Condoleeza Rice says that it "kind of doesn't ring true that you have to shock me into something I was very involved in." In Shannon, Ireland today she denied being told by George Tenet and Cofer Black on July 10, 2002, that they were very very worried about al-Qaida's determination to strike inside the U.S.
Bob Woodward is saying there is more to come out on these issues besides what's in his book, State of Denial.
Aside from Condi's extreme duh quality of what must have been quite a hastily called meeting between the three, she remains determined to strike a note of support for her man, George Bush.
There were many warnings reaching her from various sources--how many should it have taken before her bubble was pierced with understanding? Or did she/they--as conspiracy theorists believe--welcome the strike to justify their own war intentions?
Looking at the transits for July 10, 2001, it's interesting to see that the Sun was conjunct Rice's natal Moon 18 Cancer--Cancer, sign fof the mother and concerned with nourishment and security. Security. Her reigning need (Moon) is for Security, and the Sun was highlighting these issues for Condi that day. But it seems her mind was on chickens or something...
"18 Cancer": "A hen scratching the ground to find nourishment for her progeny."
Keyword: FULFILLING LIFE'S RESPONSIBILITIES (oops--kind of doesn't ring true that she was "very involved")...
Keynote: the practical concern with everyday nourishment necessary to sustain one's outreaching activities (guess her concern was with was HER activities, not bin Laden's.)
That's from Rudhyar's Sabian Symbols. The negative/shadow side from Edmund Jones:
idle bustle and unprofitable labor.
Seems to me that Rice has always been employed above her capacities or that at the least her loyalty to Bush is a blindspot to any and all common sense. The threat was so..."nebulous," she says. Naughty Nebulous Neptune, planet of veils, illusions, and deceptions...of propaganda and confusion.
Rice's natal Sun Sco/Moon Cancer: tendency to let subjective hunches replace objective reasoning; a kind of egocentric sensitivity that insists on making the world come to you.
They came, and she gave them the "brush off."
Images: A mother eagle (!) defends her babies with immense courage (wrong babies apparently--defending the Sheeple would've been better)...A mother passionately defends her delinquent child and pleads for a compassionate verdict.
Defending...Security...July 10, 2001 was a red-letter day for these issues, but a brush-off from Condi to George Tenet and Cofer Black and their worries about al-Qaida attacks on the Sheeple was her only response.
(If you've read my Chiron-Uranus Types in Government hereupon, you know the "delinquent child" is George with his adolescent mummy-poppy complexes...imho.)
Rice: No Memory of CIA Warning of Attack but I hear that rosemary is good for the memory...and there's always Gingko biloba.
Now on to the Foley pedophile email mess:
UPDATE Tuesday 6:30 pm: Despite Pressure, Hastert Won't Resign because Bush is standing by yet another of his men and it's having an effect.
Apparently more of an effect than Foley's Instant Messages pining for goodnight kisses from boys, and invitations to under-age teens to come to his Capitol Hill townhouse "for a few drinks."
Lawyers are saying now that Foley was molested when he was younger. Yeah, that gets passed on, doesn't it?
In a letter, the Christian Coalition is "standing behind" Hastert, Bush is standing by him, and as Jon Stewart might call it, there are "reach arounds" enough for all.
Such is Washington. #
Ten months after the Republican leadership was apprised of Foley's tendencies, it hits the news. Is this a reverse-October Surprise to take heat off other issues and to try to manage this hot-potato scandal?
Well, Hastert and pals have been sitting on it for months--not that they haven't been dreamily wishing it could be kept quiet (guess Karl said, no)...and the safety of interns and pages be dam-ed in the meantime.
Today Hastert announced a "hotline" (unfortunate choice of word?) for pages (and interns?) to call in their own problems with Capitol Hill predators--I'm assuming they mean to out ANY DC politician who's got pedophilic leanings. Hope that doesn't result in a DELUGE (a Neptunian word) of calls and complaints.
At least when Lewinsky went to Washington, it was with the express purpose of attaching herself to Bill Clinton--which pales, imho, to this unearthing of perversions. Brings a similar scandal to mind which was better managed during Bush Sr's White house tenure, doesn't it?
Update 7:30 pm: Aghast Foley Criticizes Naughty Clinton 1998:
GOPedophiles, the lords of hypocrisy - Mark Foley on Bill Clinton in 1998: "It's more sad than anything else, to see someone with such potential throw it all down the drain because of a sexual addiction." Congress sees through party-colored glasses By Bill Adair 12 Sep 1998 For more than a week, members of Congress said they would avoid partisan politics when they got Kenneth Starr's report on President Clinton... Republicans were aghast at Clinton's behavior, with many saying it showed he had lied and abused his power. "It's vile," said Rep. Mark Foley, R-West Palm Beach. "It's more sad than anything else, to see someone with such potential throw it all down the drain because of a sexual addiction." ....Some of the strongest reaction Friday was in response to Starr's account of [Monica] Lewinsky performing oral sex on Clinton as he chatted with members of Congress on the telephone. That was "just sad," Foley said. "It's unbelievable that he could behave so carelessly in that setting." #
Neptune's ongoing triggering of the "Unmasking" degree will be lifting more disgusting rocks (Saturn) for the vermin and roaches to scatter about...which well describes the purpose of this blog--outing bwo Astrology the politicians who infest our nation and our Capitol. (Yet pedophilia was never on my SO'W agenda.)
I've been hearing for a while now that bedbugs have been making a comeback in America and they are varmints notoriously difficult to stamp out. But they can't be any harder to get rid of than the current infestation on Capitol Hill--this is the worst crop of boll weavils ever seen in our 230 years.
Makes ya itchy just thinking of Foley and the Gang.
And Mr.A.Cat has written a timely if unfortunate limerick entitled, Kitten from Foley, over at Lim's Limericks which hopefully isn't quite as bad for you as reading Foley's sorry emails. If it gives you hives, let me know.
