Voice of the White House November 7, 2005
TBR News.org – November 7, 2005
“The media has reported a week ago that 2,000 U.S. military personnel had been killed since 2003 in Iraq and Afghanistan. Actually, the persistent rumors are that the actual toll is much higher. Around the Monkey Palace, no one gives a flying f--- about this matter. They are too intent on saving their jobs or protecting Bush and Cheney for the same reason.
The dead and mangled are only a footnote to history and one the White House staff doesn’t give a damn about. The Iraqi resistance is well aware of the impact that the growing death tolls can and do have on the American public and like the Viet Cong, they are killing more and more men in more and more sophisticated ways (aided and abetted by outside sources) so as to pressure Bush to withdraw.
Bush, like Johnson, can never admit he was wrong so the deaths tolls will grow and grow, and be fudged, until finally the dam breaks and the resulting flood does terrible damage.
The entire claque that runs things here is ideologically and morally corrupt and this corruption is manifest in the wholesale thievery of FEMA (Brown the Wonderful is still on the FEMA payroll and there is as much chance of his being axed as there is of Ken Lay of Enron being tried…at least as long as George Bush is President.) They both know too much to pushed into a corner and the great fear here is that Libby will open up and tell what he knows about Cheney and, to a lesser degree, Bush himself.
Believe me, this is the most morally and fiscally corrupt American Presidency since U.S. Grant’s time. And in that case, the corruption did not touch the President but in this case, he is part and parcel of the lying and money-grubbing.“
