What a surprise to learn that the most-briefed man on the planet — after warning us of impending World War III — can’t be faulted for his statements over the past years, since as he wasn’t aware of the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran.
As the president himself stressed, he was ostensibly left out of the loop until last Tuesday. Wow! I can’t even imagine the kind of security clearance it must take to gain access to that kind of information. Dick Cheney and Condi Rice were also out of the loop? Where have we heard that before?
This president learned from his father, who was vice president at the time of Iran-Contra, who uttered, “I was out of the loop.” Former head of the CIA and having more to do with running the country than a script-reading, front-man president actor, he was not privy? He was out of the loop? Right.
Like his father’s, George W. Bush’s whole presidency has been one big lie after another. Just what we need, another war with a Middle East oil country.
