Bush himself said that al-qaida has no relation with London plot against ten civil planes. They are Islamic fascists !!
Bush is a dishonest man, because he deceived the Americans about real motives of invading Iraq. Bush is violating US constitution by torturing and abusing detainees, under advise of Cheney and Rumsfeld. Bush lies by claiming that he fights terrorism in Iraq, better than fighting it in US. Bush is building seven giant military bases in Iraq. That is why Mr.the Pope Jihad is a must. We feel sad when the Pope and Bush grandfather say the same about Islam by degrading and accusing Islam of violence and lies !! Bush today follows his grandfather. He said if to Sharon that Israel is his priority, rather than America . Bush is spying on his people as 65% are against Iraq war. BBC in pollin 33 countries showed that Iraq invasion increased terrorism !! So Bush is a big lier !!

Bush Fights GOP Revolt Over Terror Bill

 

By TERENCE HUNT AP White House Correspondent

WASHINGTON Sep 16, 2006 (AP)— President Bush fought back Friday against a Republican revolt in the Senate over tough anti-terror legislation and rejected warnings that the United States had lost the high moral ground to adversaries. "It's flawed logic," he snapped.

Bush urged lawmakers to quickly approve legislation authorizing military tribunals and harsh interrogations of terror suspects in order to shield U.S. personnel from being prosecuted for war crimes under the Geneva Conventions, which set international standards for the treatment of prisoners of war.

Tough interrogations have been instrumental in preventing attacks against the United States, Bush said. "Time's running out" for the legislation, he warned, with Congress set to adjourn in a few weeks.

The president called a Rose Garden news conference to confront a Republican rebellion led by Sens. John Warner of Virginia, John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Susan Collins of Maine.

To the administration's dismay, Colin Powell, Bush's former secretary of state, has joined with the lawmakers. Powell said Bush's plan to redefine the Geneva Conventions would cause the world "to doubt the moral basis" of the fight against terror and "put our own troops at risk."

Seven weeks before the November elections, the dispute left Republicans fighting among themselves rather than with Democrats about national security issues that have been a winning theme for the GOP in past elections.

Responding to Bush, McCain rejected the president's assertion that an alternative bill approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee dealing with the trial and interrogation of terror suspects would require the closure of the CIA's detainee program.

McCain said the measure would protect agents from criminal and civil liability and, by not reinterpreting the meaning of the Geneva Conventions, uphold the nation's obligations.

"To do any less risks our reputation, our moral standing and the lives of those Americans who risk everything to defend our country," the senator said.
