Will Dick Cheney be indicted by Nigeria?

It may not exactly what we would have expected but there is chance that we may finally see former VP Dick Cheney face some form of justice for his long list of high crimes. It may not be for his suspected criminal and treasonous acts regarding his involvement in 9/11, but for a bribery scheme to Nigerian officials for natural gas contracts for Halliburton subsidiary KBR. Keith Obleramann explains the Nigerian charges and that a warrant for Dick Cheney's arrest will be issued in the coming days. He also reveals how the Obama administration worked with (i.e. colluded) the GOP to influence the Spanish court to ignore its mandate to investigate 6 Bush administration officials for torture crimes sourcing a recently leaked cable.

Iraq Oil Deals Fulfill Cheney's Goals By Jason Leopold July 2, 2008

Okay, the dots are getting SO easy to connect, a literate 5 year old could figure this out . . .

The circumstantial evidence alone is stunning in its transparency. The statistical chances of "coincidence" for the hundreds of factual pieces must be nearing .000000000001, maybe less. : )

I wonder if Jason Leopold accepts 9/11 yet - that elements of our government were involved? I admired his writings and investigative journalism re the Plame affair when he was exclusively, I believe, at truthout.org.

These are the types of writers we need to persuade to look at the evidence, do the research re 9/11. They can help us reach a wider audience that has been primed for the 9/11 truth . . .

If you're at the NJ shore on Friday, July 4th, look for an aerial plane banner with a 9/11 truth message.

This day has renewed meaning for me as I imagine it does for a lot of you.

Happy Fourth of July!

Big Oil pockets Iraq - All's fair in business and war. By Derrick Z. Jackson

Great article other than he neglected to mention the 1.2 million plus dead Iraqis in the first sentence and, of course, the 3,000+ 9/11 victims and all the sick and dying 9/11 first responders, Big Oil and empire's initial collateral damage. -- Betsy

Big Oil pockets Iraq
All's fair in business and war.

Derrick Z. Jackson
writes for the Boston Globe

It took five years, the deaths of 4,100 U.S. soldiers, and the wounding of 30,000 more to make Iraq safe for Exxon.

It is the inescapable open question since the reasons given by President Bush for the invasion and occupation did not exist - neither the weapons of mass destruction nor Saddam Hussein's ties to al-Qaeda and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
