The Bush administration beats its chest and thrashes about like a gorilla on the cause of “National Security.”
Yet when one of Bush’s buddies covers up the exposure of a CIA agent, someone tasked with managing national security, it isn’t called treason – rather, the sentence is commuted. If anyone outside of Bush’s “old boys club” would have done the same they would have been branded an unpatriotic traitor and thrown the book.
I’m disgusted. This is not a republican/democrat issue – this is an issue of consistency. If Bush and his buddies are “tough on terrorism” why is it that one of their own goes free when he threatens the very “security” scare they seem intent upon whipping Americans (and the world) into fearing???
(I have a quick answer: CYA…)
