Reader comment on item: Republicans Are Inconsistent with Obama, But Democrats Are Hypocritical

Submitted by John W McGinley (United States), Jul 11, 2011 at 16:49

You could have called it a draw, but, as usual, you submit to accuracy. The last sentence of the article was perfectly phrased. Speaking about Bush and getting us into Iraq. There is a still repressed cover-up of one dimension of 9-11. It concerns Israeli spies in America at that time; George Tenant (the Anti-Israeli director of the CIA who, very curiously was a holdover from the Clinton Administration); the Mexican Stand-off between the Bush family and Tenant based on mutual baclmail information the Bush family had on Tenant and long-standing blackmail information which Tenant had on the Bush-family. In this blackmail standoff Tenant was more vulnerable than Bush and so he caved. What resulted was Tenant's "slam-dunk" assurance that one way or another -- truth was not an issue -- the CIA would find for Bush that Hussein was harboring Weapons of Mass Destruction which was the (fictitious) card played by Bush in getting us mired down in Iraq. This whole concatenation cries out for some serious investigative reporting. Are you equal to the task?
