Ah, my mind is so eased now that George has gone to Iraq for 5 hours to find out what’s really going on in a tiny part of the 4 square mile Green Zone. You know, that’s where the new government lives and works and enjoys regular water and electricity and security, security, security. I wonder how easy it was to fit the 3,500 Bush guards in this zone?
Scott Johnson wrote in Newsweek: “One recent night at a saloon called The Bunker, a resident contractor asked, ‘So, what's going on out there in Iraq anyway?’ He hadn't left the Green Zone in six months. ‘It's like Plato's republic in here, all of these well-meaning, smart people who want to do the right thing,’ says one security contractor and Green Zone regular. ‘But they never leave here and they have no idea what's happening in the country they're supposed to be building. It's totally absurd.’ “
But gosh, if we hadn’t kept on we wouldn’t have gotten Zawqari. That's what this administration tells us. In truth, wasn’t this about the 20th time we “got Zawqari?” And this one won’t make any more difference than the last 20 did.
Try going outside of the Green Zone once in a while, even if it’s only on the net because you surely won’t see it on evening news. There are even pictures: http://www.alternet.org/waroniraq/37572/
If you don’t know by now this this is the most corrupt administration and congress ever, then steering you to a little truth won’t make any difference. There is overwhelming proof that this government has lied to and cheated the American people over and over again while systematically destroying rights which we have taken for granted.
"There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." —President George W. Bush.
Well, it’s no longer possible to count the times you’ve been fooled even if you use all of your fingers and toes.
