Revisionist History

Jon Gold 12/29/2008 Have you heard? George W. Bush's administration is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Rawstory just released a report that says:
Bush wants to be seen as a "liberator of millions." Rove insists that "history will be kind" to his former boss. And Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is sure that "this generation" will thank George W. Bush.
The one little piece of spin that we are hearing A LOT of is that this administration has kept us safe for seven years after the 9/11 attacks. Laura Bush recently said it. Dick Cheney said, "we've now gone seven and a half years without another attack." I wonder which actions in particular by this administration have kept us safe. Was it the war in Afghanistan? Maybe it was the war in Iraq. I wonder if using the States Secrets Privilege to end lawsuits helped. Maybe the meeting the Downing Street Memos were based on kept us safe. How did Jack Abramoff help out? How did outing a covert CIA officer keep us safe? Maybe the thought of using an American Spyplane painted in U.N. colors to lure Iraq into war kept us safe. The torturing, well, maybe that helped. Clearly it's our loss of civil liberties that has kept us safe. Or, maybe it was the Military Tribunals. There are so many actions, it's just too hard to pick out the one that has kept us safe. A long time ago when I would have debates with Bush supporters regarding 9/11, I would hear over and over again that Clinton was responsible for 9/11. I constantly had to remind them that the President of the United States takes responsibility for their office on the day of inauguration. Not nine months and 12 days later (give or take). Bush has kept us safe since 9/11? Ok, but he and his friends certainly didn't do that ON 9/11. Personally, I think the reason we haven't been attacked since 9/11 (unless you count the Anthrax Attacks that were launched from a United States facility as a "terrorist attack") is because pulling off two attacks against your own people during one Presidency is just too risky to do without people getting wise on a massive scale. I guess that makes me a crazy Conspiracy Theorist. At least I know bullshit when I hear it.
