Damning Bush Administration

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 19, 2006

Editors,
    Concerning Bush's war on terrorism:
    1) Declassified reports show intelligence agencies informed the White House of the false and unreliable nature of WMD and al Qaeda tie-ins via Iraq. Usage of such faulty evidence to justify stated war rationale before Congress is lying by omission.
    2) Two percent of Iraqis believe U.S. invaded to free Iraq, 76% believe it's for Iraq's oil.
    3) Pakistan "ally" negotiates truce with tribes giving bin Laden and Taliban sanctuary.
    4) Taliban resurgence is financed by opium (92% of world's supply) allowed by Afghanistan government, another ally.
    5) NATO refuses to send reinforcements to Afghanistan; some members haven't sent troops initially promised.
    6) Security failure allows Argentine flight to land at Bush Airport (Houston) with one-half of a dynamite stick in passenger luggage.
    7) FBI organizes and orchestrates a “terrorist cell” of Miami losers, which they bust.
    8) Terrorist cell in London is destroyed because British Muslim citizen calls the authorities.
    9) "Alternative interrogation"/torture methods endorsed by Bush administration called into question by leading military lawyers and FBI interrogators on legal and useful intelligence grounds.
    10) There is still no enabling of all the 9/11 Commission's recommendations, thus leaving high-profile targets, such as New York City and Los Angeles, vulnerable.
    Incompetent: lacking the ability, intelligence, or strength to do whatever is required.
    Concerning "defeatocrat/appeaser" character assassination: "To announce that there must be no criticism of the president ... is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonous to the American public." – Theodore Roosevelt.
    Support the troops. Vote down the Republican incompetents.
