The last few days have certainly been eventful for the GOP, also known as the Party of Corruption and Cronyism. For starters, our renowned and beloved VP (who, by the way, can order a staff member to leak classified information to the press, then hypocritically howl about or threaten to "bring to justice" anyone who should dare to expose illegal acts committed by the White House), shot someone today or yesterday in Texas while hunting democrats. Whoops! Sorry - I meant quail.
The Sunday talk shows were alive today with discussion and spin on wiretapping and cherry picked intelligence leading to the war on Iraq to the point that it is clear Cheney cannot no longer slow the hemorrhaging of news that exposes or questions the Bush Administration’s policies. Tough luck Dick.
CHENEY SHOOTS FELLOW HUNTER
Libby squeals on Cheney while Brownie rats on the incompetent Department of Homeland Insecurity. I am sure you've read the pieces or heard the news on the MSM, but below is a couple of posts in case you missed the Operas of the Singing Birds or the Playing the Blame Game Soap Operas. Call it how you see it. Libby's singing is more cunning and cynical however, and may have been manipulated by Cheney the puppet master who may have orchestrated an outcome favorable both to Libby and Cheney. Beware the evil doing Cheney. If he shoots a friend, we need to be worried.
SQUEALING BROWNIE PIECE HERE
I read a wonderful piece in the NYT today on Brownie's testimony but cannot find it online. Here is one from yahoo.com published today, which is pretty close to the piece in the NYT.

RETIRED CIA OFFICIAL SAYS BUSH/CHENEY CHERRY PICKED INTELLIGENCE TO GO TO WAR WITH IRAQ
Another beautiful aria sung in the Opera of the Singing Birds.

"Official intelligence on Iraqi weapons programs was flawed, but even with its flaws, it was not what led to the war," Pillar wrote in the upcoming issue of the journal Foreign Affairs. Instead, he asserted, the administration "went to war without requesting -- and evidently without being influenced by -- any strategic-level intelligence assessments on any aspect of Iraq."
"It has become clear that official intelligence was not relied on in making even the most significant national security decisions, that intelligence was misused publicly to justify decisions already made, that damaging ill will developed between [Bush] policymakers and intelligence officers, and that the intelligence community's own work was politicized," Pillar wrote.
Pillar's critique is one of the most severe indictments of White House actions by a former Bush official since Richard C. Clarke, a former National Security Council staff member, went public with his criticism of the administration's handling of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and its failure to deal with the terrorist threat beforehand.
