Woodward's Book

OK, so there's another book out documenting how decisions were made in the White House and propelled us into war with Iraq. This book is by Bob Woodward of the Washington Post and Watergate fame. This is his 500th book or so about the inner workings of the White House. How he gets access to all of these people is a mystery of the Universe. Presumably for this book he interviewed 75 people close to the President and only Bush himself would go on the record. He was able to interview Bush for 3.5 hours. Hell, the 9/11 Commission doesn't get that long and Cheney has to hold his hand.

Anyway, the point is that all of these books say the same things that most of us have known for a long time if you were paying attention. Cheney is Darth Vader and Bush is his puppet. Powell argued against the war right up until it was time to shit or get off the pot - so he shit all over the American public and the world at the UN on February 5th, 2003 with phony intel that he didn't believe. It was more important for him to keep his job than to save thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars by going public with the con job the administration was putting over on the public.

How many of these books have to be written to convince the American public that the Bush Administration is evil and worse, costing them money. These guys have got to go!!!!!
