Imperato for President Recognizes Bush/Afghan for Finally Pointing out the PoppyWest Palm Beach, FL – February 15, 2007 – One year after Daniel Imperato's first remarks regarding the subject, US President George W. Bush officially acknowledged the presence of the opium poppy as the key to the Taliban resurgence in Afghanistan.
Bush stated that "the United States and our allies will help President Karzai reverse the increase in poppy cultivation that is aiding the Taliban… The Taliban uses drug money to buy weapons -- they benefit from this cultivation -- and they pay Afghans to take up arms against the government."
On commenting on the poppy issue, Bush stated, "It's important, and we're going to stay focused on the poppy issue."
What President Bush failed to mention is that Daniel Imperato pointed out this situation going back to his January 5, 2006 press release "Imperato on Bin Laden, Afghanistan, and The Poppy."
During that release, Imperato stated, "Mark my words once again, that the greatest threat is for al-Qaeda to regain its financial strength, which is directly related to Uncle Poppy. I have addressed this situation in the past, and I stand up for the United States and its people to demand immediate action pertaining to the war chest of Osama Bin Laden's poppy fields."
Imperato was further validated by a September 2006 report from the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime, and its Chief Antonio Maria Costa, and by the subsequent New York Times article, (Gall, Carlotta. " Afghanistan's opium harvest at record levels" New York Times. September 3, 2006.)
Still, the Bush administration provided no action, other than to state that Afghanistan was in danger of becoming a full-fledged "narcotics-state".
At the time, the UN reported that 92% of the world's opium was coming from Afghanistan.
After today's comments by President Bush, Imperato stated the following: "I stand out to today to tell the American people that I had stated that the first mission concerning the invasion of Afghanistan should have been breaking the bank and cleaning out the poppy fields. I congratulate Bush on finally listening to and adhering to my strategy. The only problem is that it's too late. The poppy has been rebuilt. The Taliban is strong again and Al-Qaeda is in full operation."
After the heels of Bush's responses to security in East Africa, and Latin American relations, Imperato asked the American people to see that his knowledge of the world qualifies him to make important decisions for our country.
"I ask the American people to look at the facts and the solutions. I am qualified to prepare America for its future stance on the Middle East , and global policy, because of my knowledge of the world and 30 years experience. I have been able to study the business, religious, and political aspects of the governments and the people of these countries. I bring a very unique experience to the table, and hope to have the opportunity to be put into a debate forum, to discuss the facts and solutions to America's current problems, and to plan what we need to do now, in order to protect us from tomorrow's dangers."
Imperato concluded his remarks with the following: "When I become president in 2008, I will be the first independent president of the USA . I fully believe this is needed, and it's the right time to elect an independent. Please reflect to the facts, and compare my requests for policy back sometime ago, and then look at all of the politicians that are running in 2008. I will leave it to the people of the USA to make a decision. Who was on the ball when it came to these issues? Who spoke up about them? And whose solutions are finally becoming a partial solution of our president? Thank God Bush is finally listening and I thank the American people for allowing me the opportunity to be their servant."

Did Dick Cheney Hypnotize George W. Bush?
Is the enormous influence Dick Cheney wields over the president of the United States evidence of Cheney having put Bush into a hypnotic trance? No. That bewildered look of George W. and his fractured syntax has nothing to do with hypnotism. That’s because hypnosis can’t make you do something you don’t want to. So Bush’s war-mongering, acceptance of torture and spying on his own citizens may have been suggested by Cheney but
