Thank You, God

Another big picture viewer heard from: Molly Ivins of The Free Press sees it too.

"Actually, we are missing the point here. The point being that Joseph Wilson is merely one of the many people who provided one of the by now innumerable pieces of evidence that this administration lied about why we went to war in Iraq. When former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill wrote that Bush planned to invade Iraq from the day he took office, the administration went after O'Neill. When Richard Clarke disclosed that the Bushies wanted to use Sept. 11 to go after Saddam Hussein from Sept. 12 on, they went after Clarke. They went after Gen. Zinni, they went after Gen. Shinseki and everyone else who opposed the folly or told the truth about it. After they got done lying about weapons of mass destruction and about connections to Al Qaeda, they switched to the stomach-churning pretense that we had done it all for democracy. Urp."

  1. The lineage of people who have pointed out that the King has no clothes and who were then trashed by all the King's men is really the most blatent, in-your-face aspect of all this.

    Those who want to isolate the Rove thing from the larger context are either gullible or deliberately dishonest, IMHO.

  2. Well, that's certainly my take . I sort of think that a lot of folks are info overloaded to an extent they just can't think everything through.

    That's a very valid point. I know that I have the same problems sometimes. Which, quite frankly, is one of the things I like about your blog here. You refocus some of these issues in a way that reminds me to keep my eye on the big picture.

  4. Kind of you to say, Kevin. I do my best, and am more than happy to hear from folks when they think I'm missing said big picture.

    Best,

    Jeff
