Hack: Mad as Hell

Retired Colonel David Hackworth is sick and tired of the cretins running Dubya's Excellent Imperial Adventure:

The final straw for me was when I asked Pentagon flack Jim Turner last November if Donald Rumsfeld personally signed the letters to the loved ones of those killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan. A day later he told me, “Rumsfeld signs the letters himself.”

But before the sun had set, he sent me the following e-mail: Our official response follows. Jim. “The SECDEF correspondence with any family members of DoD (Department of Defense) personnel is private in nature.”

Then Stars & Stripes reporter Leo Shane III contacted me, jumped onto the story with both boots and brilliantly wore the Pentagon lie machine down into finally confessing that Rumsfeld had not personally signed all the KIA letters.

Okaaaaay. If Rummy & Spinners are into lying about signing KIA letters, then what really went down with WMDs in Iraq, and how is our $6 billion-a-month war in that sad, bloody land really going? And is the Pentagon truly busting its butt to provide our soldiers with sufficient armor protection, or is that spin, too?

The lying under the Rumsfeld regime seems to get worse daily. For example, the SecDef recently said the 9/11 aircraft that crashed in Pennsylvania was shot down – which is either very sloppy or very scary. Or both.

And following their head honcho’s lead, the Pentagon prevaricators have definitely gotten more skilled at pulling the wool over the eyes of all of us, starting with our congressional reps – who as our watchdogs should be first in line to ask hard questions.

Colonel Hackworth is a patriot, and a very conservative guy. If he's asking questions, where in the world are the rest of the patriots and conservatives? It's past time to stop worshipping Caligula and his necrocons and time to get to the bottom of this bloody mess, Republican or Democrat. We're all in this together.
