Thursday UPDATE on UPDATE: Scroll to August 27 post for an UPDATE on the Comair crash...lack of sleep seems to be pulling ahead.
7:00 pm UPDATE: from LegitGov.org:
NSA Mobilizes Against Leaks 30 Aug 2006 The National Security Agency has instructed all of its employees to "actively" watch for unauthorized disclosures of classified information in the press and online, and to report such disclosures to the authorities.

Bush White House said subpoenaed by wiretap lawyers 29 Aug 2006 Two attorneys representing claimants in a lawsuit over wiretapping by the National Security Agency claim that they have sent subpoenas to the White House today, RAW STORY has learned.
Here's my earlier post of today:
Mr. Bush recently has increasingly emphasized that if the U.S. withdraws from Iraq, the "enemy will follow us home," as he said at a fund-raiser for former football star Lynn Swann's Pennsylvania gubernatorial campaign.
Yet the greatest enemy in our measly 230-year history is already among us and occupying the White House and the Pentagon. We could've turned the puppy away a few years ago--beginning with Jimmy Carter's residency, but we didn't--we had no clue what was on their agenda.
Now we have a flea-infested kennel of rottweilers bedeviling us.
The rottweiliers are playing poker with our lives and futures while Iran plays chess. Rummy is disturbed at how smart the enemy is and I'm disturbed at how dumb he and his fellow litter mates are. Hubris has its own particular streak of stupidity, it seems. With their "regime change" mantra, they pretend not to notice that it is their regime which needs changing most. "New fascism" is the same old same old, Rummy, and you should know.
Then there's greedy imperialism from our robber barons being revealed in Bloomberg.com 's article, "Oil Company CEO Pay Averaged $32.7 Million in 2005, Study Says"...does that make you want to buy another SUV? I think not.
Ah, November--how I wish it would make a difference. Find a non-professional politician to vote for if you can, and insist upon term limits, would be my best advice for America--and check the membership roster of the Trilateral Commission before you vote--if you don't, it'll be new boss same as the old. From Carter to Clinton to to Pappy Bush to Volcker and Cheney to Gore--they wear different masks, but have the same masters...including some of our CEOs and media muckity mucks.
Talk about being sold out--the scale is so mindboggling (and long-in-planning) that average citizens prefer to ignore it--and their own complicity points the leash at their muzzles, fleas and all.

On TV now: Alabama Pastor Dwayne Blue was arrested for praying too loud at a revival. This news from the "700 Club"--funny how Robertson puts this bit on his program without mentioning that it's the Bush police state doing the arresting.
And don't fret--I turned on the tv and it was on the channel for this program--it's like listening to Rush in my car--the signal only picks up there so I spy and marvel at his techniques while driving!
