ABC Controversy: WAKE UP People!

Wake up people. This is all an attempt to deflect criticism away from Bush's own record. Read the August 6th 2001 PDB. Read how it warned "bin Laden determined to attack inside the United States." Read how it says "FBI information...indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijcaking." Watch Clarke and Tenet's 9/11 Commission testimony. Better yet, watch Secretary Rice's testimony. The negligence is astounding.

While we bicker about whether or not the scenes are bullshit or whether ABC has the "right" to air it, Karl Rove is whistling all the way to the ballot boxes.

Why was the Kerry "swift-boating" so successful? Every military document supported Kerrys version of the events and SBVT were constantly changing their stories. In other words, it was obvious to any clear-thinking person that it was a partisan attack. Nevertheless, Karl Rove was able to paint Kerry, who fought bravely in Vietnam and even won medals, as a coward, and Bush, who went AWOL from the National Guard, as some sort of resolute warrior. So the guy who steps up to fight is weak whereas the guy who couldn't fulfill his obligations in the National Guard -- where he would never see enemy fire -- is strong?

This reminds me of a quote from a great historian, philosopher and war hero:

"There's an old saying in Tennessee. I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee, that says: "Fool me once..." [pause] "... shame on...". [pause] "Shame on you..." [pause] "If fooled, you can't get fooled again."

Sadist part is Dan Rather is defending the Bushelofshit gang,on talk shows. dan was a fall guy and he played his part very well. Odd thing,he shared ownership of a 2500 acre range,with Rumdrunkfeld.
ABC is a ruse folks and if that don't get votes,how about some more anthrax or ricin for a snack,provided free by Bushlabs.
