More fun from nonviolence.org:
Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Jack Reed (D-RI) made plans to go to Afghanistan (to eat Thanksgiving dinner with some of the troops) on a trip that was made public well in advance. Granted, Sen. Reed once served as an Army paratrooper, but Sen. Clinton obviously has no military experience. Sen. Reed even opposed Bush’s military action in Iraq, and he organized the trip.
Why is it that two senators on the Armed Services committee can openly fly into two of the most dangerous U.S. colonies in the world, with the whole world knowing about it, and the so-called commander-in-chief of the U.S. has to lie to the already complicit and cooperative U.S. corporate media as part of a cloak-and-dagger game of misdirection?
What doesn’t surprise me at all is that the corporate whores in the Big TV Media were spinning this well into the positive side. I cringed yesterday as I saw the whores on CNN smirking as though Bush had pulled off a winning quarterback sneak (for their favorite team) in the Super Bowl.
This piece of shyt can’t find time to visit a soldier’s funeral, but he can find time to sneak into Baghdad for a cheap photo-op? Jeez. I guess I should also not be surprised that some wing-nuts in here are already praising this stunt, as well.
THIS ONE you’ll have to look up and read yourself.
