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.

Transparent Hypocrisy 

GWB accuses North Korea of being non-transparent. This from the most secretive administration in history. This from an administration that hides behind "executive privilege" even though it's a privilege created by an activist court and is no where in the Constitution. This is an administration that has ignored requests under the Freedom of Information Act. This is an administration that has denied access to presidential papers from prior administrations. This is an adminstration that challenges civil law suits by claiming "State Secrets" another court created privilege. This is an administration that created a system of secret prisons. This is an adminstration that secretly monitors U.S. citizens without a warrant.

Yeah, those damn N. Koreans are non-transparent for sure. Bush promised us "transparency in government." About the only thing that is transparent is his disdain for the rights and privileges of U.S. citizens and our shared heritage of Constitutional guarantees.
