Bush to Meet with Pope

On June 4, meaning he'll probably be out of town once agains for a big protest march (ANSWER is planning a march on the Pentagon on June 5). Apparently the Pope and his minions will give Dubya an earful:
"To bomb a mosque, to enter holy cities, to put women soldiers in contact with naked men, shows a lack of understanding of the Muslim world that I would label astonishing," Cardinal Laghi said.

"Bridges must be built with Islam, not pits dug," he suggested. "And priority should be given to the Israeli-Palestinian question, which is the first source of terror."

He added that "the forces present in Iraq not only must not be in fact under the command of the United States, but they must not even give the impression that they are."
