I know that the government regularly lies to the American people, and it seems that everything I have been reading recently is reinforcing that belief. The government also lies to itself, and anyone who tells the president that his policies are wrong or that a strategy is not working is likely to lose his/her job. King George and his cronies are dangerously mad with power.
Yesterday Doug Thompson wrote in Capitol Hill Blue that “sources who said they were current and retired intelligence pros from the CIA, NSA, FBI and the military” had contacted Capitol Hill Blue to angrily dispute the president’s story. Bush is “full of shit,” reads one of the quotes.
Apparently, the “intelligence” that the president had chosen to share with the American people had been garnered from a discredited informant. Not coincidentally, most of the “intelligence” that gave the government reason to invade
Intelligence pros say much of the information used by Bush in an attempt to justify his increased spying on Americans by the National Security Agency, trampling of civil rights under the USA Patriot Act, and massive buildup of the Department of Homeland Security, now the nation’s largest federal bureaucracy, was “worthless intel that was discarded long ago.”
