A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

gwb receives promotion to 2nd lieutenant without going to Officer Candidate School.

gwb receives honorable discharge without showing up for assigned duty.

Jessica Lynch gets Bronze Star for being captured while unconscious and treated in Iragi hospital.

Pat Tillman gets Silver Star for being shot by his own troops in what can only be described as one big FUBAR operation.

Paul Bremer gets Presidential Medal of Freedom for foolishly disbanding the Iraqi army and having unaccounted for billions of dollars that were to go to reconstruction.

George Tenet gets Presidential Medal of Freedom for recognizing and warning the President of the threat of Al Queda only to have his warnings ignored and then keeping quiet about it.

Tommy Franks gets the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is civilian award, for his leadership (while in the military) of the invasion of Iraq. The media likes to portray this military campaign as "brilliant." A new "blitz krieg" if you will. But seriously, with the disparity of the military forces involved, can you imagine any other initial outcome? I wonder if the award has anything to do with Franks' endorsement of gwb in the last presidential selection.
