Katrina Video Refuels Debate Over Bush’s Response

The video that made a liar out of Bush on Katrina has reignited the controversy over his administration’s incompetent response to the hurricane.
Democrats are calling for an independent probe into the catastrophe, and the video has even taken enough of the heat off ex-FEMA Director Michael “Heckuva Job” Brown so that he’s now calling for the firing of Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff.

If Ginsburg Fell Asleep, So Did Media

Did Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg fall asleep while hearing a key redistricting case—as Fox charges? If so, most traditional media outlets didn’t report it.
A conservative website poses an interesting question here: if Justice Thomas or Scalia fell asleep, would most news outlets ignore that, as well?

Arianna Huffington banters with Stephen Colbert
From crooksandliars.com

Arianna Tries to Convert Colbert

In a hilarious exchange, ex-conservative Huffington defends herself against charges of treachery from the arch-conservative Stephen Colbert.
After months of also-ran status, “The Colbert Report” has been giving “The Daily Show” a run for its money lately (no small feat, considering that “The Daily Show” is perhaps the best program on television).

U.S.-India Nuclear Deal Raises Fears

Bush’s historic deal with India will shield some Indian nuclear plants from international inspections. A proliferation expert tells the N.Y. Times that this will allow India to “amass as many nuclear weapons as it wants. This is Santa Claus negotiating.”

Pay Your Bills, Become Terror Threat

A retired Texas schoolteacher pays off a larger-than-usual chunk of his credit card bill—and the payment gets frozen as Homeland Security investigates. “It’s scary how easily someone in Homeland Security can get permission to spy,” says the teacher.

Ports Deal to Close by Monday?

A Bush official claims that the Dubai ports deal will close Friday or Monday, despite a 45-day review by the U.S. government.
Uhhh, can anyone help us figure this one out? It seems ludicrous, but then again, so was Bush’s immediate response to Sept. 11.

O’Reilly Threatens Caller re Olbermann

Bill O’Reilly and MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann have been feuding for a while now (background story here, a video example, and another clip), and on Thursday, when a caller to O’Reilly’s show merely mentioned Olbermann’s name, Bill cut the line and said, “We have your phone number and we’re going to turn it over to Fox security, and you’re going to get a visit”—as though the caller was threatening O’Reilly—when in fact O’Reilly was threatening the caller!
UPDATE: FOX security calls back

Bush: Torture Ban Not Valid at Gitmo

Truly shocking: White House lawyers are arguing that the new law banning cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment of detainees does not apply to people held at Guantanamo.
Of course, we should have seen this coming when Bush, upon signing the law, brushed off Congress and America by reserving the right to ignore the law under his powers as commander in chief.

Bush Knew More Than He Let On About Iraq

Bush never let the nation in on the fact that the Energy and State departments had given him reports that cast major doubts on Saddam’s WMD capacity and his willingness to attack the U.S. The National Journal has this major exclusive.
It has become undeniable that Bush & Co. never had any intention of allowing America to properly weigh all the evidence available on Saddam’s prewar capabilities and intentions. (Hat tip: Brad Blog)
