Free Iraqi: Asking few questions makes a difference.

Free Iraqi: Asking few questions makes a difference.

The above is well worth reading. Recommended to me by Iraq the Model.


And the thing about Stephanie is....at tribal council she did exactly what any human being would do. She thought it was over, she hated that and she cried, without going overboard. But the GREAT thing she did, is she never once said it was unfair! It may have been implied that life would be fairer if those who didn't really come to play weren't part of the action but she never said it. Bonus points for Steph, may she go on and on!

The other Memo

The truth is working hard to become part of the daily lexicon. What a good thing that bloggers from all stripes are on it's side.

Laugh out loud funny

Chrenkoff found this that cracks me up. (Forgive, me but I can't figure out how to connect directly to the specific blog here. See his first post on April 7, 2005.)

The opening paragraph from my favorite news wire service, Agence France-Presse:
"US President George W. Bush knelt before the body of Pope John Paul II early today, paying homage in Saint Peter's Basilica to one of the leading critics of the US-led war on Iraq."
In the year 2050, when a whole new generation brought up on AFP news stories grows us, a son will ask his father: "Dad, who was that John Paul II guy?" And the dad will say: "I think he was one of the leading critics of the US-led war on Iraq, son. You know, like Michael Moore and Jacques Chirac."

Just joking, but I'm sure that AFP is seeing some delicious irony here, while everyone else simply sees the President of the United States paying respects to one of the greatest figures of the past century.

Update: Reader DubiousD has an alternative opening paragraph: "Former US President Bill Clinton knelt before the body of Pope John Paul II early today, paying homage in Saint Peter's Basilica to one of the leading critics of extramarital sex."

I don't know why I'm attempting to blog when there are blogs like this out there!
Captain Ed is ahead of the curve again. Here's my small contribution to bring this story to light.

Animal Tracking

I had the most amazing day yesterday. An Animal Tracking class was offered through Longmont Free University on Animal Tracking. Patrick Archambeau was the instruction and we had an amazing day, just getting introduced to "seeing" through tracker eyes. Patrick learned his skills through patience, practice and Tom Brown Jr's school in New Jersey. The amount of information we started to learn how to see was incredible.
The Archambeau's have a wildlife rehabilitation home and teach this class along with many others. I highly recommend them.

April 1st

Today is my birthday!
So go outside and play.

New news on WMD?

I remember thinking, no, knowing that there was no way the President had specific proof of WMD, because if there was, it would have been as easy as calling the inspection teams and saying, go to this place and you will find X.
During the whole buildup to war, everyone I knew, knew this was true. No matter what words came out of DC, we all assumed there was no specific proof, but that it was assumed that Sadaam had WMD and we'd find it when we got there. I basically figured we went to war for ALL the reasons listed in the joint resolution signed by Congress, and figured that the WMD would show up later. Isn't that what everyone figured?
While this new report is important to have done, it seems a bit like old news.

WASHINGTON — A presidential commission said Thursday that "the intelligence community was dead wrong in almost all of its prewar judgments" on Iraq's arsenal. The commission also warned in a scathing report that the CIA and other agencies may be equally blind now about nuclear threats posed by countries such as Iran and North Korea.
