Another California Tragedy.

A massive 100 + car / truck pile-up on Highway 99, a route I take often. And just like the recent fires in So Cal, this is the result of a natural climatological seasonal event. The nasty Tule Fog, which happens every winter in the San Joaquin Valley, often reduces driving visability to just a few feet in front of you as you drive down the freeway, and because some people drive like idiots (how many of you haven’t had someone speed past you while driving on a foggy night), this type of pile-up happens about once a year. Still, I wonder how long it will take before someone blames this on global warming. Then again, I doubt anyone will notice, since it happened in Fresno.

PS. This accident is already been added to the Wiki page linked above. Man, someone is on the ball.

Interesting Iraq News That Won't Make A Diffierence…

… with the “Bush Lied People Died” crowd anyway. The single source of faulty evidence concerning bio weapons in Iraq has been revealed. Though specific details are sketchy (and you know how much I like details), it would appear the US had been relying on this man’s intel to justify our fears of Iraqi military and WMD buildup since at least 1999, if not before. This encompasses the last two years of the Clinton administration, as well as the run up to war during the Bush administration. The 60 Minutes piece is damning to ex-CIA director George Tenet, who served under both Clinton and Bush, and seems to have gone out of his way to ignore any warnings the this source may not be as reliable as he seemed. And you have to keep in mind that Tenet was the final word on Iraqi related intel presented to both presidents. This is why Hillary voted for the war, has not definitively backed down on that vote, and has been so moderate on the “Bush Lied” meme. If Bush is impeached for lying about Iraqi intelligence, then Clinton must be brought up (again) on the same charges, since they both used the same intel to justify their actions against the sovereign nation of Iraq.

More on the subject here.

PS. I wonder if this is the info that Sandy Berger stuffed in his socks?
