Why is Bush's Sept 11 wargasm party on the national mall still happening? You'll recall this is the big event Bush and the Pentagon are planning on September 11 in order to link Sept 11 to the Iraq war and to help Bush's falling approval ratings.
I mean, how crass can Bush be, he's still going to hold some massive party on the mall to focus the nation's attention on Iraq while people are literally dying in New Orleans?
This is the PENTAGON running this event in only 10 days, folks. How many Pentagon employees are going to be working on this party instead of helping save the dying people in New Orleans? How much Pentagon money and equipment is going to be spent on this propaganda party while people are dying in the south?
This is an email sent out by the US Department of Health and Human Services to its employees yesterday afternoon, only 3 minutes before Bush spoke to the nation about the hurricane. Those are some priorities the Bush administration has. While people are dying in New Orleans our top health agency is being told to devote its time and energy to a party.

Subject: Commemoration of Patriot Day
In twelve days, we will commemorate Patriot Day, a day to remember the tragic events of September 11, 2001, a day to honor members of the Armed Forces currently serving at home and abroad, and a day to reiterate our commitment to the freedoms we enjoy. I will honor Patriot Day by participating in the Freedom Walk, a memorial event sponsored by the Department of Defense. I invite you as employees of the Department of Health and Human Services to join me.
The Freedom Walk begins at 10 a.m. in the Pentagon's south parking lot, winds two miles through Arlington National Cemetery and over the Potomac River, and ends at the Reflecting Pool on the National Mall where country music star Clint Black will perform. The walk is free, but people must register by visiting www.AmercaSupportsYou.mil
September 11 marked a change in the way we view our world, our nation and ourselves. The betterment of ourselves and our country is our response. In whatever way you choose to commemorate the horrendous acts of early September four years ago, let us once again renew our gratitude for the freedoms we enjoy and reaffirm our commitment to tolerance, peace and liberty throughout the world.
