A 'good day to bury bad news' was 9/11, at least through the eyes of the government, I am sure.
Yesterday was a good day to release the De Menezes report, which slammed the Met, because the Minneapolis Bridge Disaster was a convenient fig leaf.
We know government manipulates the news with the willing help of MSM.
Sometimes the MSM needs to do no more than just ignore a story.
Here is a perfect example.
On 17th of July, Dubbya signed yet another executive order.
'The Executive Order entitled "Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq" provides the President with the authority to confiscate the assets of "certain persons" who oppose the US led war in Iraq:
In substance, under this executive order, opposing the war becomes an illegal act. '
"I have issued an Executive Order blocking property of persons determined to have committed, or to pose a significant risk of committing, an act or acts of violence that have the purpose or effect of threatening the peace or stability of Iraq or the Government of Iraq or undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq or to provide humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people."
(That it mentions 'act or acts of violence' is neither here nor there, because we know any word can mean anything to these Humpty Dumpty Desperados.)
How soon before The Clunking Fist makes it official here too?
As we have seen, the right of Birdwatchers and Brass Rubbing Enthusiasts to disagree with the Brown Junta has already been eroded.
So, what is in store for those of us who also abhor violence and the Great Oil Grab?
As usual, we will follow the American lead.
