Periodic Reminder Time: The proposed war on Iraq is only the latest outrage. Most of the others are being ignored, and many are nearly forgotten. So here's a reminder:

  • Civilian casualties in Afghanistan.
  • Brutal treatment and murder of POW's at Mazar-i-Sharif and elsewhere in Afghanistan.
  • Illegal indefinite detentions of hundreds after 9/11.
  • Unconstitutional USA Patriot Act.
  • Shadow government.
  • Enron, and the former Enron crooks in the Bush administration.
  • Halliburton.
  • Harken.
  • Cheney's energy plan.
  • Election 2000.
  • Unsolved anthrax investigation.
  • Prior knowledge of 9/11 attacks (okay, this is getting a little press now).
  • Support of coup attempt in Venezuela.
  • Osama bin Laden.
I'm sure I've forgotten some! Remind me and I'll add them to the list. Seems like enough outrages to keep Congress busy for a while. Why are new ones continually being added?
