THE LYING CONTINUES (PART II)

Apparently, the Bushies don’t know when to quit. The truth, to them, is in the eye of the gullible. Unfortunately, the ranks of the gullible get much of their information from the corporate whore media. The corporate whore media apparently doesn’t want to dwell on how diametrically opposed the Bushies’ utterances are from the facts. Perhaps this is why Michael Moore is so universally despised by wing-nuts everywhere (and it probably explains why many ‘centrists’ and ‘moderates’ don’t want to get to close to him, either).

Case in point, from the Guardian Unlimited (which I found by way of the Center for American Progress):

Moore footage shows new CIA boss ruling himself out

The Guardian

Michael Moore yesterday released unseen footage of the new CIA boss explaining his own unsuitability for the role. The scene, which didn’t make the cut for Fahrenheit 9/11, shows Porter Goss pointing out that his lack of language and computer skills means he “wouldn’t get a job” with the CIA.

Only Senate approval lies between Republican Congressman Porter Goss and the office of America’s most senior intelligence chief following his nomination by the president, George Bush, earlier this week.

Just six months ago, however, Goss told Moore’s production company he doubted he could even find employment with the agency.

Goss, who served in army intelligence and the CIA 30 years ago, said: “I couldn’t get a job with the CIA today. I am not qualified. I don’t have the language skills.”

Porter Goss is set to take over from George Tenet, who resigned before the 9/11 commission delivered its damning verdict on the state of the US intelligence community.

He explained, “My language skills were romance languages and stuff. We’re looking for Arabists today. I don’t have the cultural background probably.

“And I certainly don’t have the technical skills, as my children remind me every day: ‘Dad, you got to get better on your computer.’ So, the things that you need to have, I don’t have.”

The White House dismissed the footage as “hearsay”. Goss was described as the “right man” by the president on Tuesday.
