While reading this morning I was in shock and awe about how many of the worlds problems could be laid at the door of George W. Bush.
Lets start with Syria,
Calling the report "fabricated", Russian policymaker Alexei Pushkov said:
"Information about the usage of chemical weapons by Assad is fabricated
in the same way as the lie about [Saddam] Hussein's weapons of mass
destruction [in Iraq]." Nice.
Bush admin's Iraq WMD claims hang over Syria chemical weapons debate - U.S. News
Russia has been supporting
the Assad regime for decades, but the fact that they can say something
like this and it's true, speaks volumes, volumes about Bush and the damage he's done to this country.
(Reuters) - Attacks across
Iraq targeting mainly Shi'ite Muslims killed at least 30 people on
Sunday, police and medics said, intensifying fears of a descent into
all-out sectarian war.
Ten years after the U.S.-led
invasion that toppled Sunni leader Saddam Hussein, a stable
power-sharing compromise between Iraq's Sunni, Shi'ite and ethnic
Kurdish factions is still elusive and violence is on the rise. Gee Whiz, how did that happen?
A hunger strike has been going on for 3 months, in Guantanamo Bay. But really, who cares?
How about the NSA scandal?
Mike McConnell, (Gosh, another McConnell? Who knew?) who once led the National Security Agency, is now the
chief architect of Booz Allen’s cyberstrategy — and among the executives
facing tough questions after a data leak.
The first thing I thought of when I saw this was how this guy was related to the Bush Administration?
"His civilian career includes serving as the United States Director of National Intelligence from 20 February 2007 to 27 January 2009 during the Bush administration"
It's no secret that the Carlyle Group owns Booz Allen. Where, oh where, have I heard about The Carlyle Group?
In Fahrenheit 911, Moore makes nine allegations concerning the
Carlyle Group, including: That the Bin Laden and Bush families were both
connected to the Group; that following the attacks on September 11, the
bin Laden family’s investments in the Carlyle Group became an
embarrassment to the Carlyle Group and the family was forced to
liquidate their assets with the firm.* Oh that was such a long time ago. Who cares about that?
Carlyle continued to make large investments into 2007 as the buyout
market reached its peak. In June 2007, Carlyle agrees to acquire HD Supply for $10.3 billion, along with Bain Capital. Wasn't Romney involved with that?
Why is it that National Security is farmed out to hedge fund pirates? Why is that? Shouldn't that be handled by the government? So we hand over intelligence to those who are in the financial industry, who need to wheel and deal on the basis of new information, so they can HEDGE their bets? Really?
While all of us continue to live under more and more scrutiny, the criminal who laid the United States so low, is still free. While CEO's and stockholders rape this country, those in need can go without.
$20.5 billion in food stamp cut, Boehner decides to support farm bill | The Daily Caller
That's right, more corporate welfare for Big AG, but go ahead and cut food stamps for the millions left behind in the "Great Recession," a recession that started under the Bush Administration and lingers to this day.
It's business as usual in the U.S.
