Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Forged Documents Must Be Investigated -- Unless They Are From The Bush Administration

Josh Marshall has a good post on his blog
In Newsweek this afternoon, Mike Isikoff and Mark Hosenball have a piece that touches on the fact that the FBI still hasn't managed to interview Rocco Martino, the guy at the center of the forged Niger uranium documents story. They put the question to the FBI and were told by a "U.S. law-enforcement official ... [that] the FBI is seeking to interview Martino, but has not yet received permission to do so from the Italian government."


The Bureau may well be looking to interview Martino now that they've been put on the spot.

But are they really willing to take 'no' for an answer from the Italians?

And more to the point, if it's really a jurisdictional issue, why didn't they try to interview Martino last month when he was in New York?

Or if not then, how about when he flew here in June?

The White House is now saying that it's imperative to get to the bottom of who's behind the CBS Memo forgeries. And they're right. But the US government has never made any serious effort to find out who is behind the Niger uranium forgeries.

Why not?

-- Josh Marshall

The claim that Iraq was buying Uranium from Niger for building Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction was a key point in convincing Congress and the Nation to go to War with Iraq, and found it's way into President Bush's State of the Union Address to Congress and the Nation. When it was pointed out that this whole argument was based on forged documents the Bush Administration said, "Oh, well. We were fooled. Silly us." And let the matter drop. Forged Documents were passed onto the Bush Administration allegedly (if they didn't already know they were forgeries -- it took the UN a couple of hours to figure out that they were forgeries, but the Bush Administration had them for over a year, and couldn't figure that out -- right!) causing it to demand a War in Iraq, and no attempt is made to find out who is responsible, and punish them. But documents about Bush's Stateside Vietnam War Years that the secretary who wrote the real documents says contained much the same information as the real documents --- these must be found out and NOW!!!!!!! Did the Bush Vietnam memos cause us to go to war? NO! Did the Forged Niger Documents cause us to go to war? YES!!!! Cheney, the big imbecile, still thinks they are legitimate. Actually, he knows they are Forgeries, but he's hoping that by continually claiming that they are real he can fool the American People who Cheney thinks are dumb as a box of rocks. We'll see if a majority of the Americans are as dumb as Cheney thinks they are in November. Right now it's a toss-up.

Thanks for reading my blog. I appreciate it. I really do. It's nice to know that I'm not talking to the wind when I post comments to my blog, so your taking the time to post a comment is greatly appreciated. Thank you. I'm sorry that the subject matter I choose to post in my blog does not meet with your approval, but it is after all my blog. And the news items that the evening news in the US refuses to broadcast are not getting to the American People who deserve to know what they are not being told. At least I think so. That's why I post the news stories that aren't getting out on Fox News, CNN, MS-NBC, CBS, ABC, and NBC. I like to think that in some small way I am getting a bit of the rest of the news out to people such as yourself. Again it is a pity that you don't share my passion for this endeavor or perhaps my viewpoints. And that's OK. Thanks again for posting a comment on my blog.
