Capitol Hill Blue: Bush's Erratic Behavior Worries White House Aides

Capitol Hill Blue: Bush's Erratic Behavior Worries White House Aides:

"Tenet wanted to quit last year but the President got his back up and wouldn't hear of it,' says an aide. 'That would have been the opportune time to make a change, not in the middle of an election campaign but when the director challenged the President during the meeting Wednesday, the President cut him off by saying 'that's it George. I cannot abide disloyalty. I want your resignation and I want it now.'
Tenet was allowed to resign 'voluntarily' and Bush informed his shocked staff of the decision Thursday morning. One aide says the President actually described the decision as 'God's will.'

God may also be the reason Attorney General John Ashcroft, the administrations lightning rod because of his questionable actions that critics argue threatens freedoms granted by the Constitution, remains part of the power elite. West Wing staffers call Bush and Ashcroft "the Blues Brothers because theyre on a mission from God."
"The Attorney General is tight with the President because of religion,". says one aide. "They both believe any action is justifiable in the name of God."
But the President who says he rules at the behest of God can also tongue-lash those he perceives as disloyal, calling them "F...ing A..holes" in front of other staff, berating one cabinet official in front of others and labeling anyone who disagrees with him "unpatriotic"or "anti-American."
"The mood here is that were under siege, theres no doubt about it," says one troubled aide who admits he is looking for work elsewhere. "In this administration, you dont have to wear a turban or speak Farsi to be an enemy of the United States. All you have to do is disagree with the President."

Prominent DC Shrink Diagnoses Bush to be a Paranoid, Sadistic Meglomaniac

My initial reaction to this article is that it sounds sound and reasonable but can we really support Kerry? The drinking, torturing animals, and the contempt for his opponents was a tip off for me. If you want to read a very scary book on Bush read Christopher Anderson's George and Laura. It is a Pro-Bush puff book but you can see what Dr. Frank is talking about all through the book. JBOC

A new book by a prominent Washington psychoanalyst says President George W. Bush is a 'paranoid meglomaniac' as well as a sadist and 'untreated alcoholic.' The doctor's analysis appears to confirm earlier reports the President may be emotionally unstable.

Dr. Justin Frank, writing in Bush on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President, also says the President has a ''lifelong streak of sadism, ranging from childhood pranks (using firecrackers to explode frogs) to insulting journalists, gloating over state executions ... [and] pumping his fist gleefully before the bombing of Baghdad.'

Even worse, Dr. Frank concludes, the President's years of heavy drinking ''may have affected his brain function - and his decision to quit drinking without the help of a 12-step program [puts] him at far higher risk of relapse.'

Dr. Frank's revelations comes on the heels of last week's Capitol Hill Blue exclusive that revealed increasing concern by White House aides over Bush's emotional stability.

Aides, who spoke only on condition that their names be withheld, told stories of wide mood swings by the President who would go from quoting the Bible one minute to obscenity-filled outbursts the next.
Bush shows an inability to grieve - dating back to age 7, when his sister died. 'The family's reaction - no funeral and no mourning - set in motion his life-long pattern of turning away from pain [and hiding] behind antic behavior,' says Frank, who says Bush may suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Jun 26, 2004, 21:26

Information Minister Ali Younesi said here Friday evening that Iran is the safest country in the world, IRNA reported.

Addressing a ceremony commemorating martyrs of a bomb explosion on Tir 7 (June 28, 1981), he said such incidents in the past happened because of the country's deficient information system. Today, the information ministry permeates all affairs of the country, he emphasized.

Elsewhere in his speech, Younesi commented on the conspiracies that have been hatched by enemies of Islam to destroy the Islamic Revolution and the Islamic Republic that arose after its victory in 1979. He also paid tribute to the 73 Iranian officials who were martyred in a bomb blast on June 28, 1981.

On that day, the late chief justice Ayatollah Mohammad Hussein Beheshti and 72 other top government officials were martyred in a bomb blast at the headquarters of the former Islamic Republic Party, the bomb later found to have been planted by the terrorist Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO). "

"TEHRAN, June 25 (AFP) - Iran's foreign minister has called his Canadian counterpart with a renewed complaint over the acquittal in British Columbia of a policeman who shot and killed an Iranian-Canadian teenager last year, the official news agency IRNA reported.

'Unfortunately the Canadian government, which claims to support human rights, gave no information on the case to the family of Kevyan Tabesh and the Iranian government, and violated citizenship rights,' Kamal Kharazi was quoted as telling Bill Graham in a phone conversation.

'The Iranian government will follow up the case to restore the rights of Tabesh,' Kharazi warned, without elaborating.The police in British Columbia conducted an investigation that concluded earlier this month that the policeman surprised Tabesh, 18, as he was
vandalizing a car in Port Moody, a suburb of Vancouver, on July 14, 2003."
