Five top German intelligence officers say that the Bush administration and the CIA repeatedly ignored warnings about the veracity of the information that an Iraqi informant named 'Curveball' was giving about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. The Los Angeles Times, in a massive report published Sunday, reports that "the Bush administration and the CIA repeatedly exaggerated his claims during the run-up to the war in Iraq." They also say that 'Curveball,' whom the Germans described as "not a psychologically stable guy," never claimed that he had produced germ weapons, nor had he ever seen anyone do it.
The ineptitude is shown to be worse every day. But what should we have expected when the country puts an incompetent, inexperienced dolt into the highest position in the land?
I think we need a new election: not an presidential election, but a vote to decide if we allow the self proclaimed bible-thumping, 'values & morals' clan to vote and/or run in the next election. I know how I'd vote... and I have a solution that would make everyone happy.
We need to find a location for all these people -- maybe Idaho -- and give them their own country: Jesus-land ... where they can all argue about why god caused it to rain on one city and not another ... and whether exposing a woman's nipple during the Superbowl should be punishable via prison time or time in the stocks.
Its the perfect solution: the Jesus freaks can beat themselves up about who's the most pious and we can go about living our lives in a secular democracy.
