I Know You Are, But What Am I?

The soap opera continues. As I pointed out yesterday, there is some disagreement between the 9/11 Commission and President Bush over whether or not Iraq had ties to al Qaeda. Bush says yes, the commission says no. Now Bush is arguing.

I can't understand what would make him think that anyone would believe him. His track record on being correct about Iraq is not a pretty one. On top of all of this the L.A. Times is reporting that our intelligence on Iraq was a complete failure from the beginning.

In addition, we are learning about Iraqi prisoners being held in secret and hidden from the International Red Cross. Another direct violation of the Geneva Convention and another indication of this administration's dishonesty.

At some point, I would hope that someone would develop a conscience and admit failure. The White House lied to bring this country to war and has been covering it up ever since. We are desperately searching for something to justify ourselves and have made matters worse in the process. It's like when you were a kid and lied to your parents about how the lamp got broken and then had to cover the lie with more and more lies.

The hole's getting deeper around this administration and they just keep digging.
