Murray Waas is the new Bob Woodward.

Howard Dean writes
about the Bush doctrine (and more) for Common Dreams
"I am what is commonly referred to as a social liberal and a fiscal conservative."
In other words, he's not only about the war, it's the economy stupid.
Iraq in a Nutshell

A WARMONGER EXPLAINS WAR TO A PEACENIK
A light hearted look at the oft repeated justifications for war in Iraq and their counter arguments.
The Stewart For America Petition.
"We, the undersigned, hereby request that French Stewart immediately change his name to 'Freedom' Stewart." Long live America.
The tide is turning.
A new poll
from the Pew Research Center indicates that the Bush Administration is losing support for a war against Iraq, with only 29% favoring war if U.N. inspectors fail to find weapons of mass destruction.
Polls are looking considerably worse in Great Britain
, where 47% of the public disapprove of an attack on Iraq, compared to just 30% in favor of such an attack.
Blair is certain that he can get the British public to support war
, however, even if Britain goes to war without U.N. support
"When and if that time came, people would find the reasons acceptable and satisfactory because there is no other route available to us."
The Liberaral Quandry on Iraq
[nytimes reg req'd]. [warning : iraq political story]. As a "liberal hawk", I have had some issues regarding whether to support a war with Iraq or not. In this article, George Packer talks to four liberals (David Rieff, Leon Wieseltier, Michael Walzer and Paul Berman) about what they think, and presents a sort of top ten list of reasons for or not. After reading the article, I'm a little less confused about where I stand, and a little closer to coming to grips with it
Not standing up to Bush on Iraq is costing the Democrasts money.
I work fund raising for the DNC, DSCC, and DCCC, and all three have seen a drop in fund raising dollars over the last two months. The Dems claim it's a good year no matter what the numbers say, but I beg to differ, as a person working the frontline of their telemarketing campaigns the callers are hearing serious complaints from the donors, and we in middle management are getting no response on what to tell the donors. With the House having voted for Bush's resolution, and the Senate set to pass it, is it too late to save face with their donors?
Gore questions timing of Iraq concern
Is it proper to invade Iraq? This would be an unprecedented move for the US military as Iraq has not attacked the US anyone the US has defense treaties with.
"Republican National Committee spokesman Jim Dyke called Gore's comments "irresponsible."
"This is no time to attack the president or Republicans for their handling of the war for political gain," he said."
Hmmm..so he admits the Iraqi attack IS for partisan political gain, eh? I would have never suspected it.
