Lies deception, cover-up; the bush legacy

(suburban Carson City/Reno NV area paper)

"The New York Times has reported that they were informed by the Pentagon that George W. Bush's military records covering the time he spent in the Air National Guard were destroyed accidentally during a routine transfer of files. I don't believe that for one millisecond.


That news was dwarfed by the report from the Senate Select Committee on Intelli-gence. I think they could have reduced the report to one line: "In regards to intelligence, this President doesn't have any."

It is perfectly clear that President Bush had no proof of weapons of mass destruction until he pressured the CIA to manufacture some. It is clear that the President and Vice President told an outright lie when they said there was a connection between Iraq and al Qaeda.


Thus, the American people were deceived about the threat from Iraq and many young men and women marched off to their deaths and continue to do so on the basis of deliberately flawed intelligence. It's down right criminal if you ask me.


Surely after the exposure of the outright lies, deception and cover-up by this administration, the votes for George W. Bush won't be there in November."

Tell us what you really think, Glen!

1. My kind of editorial writer: he uses "bull" and "sweet bippy."
Also check out a LTTE in response to a previous McAdoo column. The letter apparently was written by Bob Boudelang's better educated but no less bombastic cousin (clues: black helicopters, the French, and high taxes).
