Did GW* visit the Dungeon?
Honestly, all the kings men have visited the Dungeon.

When GW* went over last Thanksgiving, did he get a peek, too?

3. Have a link?
Do you have any proof? What I remember is that the press never even saw him on Air Force One.

2. He not only visited "the dungeon," in my opinion,
Edited on Tue May-25-04 09:26 AM by lebkuchen
he also prevented the top US medical army officers, Command Sgt. Maj. Sandra K. Townsend and Army Surgeon General Lt. Gen. James B. Peake, from entering Iraq during his visit to Baghdad Airport during Thanksgiving, I believe because he was going to The Dungeon.

Three days after his visit, 61 of our troops were injured in a suicide bombing at a US base entrance in Mosul, and our top military medical officers had no idea of hospital manning levels because they couldn't get clearance to enter Iraq. Why not? I think it was because the *ies didn't want them clued in to "the dungeon." Here's a cut and paste from an archived post. Unfortunately, the Stripes URL for the Stripes article is no longer valid. The article, War leaves little relief in sight for taxed medical troops, was dated Dec. 6, 2003.

<snip>

Command Sgt. Maj. Sandra K. Townsend spoke with medical soldiers and with wounded troops Thursday at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center.

What theyre saying is they need more people, Townsend said of medical troops during an interview Thursday.

<snip>

Hospitals such as Landstuhl already are at 80 percent manning and must be bolstered with Reserve and National Guard troops to do their wartime mission, she said.

The two leaders were unable to visit medical troops in Iraq, however, because President Bushs visit made it difficult to get clearance, she said.

6. I thought you were all talking about the Skull & Boner dungeon
We know that GW Bush. GHW Bush, and Nazi-lover Grampy Prescott Bush were all regulars at that dungeon.

In the future, please be clear about which torture dungeons you mean. A guy needs a program -- or to be programmed -- to keep them straight.

7. Just trying to keep current
Now that you mention it, the Skull & Bones Museum of Horror does fit nicely into this new and improved version of skull duggery, eh?
