So Much For "Never Forget"
So, yeah, I've been busy this week. I moved back into the dorms, and I've started my senior year. Between the classes, the adjusted schedule, and darting out of town so that I can get stuff that was left behind during the initial move-in, I haven't been able to post much.
Which means I wasn't able to post this steaming load when it was dropped:
Q But Osama bin Laden is the one that — you keep talking about his lieutenants, and, yes, they are very important, but Osama bin Laden was the mastermind of 9/11 –
PERINO: No, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was the mastermind of 9/11, and he’s sitting in jail right now.
Well, good that we know that now, isn't it?
Seven years. Seven. Motherfucking. Years. That is the time the Bush administration, nay, the GOP as a whole, has been flying around the flag of 9/11 to enforce its agenda. Iraq? 9/11! Iran? 9/11! Patriot Act? 9/11! FISA? 9/11! But it can't cut both ways, can it? When it turns out that we could have done more to prevent 9/11, Bush ignores the 9/11 Commission Report. When we've gone seven years without capturing the man behind al-Qaeda, the administration just shifts the goalposts.
And this isn't going to stop with Bush, not by any stretch of the imagination. At the RNC, which is basically McCain's debutante ball, they air this goddamn monstrosity that hijacks 9/11 to rally the war flag against Iran by connecting the attacks to the hostage crisis. They will keep waving this flag with no sense of shame or humiliation.
They have turned one of the worst tragedies in the history of our nation into a joke. Those disgusting bastards.
