Some idiot posted this excerpt in "Online Journals." But I think it's worth a second look so I posted it here.
Hello everyone. I’m dropping a thread here just to update you on the current scandals in the Bush Administration.
1. Bush is funding Al Qaeda. …The U.S. has been “pumping money, a great deal of money, without congressional authority, without any congressional oversight” for covert operations in the Middle East where it wants to “stop the Shiite spread or the Shiite influence.” Hersh says these funds have ended up in the hands of “three Sunni jihadist groups” who are “connected to al Qaeda” but “want to take on Hezbollah.” http://thinkprogress.org/2007/02/25/hersh-qaeda
2. Walter Reed Hospital, the crown jewel of US military hospitals for rehabbing wounded soldiers back from Iraq, has become a substandard shithole thirdworld clinic under the Bush Administration. "But problems at Walter Reed are just the tip of the iceberg. When these same veterans leave Walter Reed and return to their local clinics and hospitals, they will be entering the chronically underfunded and understaffed Veterans Affairs system -- where these very same veterans will again face the long wait times, aging facilities, and inadequate staffing….Tell me that doesn't impact the morale of our people on the front lines." http://www.military.com/opinion/0,15202,126557,00.html?wh=news
3. Bush is cutting funding for Veterans’ Health Care at the same time he claims to support the troops. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17117430/“Either the administration is willingly proposing massive cuts in VA health care,” said Rep. Chet Edwards of Texas, chairman of the panel overseeing the VA’s budget. “Or its promise of a balanced budget by 2012 is based on completely unrealistic assumptions.”
The evil this administration does is amazing; All in the name of privatization, crony capitalism, and malevolent incompetence.
