Building POlicy on a Foundation of Lies...
The latest report on the Iraqi government was released to AP; the concensus, the Iraqi government failed to achieve one of the benchmarks established in the wake of the “surge” policy promoted by the White House

Now what?

I am getting pangs of deja-vu.

Will we see helicopters removing the remnants of our failed efforts as the Islamic hordes attack the walls of our Embassy?

Will we abandon friendly Iraqi's to the vengeful Shiia' militias?

"When will we ever learn?" goes the lyrics...

We never seem to learn from our past mistakes.

Because this president practiced fast=draws in the mirror, does this mean we shall forever pay the price of someone's fantasy?

When will America learn? When will we grow up?

As Bush indulges in his game of war, the rest of the world goes to hell in a handbasket.

OUr schools fall apart...

Our economy rewards the bosses and forgets the worker

We become a nation of retailers where we don't even make the products carried by our stores...

It is clear we have lost our way....

What have our failed policies wrought?

Is the world a better place?

Have our precipitous actions against the Iraqis better insulated us here at home?

I am so reminded of Nixon’s lies and Kissenger bombing Cambodia.

But at least Nixon never lost sight of his role in the World and the need to make the world a better place.
With this president, such thoughts never even enter the equation.

What has happened goes beyond shame.

But shouldn't we have known better? Shouldn't we have understood that when you elect someone who has no feeling or interest in governance, who tends to see facts as something to be manipulated, who believes that he is above the law and has the ability to rewrite history, that we will endure a rocky road to fulfill his personal fantasies....

May we learn, dear God, from our mistakes...

It is now time to consider catharsis...

We need two years of intense investigations into every aspect of this government, we need to clear the air, then we need to make the decision to end it and put this nightmare behind us….

For the sake of every parent who lost a child; for the sake of what democracy is all about; and for the sake of our future,

We must root out all of the evil and start to rebuild the democracy that was...

We must get back to honesty, transparency and the rule of law.

We must get back to the vision of our Founding Fathers if we are to survive as a democracy.

The road back will not be easy in the light of what we face, and anyone who takes on this thankless task must be prepared to endure that which most of us don’t even want to contemplate.

But that is the way to new beginnings….

A genesis for a country that lost its way!
