WWJD?

Arianna Huffington blogs today on the hypocrisy of Tom DeLay "stepping up at the mike at the National Day of Prayer service last week and making a call for humility." Tom DeLay apparently said:

Think of what we could accomplish if we checked our pride at the door, if collectively we all spent less time taking credit and more time deserving it. If we spent less time on our soapboxes and more time on our knees.


Notes Huffington: "Transcripts of the event do not note whether any of the attendees broke out in laughter or choked on their bread rolls."

A truly transcendent moment.

  • Repent ye sinners and make amends. DeLay, Ney and a few others having arrangements with Abranoff and Kidan disrupted quite a few lives in Florida and on Reservations.

    Boulis was only one of numerous casualities caused by hostile takeovers enabled by DeLay and Company.

    For example, if someone were to contact Law Enforcement Agencies in Florida such as ATF, DEA and FBI some links involving Takeover of Suncruz could have been exposed. And here is why.

    Early in 2000 President Bush ordered NSA to provide Intel to Law Enforcement involved in fight against Drugs. Can postulate that money laundering was a priorty of numerous agencies. Any transactions involving Suncruz and associates could have been passed to OGA's including Florida Attorney General.

    Question is that when Red Flags went off at TRC Corporation why did not Law Enforcement react ? Maybe red flags did go off and that's why Boulis got stiffed.

    Americans should be ticked that 8 Billion Dollars of Taxpayer money is being spent on fighting drugs in Columbia while members of Congress trashed an American success story (Boulis) and allowed Organized Crime to enable Columbian Terrorist Drug Lords right here at home.

    Resign, Repent, go home and sin no more.

    Broward County, Fla. now that name sounds familiar.

  • U.S. Embassy Colombia cable, “Human Rights Review of Unit Proposed Under End-Use Monitoring Agreement: Colombia’s JTF-S (“Joint Task Force South”) Command Element,” February 4, 2000, Unclassified, 2 pp.

    Source: Freedom of Information Act Release to the National Security Archive

    U.S. training of the Colombian Army’s First Counternarcotics Battalion began in April 1999, under an obscure section of the defense budget known as Section 1004, a provision that does not require congressional notification. The unit became operational in December 1999, seven months before President Clinton approved funding for “Plan Colombia.” A major component of Plan Colombia is the “push into southern Colombia” coordinated by Joint Task Force South (JTF-S), controlling the activities of several subordinate units including the counternarcotics battalion.

    In this February 2000 cable, Embassy officials request that the State Department determine whether the “command element” of JTF-S is eligible to receive U.S. counterdrug assistance under the provisions of the Leahy law and the End-Use Monitoring Agreement (EUM). Ultimately cleared for assistance, the seven commanders of JTF-S were vetted as a distinct unit, separate from the units under the task force’s control. These subordinate units, the cable notes, have all been cleared by the State Department with the exception of the 2nd Mobile Brigade, members of which had been accused helping to coordinate the 1997 paramilitary massacre at Mapiripán. Two other units, the 12th and 24th brigades, were suspended from further assistance later that year, although the U.S.-supported counternarcotics brigade continued to coordinate its activities with these units under the JTF-S.(56)
