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.

A Scripted Event: Nobody Could Have Predicted... 

The mainstream press is now ridiculing the "scripted" conference between Bush and hand-picked soldiers in Tikrit. There's even news that one of the soldiers is actually a PR flack for the Pentagon. Amazingly, the press chides the administration over this scripting but makes no mention of the scripted press conferences to which it was itself a complicit party. Nor, did the press express the appropriate outrage that a planted shill in the name of Jeff Gannon/Jim Guckert was in their ranks regularly tossing softball questions to Scott McClellan and eventually to Bush himself.

The press did not ridicule the choreographed town hall meetings with vetted audience members and rehearsed citizens. The press did not reveal the extraordinary measures taken to insure a favorable reception to Bush and whatever drivel he was spouting that day.

The presss did not appropriately complain that American citizens who held different views or wanted to protest Bush and his policies were routinely segregated into "Free Speech Zones" where no one would see them, especially GWB.

This event was just more of the same from the propaganda masters who've convinced half the populace that a Pinto is a Lincoln Towncar.
