As our MSNBC hero-anchor Keith Olbermann is fond of saying, "Oh no, here we go again ..."
A blistering, top-of-the-program, red-hot Special Comment tonight on 'Countdown with Keith Olbermann'.
The criminal lack of planning for the war — the total “jump-off-a-bridge-and-hope-you-can-fly” tone to the failure to anticipate what would follow the deposing of Saddam Hussein — that had nothing to do with the chaos in which Iraq has been enveloped. It isn’t Mr. Bush’s fault.The Bush Grindhouse is at it again.
The utter, blinkered idiocy of “staying the course,” of sending Americans to Iraq and sending them a second time, and a third and a fourth, until they get killed or maimed — the utter de-prioritization of human life, simply so a politician can avoid having to admit a mistake — that had nothing to do with the tens of thousand individual tragedies darkening the lives of American families, forever. It isn’t Mr. Bush’s fault.
Perhaps a light bulb went off over someone's head that, "Hey, the latest NIE Report kinda blows our shit right outta the water".
Or, just in case General David Petreaus is balking - early - at becoming the scapegoat, they gotta work their motto: The Bucks Stop Here - But The Blame Goes Somewhere Else
They trotted out a B-Team player (perhaps Fran Townsend is still trying to figure out if there is a country named Iraq, or not), Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Eric Edelman to send Senator, and 2008 Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton a "You're either with us or against us" letter, responding to a letter she sent asking about a plan for troop withdrawals.
“Premature and public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq,” Edelman writes, “reinforces enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies in Iraq, much as we are perceived to have done in Vietnam, Lebanon and Somalia.”Haven't they played this song before?
Edelman adds: “Such talk understandably unnerves the very same Iraqi allies we are asking to assume enormous personal risks.”
Defeatocrats ... Cut-and-Run... Giving Aid and Comfort To The Enemy ...
Geeish ... Maybe Karl Rove needs to hit summer school and hone-up on his math skills.
Or get "the Homeland guy" to have some better churnings in his gut.
But what was Senator Clinton thinking? That these guys have -or had - a plan?
They can lie, obfuscate, cook intelligence, smear, expose covert CIA agents, not take care of the injured, all in the name of their invasion and occupation of Iraq (This war has been brought to you by the PNAC ... The PNAC - Power Over People ... We Kill The Good Things In Life) and you there, Missy, shouldn't be asking any questions about it.
Olbermann gives The Commander Guy a schooling on scapegoats and role models, towel-snapping Bush's ass every step of the way, and wrapping up with;
This, sir, is your war.
Sen. Clinton has reinforced enemy propaganda? Made it impossible for you to get your ego-driven, blood-steeped win in Iraq?
Then take it into your own hands, Mr. Bush.
Go to Baghdad now and fulfill, finally, your military service obligations.
Go there and fight, your war. Yourself.
