"At one point I had a friend who was a normal and sane person, but a combination of 9/11 propaganda and heavy doses of ephedrine-laced Metabolife turned her into a frothing, one-dimensional Neocon "Security Mom". Now I don't talk to her, but every now and then I get the urge to call up her answering machine and shout, "QUAGMIRE!! QUAGMIRE!! QUAGMIIIIIIIIIRE!!" into the phone and hang up. "
" As much wrongdoing as we have learned about on the part of Bush administration already, it is almost certainly the case that there is much, much more that we don't know about, but ought to.yay sibel.
Beginning even before the 9/11 attacks and worsening substantially since, the administration has operated behind an almost impenetrable wall of unprecedented secrecy. More than preemptive wars, tax cuts, or presidential lawlessness, secrecy is its guiding principle, its core belief (hence the incomparable hatred that spews forth at those, such as reporters, whistleblowers, and former allies who reveal their secrets). Their allies who have controlled Congress for the last five years have not only failed to fulfill their oversight and investigative duties, but have actively helped shield the administration from any real scrutiny."
