US dungeons in Syria ... (Below threshold)

US dungeons in Syria

SYRIA!? Are you kidding me? We have US dungeons in Syria? Unreal. The Washington Post is reporting that the US detained an innocent Canadian, and transported him to Syria for the purpose of "renditioning" him (beatings, torture, extracting false confessions, etc.).

Turns out the guy was innocent. Whoops, our BAD! So sorry, please accept this Presidential Sharpie as a token of our apologies.

From the Washington Post this morning:

"Canadian intelligence officials passed false warnings and bad information to American agents about a Muslim Canadian citizen, after which U.S. authorities secretly whisked him to Syria, where he was tortured, a judicial report found Monday."


"Arar, now 36, was detained by U.S. authorities as he changed planes in New York on Sept. 26, 2002. He was held for questioning for 12 days, then flown by jet to Jordan and driven to Syria. He was beaten, forced to confess to having trained in Afghanistan -- where he never has been -- and then kept in a coffin-size dungeon for 10 months before he was released, the Canadian inquiry commission found."

"Still short of our goal"..... (Below threshold)

"Still short of our goal".. Wow, this isn't going well at all.

I guess people have figured out that it's hopeless, and donating to Rightnuts is a waste of money.

Gee....Can you get somone other than McCain as your spokesperson?

I guess you didn't take a look at the totals. When it comes to total money contributed, we are doing quite well. Great, actually. What we are falling short of currently is the 100 donations per candidate goal. For some candidates more than 100 contributions have been collected over the past 14 days, but for others, we are still a bit short. So actually it is going quite well, just better for some candidates than others. We are now trying to raise money for those candidates that have not yet reached the 100 contributions mark. Some candidates are better known or in more high profile races, and have collected a bigger share of the contributions. We are pushing now to help the lesser known candidates catch up.

Putting on a happy face might help, but it's certainly too late in New York.

Poll: NY Dems could win all top posts

Led by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and state Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, Democrats could be positioned for an electoral sweep in New York that would leave them in control of every statewide elected office for the first time in more than six decades.

Despite overwhelming voter enrollment advantages, the lengthy runs of Republicans Thomas Dewey, Nelson Rockefeller and now George Pataki as governors, and Jacob Javits and Alfonse D'Amato as senators have kept Democrats from holding all statewide offices since 1942.

But the first post-primary statewide poll, out Monday from Siena College's Research Institute, reported that Spitzer is maintaining a huge lead — 72 percent to 21 percent — over John Faso, a former state Assembly minority leader, in the race to replace Pataki.

Spitzer seems to be running... (Below threshold)

Spitzer seems to be running as a conservative (his primary message is lower taxes)...

No one is running against Hillary if we're honest with ourselves...

The 'impeach Bush' nobody running against Sweeney's going to get smoked...

It's still a tossup whether the State Senate will flip to the Democrats, and since they already spend like drunken sailors who really cares...

The Republicans in NY are mostly liberals anyway...

What? We have a Republican party in NY?

Is that the best you can do? Say things are going badly because democrats are doing well in one of the bluest states in the country? How lame can you get? News flash! Nancy Pelosi reelected in San Francisco! Republicans doomed!

oh yeah, forgot to mention ... (Below threshold)

oh yeah, forgot to mention that Pataki's put 5 of the 7 judges on the Court of Appeals and they serve 14 year terms...so there's no way liberals are taking the judicial any time soon.

Yap Fatze, this is very true.
