The Many Lies of George Bush

Yesterday, Congress criticized the Pentagon.

Bush immediately rose on his hind quarters and said that it was not the job of Congress to tell the military what to do; it was the job of the military to tell politicians what we should be doing in a war.

That's a remarkable expression coming from the one president, who more than any other in history, willfully ignored military advice before and during the entire Iraq campaign.

Donald Rumsfeld ran the Iraq debacle. Generals were practically yelling at him from the beginning and he repeatedly threw them out of the room.

Make no mistake. Everything about this disaster is and has been and will be political in the tiniest, smallest, most partisan and selfish sense of the word.
