The special interest that had worked with these crooks all these years if they have a shred of loyalty they will pay for it (most likely will since they have been well served AT OUR EXPENSES).
Boy, that's really over the top--even for you. Do you really think and major international publisher is going to ask DoD to pay them to publish the book? Publishers will not want to share profits w/ a government agency. Have you totally lost it?

Don't believe everything you think

No you are the one who's clueless. The Dod id not the one paying, let me make it easy for ya:

A = Politician
B = special interest/lobbies
C = the people
D = Jayhawk

A + B = fuck C while B is making money

B makes sure that he promisses A some $$ for elections, cars boats and bitches and of course will take care of them after office.

C finds out about A and B's relationaship but as usual A will lie about it and will use cliche and bullshit to cover up the stink
C usually buys the bullshit and usually life goes on.
Sometimes C splits into C major and C minor each one singing a different tune because one is fed up with the lies and the A+B equation
Elections come A is booted out but B had promissed to rescue A with plan B, that is if A still has some influence or might smear B
B will support A fantasies of writing a book with cartoons so D can feel sorry for A and think that A+B was actually good for bird seeds.

Does that help? I can't draw cartoons sorry

I have neither the time nor the inclination to search through that list of several thousand URLs to find what does not exist. Why don't you just produce the quote to which you refer--or admit that you are a fraud.
First, Fleischer did not say it in any of the WH links I provided. Those were to show that his name was pretty much purged from the WHPS docs. There were only 361 hits on his name from the WH.gov search engine for 4 years work and most were articles where he was mentioned, not his Press releases. Note difference with T.Snow.

Next, read his book to glean his views. Best way to get the info. As for Woodwards, you might be the only Conservative to view it as a hatchet job. Most thought it was pretty clear and appreciated that he used references. It's those reference things that eliminate fraud and the like.

By the way, you really need to quit using the word fraud without back up. You still owe me an explanation on your "sources" from a previous very uncalled for comment.

It goes more like Lockheed or Halliburton "guarantee" X sales of the book pre contract. The publisher then provides a big “advance” to the writer who profits. The book hits #1 even though no one sees many copies going out the door of the local Barnes and Noble. How could that be??? Halliburton [or Corporate sponsor of choice] has 50,000 copies in a warehouse or they bought copies that never had to be printed. Very old publishing game. Wife’s MS in Library and Information Science comes in handy sometimes and this was explained years ago.

Jim Wright pioneered that. Thank Wright (and who can forget Rostenkowski?) for giving Newt something to talk about in the 80's and 90's.

By the way, you really need to quit using the word fraud without back up. You still owe me an explanation on your "sources" from a previous very uncalled for comment.
First, this started w/ a typical misstatement by GS: "Many, many people close to the administration would beg to differ. Cheney has called most of the shots, especially prior to 2004. That is not my opinion, I have no opinion, I wasn't there. That is the opinion of many people who were there. To which I said: "Name one!" To which you replied: "Ari Fleischer would be a good place to start." (And you referenced an impressive set of several hundred URL's that ostensibly would document your bogus claim.) To which I replied: "Ari Fleischer never said that!...Why don't you just produce the quote to which you refer--or admit that you are a fraud." Now you tell me to "...read his book to glean his views." You tried to perpetrate another fraud on us, and I called you on it. I'll say one last time that Ari never said any such thing, and if you are not a fraud please produce just one quote from him stating that Cheney has called most of the shots, especially prior to 2004. It is that simple.

I am not sure to which "previous very uncalled for comment..." of mine you refer, but if you would care to tell me, I will provide those "sources" that you request.

Don't believe everything you think
