That's our Dubya, telling whoppers the world over. From Turkish Zaman Daily News Bush Promises Future Arrest of Bin Laden
US President George W. Bush in a surprising twist began his Asian tour in Afghanistan instead of India, and once again vowed the capture of terrorist Osama bin Laden.

More messes by Dubya...The US Rebuilding Plan Full of Cracks
In September 2002, nearly a year after deposing the Taliban, the US launched an aggressive effort to build or refurbish as many as 1,000 schools and clinics in Afghanistan by the end of 2004, documents show.
However, design flaws and construction errors undermined the initiative.
By September 2004, the effort's centrepiece - a 73 million-dollar US Agency for International Development programme - had produced only 100 finished projects, most of them refurbishments of existing buildings. As of the beginning of this month, only about 40 more had been completed and turned over to the Afghan government.
"The US effort was poorly conceived in a rush to show results before the Afghan presidential election in late 2004," said the report in the US daily. "The drive to construct earthquake-resistant, American-quality buildings in rustic villages led to culture clashes, delays and, what one USAID official called, extraordinary costs."
Professionals and scholars lecture about the physics involved in 911 with the buildings and how many things we were told about 911 that could not have happened the way the 911 Commission said, because they were violations of laws of nature and gravity... Remember, conspiracy theorists exist, because there are conspirators...

Swami Calls for an Up-Wising Wise Up, Everybody ... The Evolution Has Begun!By Swami Beyondananda
In 2005, Americans had to face the sad realization that the Bush Administration's "pro-life" stance appears to be limited to the unborn and the brain-dead. Despite being panned by critics everywhere, the Iraqi Horror Picture Show continued its run, as thousands and thousands of born fetuses - ours and theirs -- lost their right to life. While we may or may not have saved face by staying there, we have most definitely lost ass. And we've been assured we'll be stuck in that morass until -- well, until there's no more ass to lose. Meanwhile, more and more Americans reached another sad conclusion: We're not in Iraq to keep the peace, we're there to keep the pieces.
The signs of up-wising are everywhere. Even the most unpleasant stories are beginning to break through the soundless barrier and defy the President's "don't ask, don't tell" policy: "You promise not to ask us what we're doing, and we promise not to tell you." Although we've been inundated with "fear-gnomes" and ominously warned we have to protect ourselves in this dogma-eat-dogma world, a majority of Americans are no longer comfortable with the notion that the only way to defeat the "evil-doers" in the world is to out evil-do them. Although our President has assured us that "we don't torture," it is now common knowledge that we simply send detainees to countries that do torture when we want them to "testify under oaf."
As for those progressives who've been whining that the President "never listens" to them, well it turns out he's been listening all along. And thanks to the so-called Patriot Act (which, I understand, is about to be renamed the Eternal Insecurity Act), it looks like he'll be able to listen in even more -- all in the name of making us safe. But now even some Republicans are beginning to see that there's a difference between protection and the "protection racket." And with the recent revelations about Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff and other gold collar criminals, some of the more devout conservatives have come to realize that the "family values" they voted for bear an uncanny resemblance to Soprano Family values.
