Dubya: hypocrite (again)

2005-02-20 22:35:34.85106+00 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that it's on tape that G.W. Bush admits to smoking marijuana:

In the tape, Bush mocks former Vice President Al Gore -- who fought him for the presidency in 2000 -- for admitting he smoked marijuana.

On the other hand, it's nothing we didn't already know.

I've said it before: I'd believe a candidate if he said "Did it. (Didn't) Liked It. Stopped before I started running for Prez." - Of course, we have no problem is he's a cigar/cigarette smoker, drinks alcohol.. But if he's tried a spliff.. even a whiff.. we'll be pissed. Grow Up American! Get Real!

I'm more concerned with whatever kind of anti-social freak could possible live during the 60s and 70s and NOT smoke marijuana. You'd have to have some serious issues.

In a potentially much larger hypocrisy, George tells US that he has no intention to attack Iran. And our complicit mainstream media would have you believe the same. Others beg to differ:


"Defense Department civilians, under the leadership of Douglas Feith, have been working with Israeli planners and consultants to develop and refine potential nuclear, chemical-weapons, and missile targets inside Iran. . . . Strategists at the headquarters of the U.S. Central Command, in Tampa, Florida, have been asked to revise the military's war plan, providing for a maximum ground and air invasion of Iran. . . . The hawks in the Administration believe that it will soon become clear that the Europeans' negotiated approach [to Iran] cannot succeed, and that at that time the Administration will act."

Douglas Feith recently resigned his "official" political position in the Bush regime to pursue opportunities in the private sector. Yeah, right. Just like Richard Perle is a devoted pacifist. The "special interests" in Washington couldn't be more crystallized at the moment, even if they are camouflaged in the private sector.

Oh, and for anyone who remembers, Douglas Feith, through the specially created "Office of Special Plans," is the single person on the entire planet most responsible for the "sexing up" of the pre-war "intelligence" on Iraq:



He's at it again, this time with Iran. Remember that name. Many men, women and children have died and have had their lives utterly destroyed because of Feith. And more innocent people will die because of HIM:

It seems Feith has become the designated Whipping Boy within the neocon camp for some reason. Maybe because they feel he is most expendable. Perle is uglier. And there are many more of just the same ilk.
