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.

Donald Rumsfeld has recently begun comparing Iraq war critics with persons from 60+ years ago who may have opposed war with Germany. What he failed to mention was the people in this country who actively worked to provide the Nazi war machine with the capital with which to Blitzkrieg Poland, bomb England, occupy France, and murder 6 million persons of the 'wrong' faith. One such person had direct lineage to the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, Prescott Bush grandfather of George Walker Bush.


Documents in National Archives Prove George W. Bush's Grandfather Traded with Nazis - Even After Pearl Harbor

by John Buchanan (Exclusive to the New Hampshire Gazette)

WASHINGTON - After 60 years of inattention and even denial by the U.S. media, newly-uncovered government documents inThe National Archives and Library of Congress reveal that Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, served as a business partner of and U.S. banking operative for the financial architect of the Nazi war machine from 1926 until 1942, when Congress took aggressive action against Bush and his "enemy national" partners.

The documents also show that Bush and his colleagues, according to reports from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, tried to conceal their financial alliance with German industrialist Fritz Thyssen, a steel and coal baron who, beginning in the mid-1920s, personally funded Adolf Hitler's rise to power by the subversion of democratic principle and German law.

So, as long as we're going to dredge up false comparisons from 6 decades past, let's be thorough. Rumsfeld chides those who would always "blame America first." He, however, would have us believe that we are blameless. This may make us feel good about ourselves, but it's not how rational people resolve issues. If you never ask yourself, "Is there something I could be doing differently," you likely have limited success in solving problems. Sure, it sounds macho and manly to never compromise, never accept defeat, never change course, to make decisions based on your infallible gut instincts, but this isn't NeverLearned Ranch.
