A Little KISS

Snarkless, today. I've got the bird flu.

Report Raises New Questions on Bush, WMDs:
"WASHINGTON - The White House faced new questions Wednesday about President Bush's contention three years ago that weapons of mass destruction had been found in Iraq.

The Washington Post reported that a Pentagon-sponsored team of experts determined in May 2003 that two small trailers were not used to make biological weapons. Yet two days after the team sent its findings to Washington in a classified report, Bush declared just the opposite.

'We have found the weapons of mass destruction,' Bush said in an interview with a Polish TV station. 'We found biological laboratories.'"
Analysts Say a Nuclear Iran Is Years Away:
"Western nuclear analysts said yesterday that Tehran lacked the skills, materials and equipment to make good on its immediate nuclear ambitions, even as a senior Iranian official said Iran would defy international pressure and rapidly expand its ability to enrich uranium for fuel."
Rumsfeld Rebuked By Retired Generals:
"The retired commander of key forces in Iraq called yesterday for Donald H. Rumsfeld to step down, joining several other former top military commanders who have harshly criticized the defense secretary's authoritarian style for making the military's job more difficult.

'I think we need a fresh start' at the top of the Pentagon, retired Army Maj. Gen. John Batiste, who commanded the 1st Infantry Division in Iraq in 2004-2005, said in an interview. 'We need leadership up there that respects the military as they expect the military to respect them. And that leadership needs to understand teamwork.'"
Rolling Stone : Meet Mr. Republican: Jack Abramoff:
"So this is it, finally. By the time this magazine hits the newsstands, Jack Abramoff -- right-wing megalobbyist and great feckless shitwad of our new American century -- will be but a tick of the geological clock away from The End. There will be no rack, no stoning, no scorpion-filled sand pit, no bucket of fire ants. Just a sanitary plea agreement and a single blow of the gavel, and 'Casino Jack' Abramoff will disappear for a few years of weightlifting and Talmudic study."
Rival bands clash over little-person KISS tribute:
"They might be pint-sized performers onstage, but offstage they're in a giant-sized dispute.

Joey Fatale, the 4-foot, 4-inch New Yorker who heads the all-dwarf KISS tribute band MiniKiss, is denying published reports that he tried to sneak past security last month at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to confront a rival band leader, 4-foot 'Little' Tim Loomis of Tiny Kiss, for allegedly ripping off his idea for such a group."
