It's been a while since I had anything to say about Dubya. But someone sent me this picture and said it was his general greeting to the South Americans. I have no idea if there is any truth in this at all. However, I am getting sick of the lack of veracity in the Valerie Plame exposure. (That wasn't meant to be a pun, but there you are.) (Ha-Ed.)
The thinking American public believes, now, that the order originated in the office of the Vice President. There seems to be a lot of evidence (maybe not good enough for a law court) indicating that it did. In any case, putting an agent's life at risk unnecessarily, by anyone, has to be a form of treason. Perhaps we should consider it as done deliberately in order to reach another conclusion. Not that our government would do that. At least not without good reasons. What reasons? Perhaps to cover up something else that we shouldn't speak of in public? Maybe to direct our attention away from some issue? Like the obscene profits the Military/Industrial Complex is making? Or the fact that Health Care is getting further and further out of reach of many homes? Or that our Federal Comptroller is warning that we are on the edge of the worst depression this country has ever seen? Maybe it's to direct our attention away from the lack of a real "git'erdone" general directing this war? Or that the EPA hasn't really done anything to keep us in control of global warming for many, many years? There are many, many other reasons available to those of us who wish to find them. It is just the matter of tying them all together. Of showing the connections. And I don't mean the crappola of writers inventing conspiracies to suit their own ends. The more I hear of the Plame affair, the more I wonder if Terry Tamminen shouldn't run for the office of President. I wonder how he'd handle it?
