More of the cheney/bush/republican congress incompetent criminality coming to light, especially out of the VA, while Two Occupations were still ongoing and troops were returning for the care needed, as their brothers and sisters were returning in Flag Draped Coffins!!
Former high-ranking information technology officials at the Veterans Affairs Department gave preferential treatment to certain contractors, engaged in nepotism in hiring and, in one case, took advantage of a relationship with a supervisor for personal gain, according to a new report from the department’s inspector general……………Rest Here
And then we have this, though known or suspected strongly at the time, book review by the author that’s hitting all over, just before the weekend political shows, of which the country will just yawn at but will enhance sales, may even drive it to number one on the best sellers lists, under Not Fiction!!
TREASON IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE
Advancing Political Agenda at dangerous expense of the public good is a criminal act
Former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge claims in a new book “The Test of Our Times: America Under Siege…And How We Can Be Safe Again” that he was pressured by other members of President George W. Bush’s Cabinet to raise the nation’s terror alert level just before the 2004 presidential election.
Presssured? Is this a bad joke?
Ridge says he objected to raising the security level despite the urgings of former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, according to a publicity release from Ridge’s publisher. He said the episode convinced him to follow through with his plans to leave the administration; he resigned on Nov. 30, 2004.
While these Machevellian acts are NOT unexpected by this terror group, what is unexpected is watching the American public continue to be hypnotized into thinking this is just some news story that is quaint to be read in a book. It’s not. This is freakin scary!………The Rest Here
When is this Country going to Wake Up and realize we are looked at as “Crap” on the World Stage, an Arrogant and Apathetic society sinking faster in it’s own waste!!
I just hope, and that’s slim, that the present Justice Department, and Justice Departments to come, even with the politically embedded incompetent lawyers from the previous, are taking these reports seriously. As an older adult, trying to be what we all should be ‘responsible’ and trying to leave a ‘better world’ behind, like our folks did for us till it all collapsed through no fault of theirs, I would really like to see some Accountability for the many many crimes committed, in the name of ideologies instead of as a nation trying, are brought under the Laws we have, and should be respected and followed. Or we can do what some would really like, tear up our Constitution and Flush this Nation into the History Books as Failed!!
