Bush's New PR Offensive: Old Lies Die Hard!Quicklink submitted By Len Hart Permalink
|Bush has thrown down the gauntlet yet again and congress continues to let him get away with it. Once again, the "rule of law" takes a beating. Bush repeats a fairy tale about Iraq and cites it as justification for his thumbing his nose at the Constitution. This is circular, delusional thinking at its most egregious.
The reality in Iraq is a stark contrast that Bush never talks about this. Numerous writers in Iraq describe a "...a country convulsed by fear" where sectarian killings are commonplace. The scale of violence is largely unseen. It is most certainly undescribed or referenced by Bush! In a nation still largely without lights or running water civilians flee old neighborhoods desperately seeker safer ground, IF it can be found. Death squads roam the streets.
