War Critics helping the enemy?
This from the Washington Post,
In a pointed attack on the news media and critics of President Bush's war and national security policies, Rumsfeld declared: "Any kind of moral and intellectual confusion about who and what is right or wrong can severely weaken the ability of free societies to persevere."
Oh – but it get’s better than that
Rumsfeld stressed that it is misguided for Americans to fall into self-blame and to "return to the destructive view that America -- not the enemy -- is the real source of the world's trouble." He blamed the U.S. media for spreading "myths and distortions . . . about our troops and about our country."
Isn’t that amazing, it isn’t America and its lie to invade Iraq that is the source of this problem, it isn’t their failed experiment of forced democracy to a country who were never going to accept it that is the problem, it isn’t that the whole WMD issue was a fucking outright deception that is the problem, it isn’t American troops torturing Iraqi’s at Abu Ghraib that is the problem, it isn’t America’s blind support for Israel’s brutal occupation in Palestine that is the problem, no none of that – apparently it is the US media who are spreading “myths and distortions”. Well maybe Fox News are spreading myths and distortions, but the majority of American Media are asleep at the wheel. It’s good to see that even questioning the direction of this mad Administration now makes you someone who is ‘weakening’ the war effort – I wonder if we will need to go to go to one of those Halliburton re-education camps?
