Shame, Shame, Shame
I have a major decision to make. I just read this article written by Joseph L. Galloway for Knight-Ridder Newspapers. Here's an excerpt to illustrate the tone (bolds mine)|
Giving this article some thought, I have to reach the conclusion that Mr. Galloway is ignorant and misinformed of the facts, or that he has been in seclusion for the past year, or that he's a lying bastard with an axe to grind. I choose...
Unless he considers the Iraqi elections as the only criteria for good, he's incorrect. Much good news has come out of Iraq since then. True, terrorist bombings decreased, and have spiked again this past month, and true, many of our finest (and many, many Iraqis) have given their lives. President Bush is 'staying the course'. Does Dick Cheney believe that Saddam Hussein was in cahoots with bin Laden, or has he indicated that belief? Nope. Nuclear/Chemical weapons? According to every major intelligence agency at the time, he was. We know differently now, but you don't judge performance then on information now. At least a sensible person doesn't. Rumsfeld's ideas are his alone, and crackpot, and have broken both the Army and the Marines? Sorry, you can add IDIOT to my assessment above.
Knight-Ridder Newspapers syndication is carried in a LOT of small to mid-sized papers, and will be read by a LOT of normal, patriotic Americans who, by choice or by lot, will have no other access to the truth. For injecting these lies and half-truths into the American conversation... SHAME on them!
