Three stories the MSM will bury with all the Boston Convention fluff
1. The Berger story: Via DynamoBuzz,
In other words, according to the commission report, Mr. Berger was presented with plans to take action against the threat of Al Qaeda four separate times — Spring 1998, June 1999, December 1999, and August 2000. Each time, Mr. Berger was an obstacle to action. Had he been a little less reluctant to act, a little more open to taking pre-emptive action, maybe the 2,973 killed in the September 11, 2001, attacks would be alive today
It seems that Berger was removing documents that had his own handwriting on the margins.

Central bank tracks foreign deposits
(Al-Mutamar) – An anonymous source in the Central Bank of Iraq said a number of countries, including Lebanon, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, and France, hid more than $10 billion. The source added they were sure of these sums, according to hard evidence related to the accounts of the oil-for-food programme. He pointed that the funds are deposited under names of people close to the former regime or under fake names. Most of the funds are in Lebanon and Jordan and are the result of corruption cases in the oil-for-food memorandum of understanding as well as agreements signed between Iraq and other countries. The Central Bank has taken legal action to restore the funds according to the Security Council resolution 1483 which states that all Iraqi funds abroad be deposited in the Iraqi Development Fund.
“Engineering group Weir today said it had uncovered evidence of irregular payments in relation to its work for the oil-for-food programme in Iraq.
Weir said an internal review has found that £4.2 million was paid to a local agent in 2000 as part of work undertaken under the United Nations-run programme”
3. Kerry’s use of campaign funds to pay a personal loan: A friend emailed me this link, Kerry Repays Personal Loan to Campaign
Using campaign funds, Sen. John Kerry has repaid a $6.4 million personal loan that the Democratic presidential candidate used to keep his campaign afloat last winter.
I bet $5 none of these are going to be on the front page of a major newspaper any time soon.
