Front Page: Hillary and Obama Meet, Zimbabwe Halts Opposition, Bush Overstated Iraq

  • Hillary and Obama Meet: After fooling the entire press corps, Obama held a secret meeting with Clinton last night in Washington DC. Obama was scheduled to board the campaign plane after a rally in Virginia, and gave the press the slip, staying off the plane, and on the way to Washington. They met in a secret "third party" location and according to aides, “Senator Clinton and Senator Obama met tonight and had a productive discussion about the important work that needs to be done to succeed in November.” Clinton is planning to endorse Mr. Obama tomorrow at a farewell rally with her supporters in Washington.
  • Zimbabwe Halts Opposition: After detaining opposition candidate Morgan Tsvangirai for the second time in as many days, Zimbabwe's authorities have canceled several opposition rallies ahead of the June 27 presidential election run-off. The opposition party said they'd received a police letter that saying that "several future public rallies" were to be banned because of security fears, effectively silencing the only method the party has to communicate with supporters.
  • Bush Overstated Iraq: In a 170-page Senate committee report released yesterday, Senate Democrats and some Republicans concluded that President Bush and his aides built the public case for war against Iraq by exaggerating available intelligence on Saddam Hussein’s links to al Qaeda. The report includes five years of investigations by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence into the use, abuse and faulty assessments of intelligence leading to the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. Senator Rockefeller, chair of the intelligence panel said, “The president and his advisers undertook a relentless public campaign in the aftermath of the attacks to use the war against al Qaeda as a justification for overthrowing Saddam Hussein," while a top Republican calls the report a “waste of committee time and resources.”

they are going to have to report on celebrity news again since the campaign is national now. and i'm glad congress has admitted what the rest of us have known for years. of course they overstated the Iraqi threat. we've been bombing them since clinton was in office. no way we didn't know what they were up to.

I am so losing faith in my President Bush. I'm sad now. I for one blame the dam* advisers b/c God helped Bush in his decisions and that counts.

I personally don't see anything wrong with them having a meeting just the two of them. The media should be invited to everything that happens. This was a meeting between two people in a living room. It needed to be a private conversation.
em1282 em1282 9 years
So don't be hasty, I'll give you a try, if you really bug me then I'll say goodbyyyyyye... Ah, such good words to live by. Also, HarmonyFrance, I'm assuming that pic is of you, but if you ask me there's not much of a difference between *you* and that last pic of Kate Winslet. For serious, girl. ;)
