You Don't Know the History of Cooking Oil. Tom Does.

Cruise Blasted by 9/11 Firefighters

HOLLYWOOD - Outspoken actor Tom Cruise has been criticized by
firefighters suffering the effects of smoke inhalation from the World
Trade Center terrorist attacks for his controversial views on their
treatment.

The Scientology devotee has urged emergency services victims to give
up their medication and inhalers as part of a 'purification rundown,’
which favors sauna sessions, ingestion of cooking oil and large doses
of niacin as cures instead.

As co-founder of the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project,
Cruise has also supported a new Scientology clinic preaching these
remedies near the Ground Zero site.

But the unorthodox therapy has been slammed as ridiculous and
potentially harmful by members of the medical profession, as well as
sufferers themselves.

Deputy Fire Commissioner Frank Gribbon tells gossip site PageSix.com,
"If our doctors are prescribing medication, and they (Scientologists)
are saying 'don't take it,' that's a problem for us."

Bush Finally Faces Reality, Sort of

Well, it took four years, but Bush finally admits he took us to war
based on faulty intelligence.

``It is true that much of the intelligence turned out to be wrong,''
Bush said today in the final speech in a series intended to outline his
Iraq strategy. ``Given Saddam's history and the lessons of September
the 11th, my decision to remove Saddam Hussein was the right
decision.''

***

``I am responsible for the decision to go into Iraq,'' the president
said at the Woodrow Wilson International Center in Washington. ``I'm
also responsible for fixing what went wrong by reforming our
intelligence capabilities, and we're doing just that.''

Surprised that Rove let him fess up.
But maybe Rove is preoccupied with other things. Word is Fitzgerald is
back before the grand jury today.
