RE: Another Bushite Scandal in the making. Who would have thought.

You are not really trying to blame this on Bushie are you?
Hey, he's the guy who picks them. We all know how good he as at that - the former head of the Arabian Horse Breeder's Association was such an expert at disaster recovery, and of course his personal attorney would have made a fine Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. And then there is our wonderful Secretary of Defense, who commits blunder after blunder yet still stays on, but nothing beats the pinning of national medals on the architects of the Iraq disaster, Bremer, Frank, and Tenet. Why should anyone be surprised that one of the top guys in charge of protecting our children likes to fuck them too?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
