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.

Why I Am a Cynic 

Tillman posthumously awarded prestigious Silver Star
By Billy House, The Arizona Republic

WASHINGTON — Pat Tillman died while leading a team of Army Rangers up a remote southeastern Afghan hill to knock out enemy fire that had pinned down other American soldiers, the Army said Friday.


Report: Army Sat On Tillman Info

(CBS/AP) Army officials knew within days of Pat Tillman’s death that the former NFL player had been killed by fellow Rangers during a patrol in Afghanistan but did not inform his family and the public for weeks, The Washington Post reported.


As with the Jessica Lynch saga, facts learned subsequently are in conflict with the initial reporting of the events. Is this a purposeful disinformation campaign directed at the American public. These reports don't make themselves up; somebody, somewhere is putting the lies into the stream of information.

Just when we need a hero, we get one. Just when we need some proof to support some other contention, it appears in serrendipitous fashion.

The last five years have exposed image creation on a Hollywood scale, massive propaganda and disinformation efforts, and the willingness of elected government officials to lie in our faces.

No wonder I don't believe much of what they say.

Please note: I respect Pat Tillman's sacrifice for our country. This is not to diminish that sacrifice but I think the willingness of this administraion to use his death to further their own corrupt agenda is an insult to Pat Tillman and his family, as well as the American people.
