15. Almost seven years, and they're still making it up as they go along.
The problem with this case is that if I'm right about it, nobody wants to tell the truth because the anthrax mailings themselves were a strong message about that subject: tell the truth and the Bush Administration will kill you. The Valerie Plame Wilson burning was the same damned thing--lives were certainly endangered if not lost--but they at least managed to pin that one on a good Nazi who won't talk. Who else was set up as warnings to others? Pat Tillman? David Kelly?

Frankly, while I'm glad to see the attempted injustice unravel before our eyes, it also frightens me. We're not going to get our country back if these people won't willingly leave. They're evil enough to murder, steal elections, start wars on false pretenses, and who knows what else, but they're also stupid enough to fuck up every damned snow job they've tried to lay on us.

Somehow, we've got to navigate a high-profile reformist candidate to victory without the obvious happening to him, then get these gangsters to walk away from everything they've always wanted, and then we have to go back out there and attempt to try and convict literally hundreds of Bush Administration criminals so that they never have the chance to come back. And all they have to do is start murdering people again to keep their jobs, their loot, and their power.

I know we can do it, somehow. But hell if I know how we're going to pull it off.
