Scandal: Did Expatriate & SoldierVote COUNT?

U.S. CitiZeNs; ON The FrontLines Of Int. Relations- DID Expat.
& SoldierVote get Left Behind?
A Pivotal, Hotly contested 'election of a lifetime' spurring
Worldwide interest saw OverSeas Voters registration increase
fourfold as these Americans are the Country's spokespeople, and
best face forward. Recalcitrant insistence on conflict creating
perpetual war, was on the table for We Decide, you saw the
BillBoards reminding US whose Will was to be measured- The People's! RiP van
Winkle Voters came out of the woodwork, contributing herculean
volunteer efforts & enthusiasm were unprecendented and
encouraging. NEVER in U.S. Presidential politics have MASSIVE
crowds shown up to endorse an incumbent. But to throw out, Reject
malfeasence and Get Rid of incompetence! The 51st state, as
American's abroad were called
because of it's swing potential, an estimated 4million civilians
and 500,000 military, of course many in dubious, difficult,
dangerous and DeaDly situations, it's numbers giving it an impact
larger than the 24 smallest states. Participation was cool this
many expressing eager desire to voice their vote. Also though, a
haunting anxiety that the systemic flaws characteristic of
confusing procedures and snafus investigated by the GAO in previous
efforts at smooth and fair election process run by a mosaic of federal
& state agencies would DisCount NOT AcCount accurately the absentee
Vote. Expatriates tend heavily liberal, outnumber military
significantly and the soldiers
especially rank and file were said to be more mixed, varied not so
monolothic, or predictable as usually seen said veterans of multiple
elections. However, the pentagon, which for some reason took over
from the state department, the handling of ballots, was criticized
for registration websites not working, unequal mishandling of the
CivilianVote, absentee ballots mailed late in 8 of 15 swing states,
ballots hard to get, too many hoops to jump through and doubts
whether they would get back in time, count and be honored fairly as
a private firm owned by a republican donor and of the reelection
team, was handling ballots historically counted at local levels.
Typically 8% of absentee votes are discarded, with Bush possibly
winning the popular vote by 2-3%, HOW assured at Legit can we be?
when you also ADD the percents lost of provisionals thrown out, the
undervotes thrown out, unequal distribution of election hardware,
not random in the stunting of turnout toward one of the choices,
including GAINS from unreal certification of results with more
votes than voters, when the long lines were in the democratic
precints!. Registration going up, up, UP Machines going DOWN, down,
down, DOH! What level of fraud is sufficient to BeSmirch
Confidence? Reports below abound of systemic pre-election
suppression and NOW BlackOut and silence of OverSeas results are
Signs of a Sinister Scandal. These OverSeas American's are ambassadors, this
vote should not be treated cavalierly but be traceable, honored and
COUNTED, foreigners, frontlines in someone elses HomeLand, they
REALLY understand Vote or Die. I asked my roomate for a historical
quote which could speak to this unseemly realization, scenario
we've allowed to happen? She said there is NONE, because it has
never happened before. So I say, an UNprecendented, UNheard of,
UNfair, UNacceptable, UNnatural Results can only be Remedied,
Adjudicated, Balanced by SomeThing that hasn't happened before a
NewVote to Ameliorate this WaterShed MoMent! POST AS COMMENTS WHAT
OVERSEAS VOTE COUNTS. NO SoldiersVote Left Behind.

Victims of Afghan War Remain in Limbo

Exactly 3 years ago, civilian casualties were mounting in Afghanistan and prisoners were drugged, hooded and dragged in chains to Guantanamo naval base.Alberto Gonzales, recently nominated by George Bush to replace John Ashcroft, established a legal argument that Guantanamo would be outside of any legal jurisdiction.

Prisoners still languish there, regardless of their innocence or guilt they have become pawns in a test of a presidential power.
