Conyers, Harman and Thompson Seek Specifics on Disruptive Terror Plots


Congressman John Conyers, Jr.
Michigan, 14th District
Ranking Member, U.S. House Judiciary Committee
Dean, Congressional Black Caucus
www.house.gov/judiciary_democrats/index.html

Congressman John Conyers, Jr., Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, joined by Reps. Jane Harman and Bennie Thompson sent the following letter to White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card requesting information on terror plots:

Conyers Added: "On numerous occasions, the President has claimed successes in the war on terror without specifics to back up his assertions. We hope yesterday's speech is not one of those instances and look forward to learning about the specific details."

October 7, 2005
Dear Mr. Card:
In yesterday's speech, President Bush stated that the U.S. and our partners have disrupted at least ten serious al Qaeda terrorist plots since September 11th, including three al Qaeda plots to attack inside the United States.

We receive regular classified briefings on terrorist threats but the number ten came as news to us. We want assurances that the details of these ten cases will be briefed to the relevant committees of Congress.

Please contact us immediately so that we may arrange such a briefing.

Sincerely,
John Conyers, Jr., Ranking Member, Committee on the Judiciary
Jane Harman, Ranking Member, Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
Bennie Thompson, Ranking Member, Committee on Homeland Security

Anytime George W. Bush does something it is nothing but a distraction from the real story. As an example his Supreme Court Appointments, he knows that women is not qualified for that position, yet he gets the news media all stirred up looking in that direction, next week he will divert attention to something else, in so doing ,he is masking talks of what is really going on in his administration and of course talks of impeachment.....

I find it curious that just as the President gives his "back to 9/11" speech, Homeland Security warns New York of an expected terror attack on its subway system.

I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist, but this is just too coincidental to be believable.

Everything Bush says the terrorists are doing, threatening to do, or want to do are the very things that he is attempting to do. And so who is the real terrorist? He has one purpose for Americans, instill fear of terror.

"KEEP THE FEAR FLOWING!" REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT!! That is the Bushoviks montra. No proof that such plots even exhist.

This administration does nothing but lie to the American People.

The People's montra should be "IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH!!!"

The American people have to have the intelligence of a pin head to believe BUsh about the terrorist occurrences. ARe they unusual occurrences ?? Are they attempted attacks ?? Are they dogs barking from afar ?? Are they drunk men in their underwear howling like wolfs ??
What shall we Americans fear but fear itself ... U got it !! The answer is be as uncomfortable as they want you to be ....
Or has Osama sent Bush a letter or email to distract attention from the war in IRAQ ?? Or should we call Osama's parents and ask them were he is ???

remember zaxod beetlebrox?

Whenever Conyers and his like minded congresspeople ask a direct question of the Bush Administration, the answer is always the same: there isn't one.
It amazes me that even with obvious scandal, disregard of the law, cronyism and billions of dollars in taxpayers money gone missing that these criminals are not yet in jail. What is taking so long?

But it won't ever happen with the ReThugs in control of Congress.

"When the President Talks to God" (Conor Oberst)

When the president talks to God
Are the conversations brief or long?
Does he ask to rape our women's' rights
And send poor farm kids off to die?
Does God suggest an oil hike
When the president talks to God?

When the president talks to God
Are the consonants all hard or soft?
Is he resolute all down the line?
Is every issue black or white?
Does what God say ever change his mind
When the president talks to God?

When the president talks to God
Does he fake that drawl or merely nod?
Agree which convicts should be killed?
Where prisons should be built and filled?
Which voter fraud must be concealed
When the president talks to God?

When the president talks to God
I wonder which one plays the better cop
We should find some jobs. the ghetto's broke
No, they're lazy, George, I say we don't
Just give 'em more liquor stores and dirty coke
That's what God recommends

When the president talks to God
Do they drink near beer and go play golf
While they pick which countries to invade
Which Muslim souls still can be saved?
I guess god just calls a spade a spade
When the president talks to God

When the president talks to God
Does he ever think that maybe he's not?
That that voice is just inside his head
When he kneels next to the presidential bed
Does he ever smell his own bullshit
When the president talks to God?

I doubt it

I doubt it

They make these terror claims when politically convenient--
for example, after Delay has been indicted, and before Libby and Rove are indicted, and (perhaps) before Cheney and Dumbya are indicted as co-conspirators.

Scores of terrorists caught overseas (numbers don't match the data that Conyers et al receive)? Brand-new terror scares in NYC and Washington?
I smell Rove.

3-Americans finally waking up (Hope & pray it isn't too late!)

Excuse me, but would someone here be so kind as to tell me what color today's terrorism threat is? I am dashing to work, and need to know whether I should take my helmet, my gas mask, or my Cipro.
