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.

Mark Hyman (GOP Attack Weasel), has proclaimed that some members of Congress hate the troops.

To prove this, he cites the votes on a politically-motivated resolution in the Congress that says that Congress supports the troops and the Iraqi people. Naturally, those members of Congress who saw this as a thinly-veiled, political ploy, voted against it. Now, Hyman wants you to believe that voting against this meaningless, feel-good resolution means that these legislators hate the troops.

So Mr. Hyman, when George W. Bush threatened to veto the version of the $87 billion dollar supplemental appropriation that earmarked money to go to supplying and equipping the troops, did this show he hated the troops?

Stop-loss orders, extended deployments, multiple deployments, lack of state-of-the-art body armor, bullet shortages, water shortages, unarmored vehicles, proposed cuts in hazardous duty pay, proposed cuts in veterans benefits, rotten food served by Halliburton, are, I suppose, examples of the love those in charge show for the troops. Support needs to be more than empty rhetoric.
