger Chris Bowers went so far as to issue this plaintive plea: “Isn’t there ever a point when we can get an actual Democratic administration?”

      Even supporters make clear they’re on the lookout for backsliding. “There’s a concern that he keep his basic promises and people are going to watch him,” said Roger Hickey, a co-founder of Campaign for America’s Future.

      Obama insists he hasn’t abandoned the goals that made him feel to some like a liberal savior. But the left’s bill of particulars against Obama is long, and growing.

      Obama drew rousing applause at campaign events when he vowed to tax the windfall profits of oil companies. As president-elect, Obama says he won’t enact the tax.

    7. txchic on December 8th, 2008 1:56 pm

      i’m just seeing the irony in all obama’s statements about “preventive health care”. guess he’s just dogging those who have put on a few pounds.

      if it weren’t for that i really don’t care if he smokes & would prefer the media NOT show a role model indulging in destructive behavior.

    8. Michelle on December 8th, 2008 2:36 pm

      See how the libs think that the laws do not pertain to Obama and he hasn’t even taken oath yet….

    9. Rusty Bridges on December 8th, 2008 3:33 pm

      #4, it goes to show his charactor. He cannot commit to quitting, what is he afraid to offend the “cool” crowd.

      He can’t even answer a simple question.”and I think that you will not see any violations of these rules in the White House,” Yes or freakin’ no, Mr. Barack “Always leave yourself an out” Obama.

      you look like a scumbag with that cigarette hanging out of your mouth Mr. Presumed President Elct Obama.

    10. michelle on December 8th, 2008 6:02 pm

      He says one thing to get elected and now he’s saying something else. hmmmm didn’t see that one coming did you Obama kool-aid drinkers? lol

      He’s just getting started…..

    11. caesu on December 8th, 2008 6:19 pm

      no WTF tag this time?
      ok, Bizarre tag. :)

      i am a little disappointed.
      i hope the writers are not running out of fake outrage.
      because i’ve gotten used to getting my daily dose of comic relief out of it.

    12. Just Bearly on December 8th, 2008 8:00 pm

      An editorial story i read on Yahoo today, Washington Post I think, is it looks like OBama may not be the liberal he postured himself as to get votes. Hes surrounding himself with moderates in key positions. I’m sure he knows exactly what he is doing to stay in office for 8 years to not let the Republicrats win it back again in 4.

    13. Richard on December 8th, 2008 11:13 pm

      Once Obama put himself on the left, to win votes, he then had to carry out the classic political maneuver of getting back closer to the center.

      The re-election campaign for 2012 is already underway.

    14. Richard on December 8th, 2008 11:14 pm

      What would be really interesting is to find out whether Obama has someone buy cigarettes for him at military bases. There, I believe, there are no federal or state taxes on cigarettes … saving purchasers quite a bundle.

      Of course, that would be hypocritical, so we know it would never happen.

    15. Scarrlett on December 9th, 2008 6:17 am

      The problem I have VON Kitty Kat is the fact that he lies about it. If he will lie or as some of you put it [mis-leads} us on this small matter just think what he will lie about in the matter of the recession??? Hmmmmmmmmmm

    16. Michelle on December 9th, 2008 8:45 am


      Yup…He’s a liar and thinks that the Constitution does not pertain to him or any laws frankly. Get ready to here this kind of stuff for the next 4 years. We are not letting up. You guys didn’t cut Bush any slack so Barry gets none from us.

    17. yoyo muffintop on December 9th, 2008 9:54 am

      How your tinfoil tiara fitting today #16?
      hahaha…freak. Lol.

      #16: Please give point by point what President-elect Obama has personally done that shows the Constitution does not pertain to him or any laws.
      Point by point.

    18. super dave on December 9th, 2008 9:55 am

      hawaiian officials CONFIRM that barry obama is NOT an American citizen. therefore he is unfit to serve my country and will not be recognized as president.

    19. yoyo muffintop on December 9th, 2008 10:29 am

      The “Obama is moving center/center right” narrative is far more prevalent on the right than the left. Watch cable talk – it’s a recurring meme, and the reason is two-fold. #1 it’s to take the heat off of the right’s idelogical irrelevance and the massive public distrust of the GOP. The second related reason is to push the notion that “the left” is still marginal and still “wrong.” It’s not and it’s not.
      How many of Obama’s Cabinet members are:
      1. For legal abortion?
      2. For Universal Health Care?
      3. For Alternative Energy?
      4. For Diplomacy with our enemies?
      5. For Funding Education?
      6. Pro Labor?
      7. Pro Regulation of the financial industry?
      8. Against Torture?
      9. For Immigration Reform?
      10. Opposed Prop 8 and endorse civil unions for gay couples?

      Now there might be two people who you can’t answer yes to at least 8 of those categories. Obama’s Cabinet is actually at least half liberal/progressive if not more than half.

      Maggie – President-elect Obam hasn’t actually done anything yet. He doesn’t take office till Jan 20. Who cares if a couple of bloggers aren’t thrilled about Obama’s cabinet picks.
      It’s a creation of the bored and cynical media.

    20. Tesseract on December 9th, 2008 12:01 pm

      I didn’t vote for the guy, but jeeez, cut him SOME slack. At least he smokes the cigarettes. Unlike the cigars that a previous Democrat in the Whitehouse used.

      To some of the previous posters: Oh my, a lying politician. What a surprise!!!

    21. Michelle on December 9th, 2008 12:45 pm

      YoYo #17

      Well for starters:

      1) he does not respect the “Pledge of Allegiance” shall I post a link to the video of him standing with his hands in front of him instead of placing his right hand over his heart?

      2) he wants to change the “National Anthem”

      3) he & Michelle are finally proud to be American’s

      4) he will not clear up the issue of his citizenship by simply presenting the vault copy of his birth certificate which is required to prove he is “a natural born citizen” and make him eligible to run for office of POTUS. Senator McCain presented his.

      5) he palls around with non-terrorists

      6) he sat in Rev. Wrights church for 20 years listening to him preach hate & venom against whites and America

      7) he has done nothing to clean up the corruption in Chicago & Illinois and he thinks he’s going to fix a whole country.

      These are some of his actions that are questionable but I’m sure you don’t care what the man does or says because you worship “the chosen one”

    22. Michelle on December 9th, 2008 12:47 pm

      correction on post #21 item #5 “should say known terrorist”


    23. Michelle on December 9th, 2008 12:48 pm


      Why should we cut him any slack? What has he done for us lately?

    24. yoyo muffintop on December 9th, 2008 2:00 pm

      Michelle, all that’s false.
      #1 – not true
      #2 – not true
      #3 – not true
      #4 – not true
      #5 – what does “pal” mean?
      #6 – how do you know what was “preached” every day he attended
      #7 – not true

      How’s the tinfoil tiara fitting?
      You are either extremely gullible or a right wing nut job.
      I’m leaning towrds both.

      btw – did you forward on that Bill Gates e-mail to 10 people and get that $500?

      The nonsense around Obama birth place is a sad commentary on yourself and the Neocons. The US Supreme Court and the State of Hawaii are in on the “conspiracy” as well, huh?

      Your inability to face reality is quite pathetic.

    25. Michelle on December 9th, 2008 3:27 pm


      Just as I expected when confronted with the truth you can’t see the forest for the trees. I never said anything about a conspiracy. I simple asked why is he not required to present his birth certificate like everyone else? You came up with the conspiracy stuff on your own but again I see you don’t have any desire to learn the truth. So keep living in your little fantasy land if that’s what makes you happy. The state of Hawaii has claimed anything, they have sealed his records. The Supreme only said that we don’t have standing to bring a lawsuit against a Presidential Candidate, they did not say the claims were false but when you get your information from Obama worshiping websites you will not hear the truth.

      Pal means be friend since you seem to be ignorant and don’t know what that means. He was and is friends with Bill Ayers. Oh wait, that’s a lie right? You seem to be the one having difficulty with reality.

      Enjoy your Obama kool-aide

    26. Southern Yankee on December 9th, 2008 5:19 pm

      Yawn……..slow news day?

      I love the personification as the “chosen one”. You make him out to be a character in The Matrix? Does that make McCain “Agent Smith”?

      Try again sheep.

    27. yoyo muffintop on December 9th, 2008 6:22 pm

      He’s released a copy of his birth certificate. Hawaiian officials vouch for Obama’s birth certificate. The crazies such as yourself still aren’t satisfied.
      You and your ilk had plenty of opportunity to peddle this rhubarb during the campaign season and the public didn’t buy it and you lost. Deal with it. Voters didn’t bite on this story and all the other stories trying to make him seem dangerous, foreign and radical.

      They saw through your rabid paranoia, your frantic fearmongering and your brazen distortions.

      Anyone advocating the conspiracy theory, such as yourself, has to admire the incredible foresight that allowed his mother to perceive the need to start the conspiracy when Obama was only a few days old. Lol.

      Some wingnut 9/11 Truther claims Obama’s birth certificate could have been forged, and Obama has an obligation to respond to that? If that triggers an obligation to respond, then Obama will be doing nothing for the next four years but responding to the legions of wingnuts that infest the fringes of our politics….Such as yourself (you believe President-elect Obama is the anti-christ. Just thought I’d mention it in case anybody thought you sane).

      The burden of proof is on the plaintiff that seeks relief, not on the defendant.
      None of the people who have questioned the location of Obama’s birth have proffered any evidence that he was not born in Hawaii. They have submitted only conspiratorial conjecture that it is possible that he was born elsewhere, and demanded that he produce admissible evidence.

      Get ready for the Inauguration.

    28. michelle on December 9th, 2008 7:55 pm

      #27 Oh really? Where is this said birth certificate?

      Voters didn’t hear about this because the MSM chose not to release any information that might make Mr. Obama seem like something other than “the messiah” Of course there is no proof of where he was born, that’s what we are saying…duh….You certainly don’t know what his mother’s intentions were when he was born any more than I do. Conspiracy according to you, yes because you can’t prove he was born in the U.S.A. I NEVER SAID HE WAS THE ANTI-CHRIST, I said he was anti-American (not the same)

      Why has the man had all his documents sealed, medical records, birth certificate, college admission papers all the things the other candidates offered for inspection? Why is he exempt from releasing his information?

      All he has to do is provide the vault copy of his birth certificate (pay the $12.00) and release it to the public. We have a right to know. You wanted John McCain to prove his citizenship, so now Barack Obama needs to prove his.

      Tell me YOYO what do you really know about this man? What experience does he have? How is he going to fix the mess this country is in when he couldn’t even straighten out the crooks in Chicago (his hometown) & Illinois (whom he represented as Senator). Tell me since you are so damn smart? What has he done that is any resemblance to change?

      Please enlighten me YOYO the genius.

      Get ready for 4 years of this clown.

      The federal law was enacted back in 1986. It is up to each agency to designate smoking areas (ususally outside).

      If Obama doesn’t smoke in the White House, there plenty of room on the lawn…lol.

      I’m starting to believe it won’t matter even if he does. It appears that he is untouchable. Plus we would probably never hear about it from the MSM.

    33. yoyo muffintop on December 10th, 2008 11:15 am

      How the tinfoil tiara fitting today Michelle? Do you have any “flair” on it to help summon space signals from the mothership Michelle?

      btw – I guess you were lying when you agreed a vote for obama is a vote for Satan. How convenient.

      “But that doesn’t matter. The faux controversy isn’t going to go away soon. Yes, Obama was born in Hawaii, and yes, he is eligible to be president. But according to several experts in conspiracy theories, and in the psychology of people who believe in conspiracy theories, there’s little chance those people who think Obama is barred from the presidency will ever be convinced otherwise. “There’s no amount of evidence or data that will change somebody’s mind,” says Michael Shermer, who is the publisher of Skeptic magazine and a columnist for Scientific American, and who holds an undergraduate and a master’s degree in psychology. “The more data you present a person, the more they doubt it … Once you’re committed, especially behaviorally committed or financially committed, the more impossible it becomes to change your mind.”

      Any inconvenient facts are irrelevant. People who believe in a conspiracy theory “develop a selective perception, their mind refuses to accept contrary evidence,” Chip Berlet, a senior analyst with Political Research Associates who studies such theories, says. “As soon as you criticize a conspiracy theory, you become part of the conspiracy.”

      Evan Harrington, a social psychologist who is an associate professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, agrees. “One of the tendencies of the conspiracy notion, the whole appeal, is that a lot of the information the believer has is secret or special,” Harrington says. “The real evidence is out there, [and] you can give them all this evidence, but they’ll have convenient ways to discredit [it].”

      Whatever can’t be ignored can be twisted to fit into the narrative; every new disclosure of something that should, by rights, end the controversy only opens up new questions, identifies new plotters. Perhaps the most common argument of those questioning Obama’s eligibility is that he should just release his full, original birth certificate, rather than the shorter certification, which is a copy. His failure to do so only proves there is reason to be suspicious, they say, and if the document was released, the issue would go away. But that’s unlikely. It was, after all, the Obama campaign’s release of the certification this summer that stoked the fever of conspiracy mongers.

      For believers, it works like this: So what if Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the director of Hawaii’s Department of Health, released a statement saying she has verified that the state has the original birth certificate on record? So what if she said separately that the certification looks identical to one she was issued for her own Hawaii birth certificate? Why didn’t her statement specify Obama’s birthplace? So what if a Hawaii Health Department spokeswoman later clarified that Fukino meant that Obama was born in Hawaii? So what if researchers for actually saw the physical copy of the certification and debunked much of the key “evidence” supposedly proving that the image posted online is a forgery? They’re not really independent. They’re funded by the Annenberg Public Policy Center, and Obama once (with Bill Ayers, no less) ran an entirely unrelated program that happened to be paid for with money donated by Walter Annenberg. And on and on and on.”

      If the long-form birth certificate were released, with its unequivocal identification of Hawaii as Obama’s place of birth, the cycle would almost certainly continue.”

    34. Michelle on December 10th, 2008 12:46 pm


      You still have yet to show me where he has published his Birth Certificate. How about his medical records & his college admission forms? Oh that’s right, he doesn’t have to because he says so.

      You still haven’t answered my question. What do you know about Barack Hussein Obama that would make him the best person to run our Country?

      He was virtually an unknown until he got mixed up with the Chicago scum. He used them to get elected and now he’s going to throw them under the bus like he does everybody else that he no longer needs.

      I really don’t care what you think of me YOYO. You can call me all the names you want but I am who I am and what I believe.

      You should probably read what you posted about conspiracy theories in regards to the 9/11 inside job theories that you liberals keep spewing about Bush. We had to listen to all these lies about Bush for 7 years so now you can listen to our theories about Obama (conspiracy or not)

      You Obama supports that think Mr. Obama is squeeky clean are either blind or in denial. The man is a prodigy of the Chicago scumbags. One of the dirties cities in the country and one of the worst crime invested cities in the country as well. How much did he clean up Chicago? Some of the worst schools in the country and you people really think he gives a crap about the middle or lower class. IF the dems are such bleeding heart liberals and want to help people why are there still so many poor people in this country. Why is Chicago & the state of Illinois still so corrupt when being run by dems?

      Again, I ask you what has President-Elect Obama done to help the American people or the people in Chicago (his hometown) or Illinois (where he was Senator)?

      Can you answer my questions or would you just rather continue to try and insult me and dance around the questions like your boy Obama?

    35. yoyo muffintop on December 10th, 2008 1:46 pm

      Good lord Michelle you are insane!

      Let me guess, you also believe in an alien race of shape-shifting lizard-people and believe Obama is part of the ancient cabal called the Illuminati.


      btw – you do know the folks behind your “birth” insanity are none other than the 9/11 truthers don’t you? haha

      Go to the library of congress read all 130 bills for yourself.
      Maybe you’ll run into Bigfoot and you two can discuss how the earth is flat.

    36. super dave on December 10th, 2008 2:40 pm

      yo: sorry, but Hawaiian secretary of state confirms that barrybama was not born in Hawaii. therefore, he is an illegal alien.

    37. Michelle on December 10th, 2008 3:33 pm

      No, I do not believe in aliens or Bigfoot but I do believe that you YOYO are still drinking that Obama Kool-aide…There you go with your insults again. Can’t you have a discussion without name calling?

      I see you still avoid answering my questions proving again that all you liberals do is spew your venom but have nothing to back up your claims.

      At least have some facts to back up what you claim or keep your opinions to yourself. I’d rather discuss these things with someone who doesn’t have to resort to name calling and can actually answer questions with some real information instead of what they have been spoon fed by the media.

      Hey but if that’s what gets you through the day then have at it.

      I on the other hand am not fooled by it.

      No…you are wrong about who is behind this birth certificate ordeal. Check it out for yourself if you want to know the truth, the first one to bring this to light is a Democrat himself and there are plenty more lawsuits filed about this.

      YoYo – like Michelle said you have Obama colored glasses on… you are an idiot who is quick to site which is severely left leaning…so anything you say has no credibility. How can they say they have seen the actual physical copy but the people that should see it haven’t?

      You can be fooled by his centrist picks although Daschle is LEFT, Hillary is LEFT, his energy team is LEFT. Some of these appointments will last for his first term. If he’s elected to a 2nd term, you will see him start to appease his far left base. Just wait until his national security team is announced…it will scare the sh*t out of you. Just like the fact that this man basically said it’s ok for Iran to develop nuclear weapons as long as they don’t use them against Isreal.

      He also is planning to make a speech in an Islamic nation that hates to try and smooth things over? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA TRIPLE HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! He really thinks he is GOD. He thinks His words will change the minds of people who are already out of their minds. Does he really believe that after he gives his speech back to his true roots, his deeply held beliefs, that terrorists will stop trying to kill Americans?

      Fact is, if he puts in a leftist national security team and pulls out of Iraq too soon, we will be hit in the homeland again. 9/11 was not Bush’s fault, it was Clinton’s! And no terrorist attack since then and NUMEROUS plots foiled by the policies and procedures created by the Bush administration that have WORKED! He took the fight to them. Bravo!

      As for the 9/11 conspiractors, the is NOT one single piece of EVIDENCE that support any of those nutbag theories. Those people should rot in hell!

      Based off what you write Michelle, calling you insane and a moron is not an insult.
      It the truth babydoll.

      How’s the tinfoil tiara fitting today? Isn’t the Hale-Bopp comet coming back? Maybe you’ll get a ride on that spaceship this time.


      btw, here’s who your hanging your tiara with (Berg, the leader of the birth certificate bs): “Bush should be jailed for slaughter and high treason”. Nice company you keep.

      Wishfull thinking on your part has nothing to do with hard reality. Sorry.

      Scott: “As for the 9/11 conspiractors, the is NOT one single piece of EVIDENCE that support any of those nutbag theories. Those people should rot in hell!”
      Scott, you do know that those exact 9/11 truthers are the ones behind the birth bs don’t you? Same people.
      So they should rot in hell for their 9/11 bullshit but not the “Obama bc” bullshit?
      Ok, that makes sense…only from you.

      Let me write it again so you can understand – the EXACT same 9/11 Truthers (who you believe should rot in hell) are the EXACT same people that believe Obama was born in Kenya.

      The following is from the person you “Obama bc” loons are believing/backing:

      “It is time for the nations of the world to come forth and take the leadership because of the failure of the United States Government and the States where crimes were committed on 09/11/01, where no thorough investigation and indictments occurred, to investigate, arrest and prosecute the people responsible for the murders on 9/11/01, specifically including George W. Bush and Richard Cheney.

      Bush and his cronies made 9/11 happen or let it happen. And, if they let it happen, then they made it happen. Either way, they are responsible; and more important, they have completely and unequivocally covered-it-up

      The trial and execution of Saddam Hussein marks the “end of a difficult year for the Iraqi people and for our troops” according to President Bush.

      Now, it is time for world leaders to take the lesson learned from Iraq and issue a warrant for the arrest of George W. Bush and Richard Cheney; arrest them; take them to a neutral country; try them for the murder of over 2,800 people from more than 80 countries on 9/11/01 and, when found guilty, sentence them appropriately. Jurisdiction would be proper in any of the more than 80 countries whose citizens were murdered on 9/11.

      Despite a near-complete corporate media embargo on the wealth of evidence indicating that the 9/11 attacks were caused or knowingly permitted to happen by top figures in the Administration and the military, 84 % of the U.S. public, according to an October 2006 CBS/NY Times poll, is unconvinced by the “Official Story,” and agrees that the President and others caused or allowed the attacks to happen.

      That an event such as 9/11 was desired by powerful Administration figures, including Cheney and Jeb Bush, the President’s brother, is a matter of record, as the Project for the New American Century’s [PNAC] blueprint for worldwide U.S. dominance entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses,” stated that the program they advocated could win popular support only with the help of a “catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor” which (we are supposed to believe to be coincidence) came to pass just 8 months after many of the co-signers of the PNAC document assumed high positions in the new Bush Administration in January 2001.

      As President John F. Kennedy stated, “Things do not just happen; they are made to happen.” There has never been an investigation of 9/11 that had not concluded, before it even began, that the Official Story convicting Osama bin Laden and absolving the Administration and the military of complicity of anything worse than “intelligence failures,” which thereby made the outcome a foregone conclusion.

      It is time that the men who had the motive, means and the opportunity to commit the terrible crimes of 9/11, and who have profited by it politically as well as financially, be exposed for their role and held to account.

      The world has suffered since the horrific acts of Bush and his cronies on 9/11, that being the events of 9/11 and the aftermath, the illegal act of war against Afghanistan and Iraq that has caused the death and injury of hundreds of thousands, including thousands of U.S. troops; the destruction of property and the enormous costs involved.

      Saddam was tried, found guilty and sentenced to death after being convicted of murder in the killings of 148 Shiite Muslims from an Iraqi town where assassins tried to kill him in 1982. This number of killings that Saddam Hussein was found guilty of is far less than Bush and his cronies caused to die on 9/11.

      The 148 Iraqi deaths for which Saddam was tried pales in number to the 750,000 dead at the hands of George W. Bush as a result of this illegal invasion of that country which includes babies, sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, elderly grandmothers and grandfathers, killed without remorse by George W. Bush and his war profiteering supporters.

      Bush continues the war in Iraq to keep the world’s attention there and not on the atrocities caused by him on 9/11, including the possibility of Bush sending up to 40,000 more troops to Iraq, even though a majority of the American people are against this increase.

      The world must act now because our own government has failed us. We cannot relent until real justice is reached. Only by exposing the truth of 9/11 and revealing how it was used as the “trigger event” to justify the neocon’s imperial policy can we put these events in proper prospective.”
