The Way-Back Machine
On May 1st
, 2003 the Shrubbery made a landing aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln
and told us the "Mission" had been "Accomplished". This makes Rumsfeld's war-on-terror memo
on October 16th
, 2003 even more weird. Why does Rumsfeld need "metrics" five months after the job is supposedly finished?
My point is that these people don't have a compass. There is no course to stay. Their only goal is to make a lot of money for their friends. Bush has no great belief or goal in his life; he borrows beliefs from others without ever bothering to understand them.
Only a great writer or total hack would have scheduled the "Mission Accomplished" speech on May Day.
