It is pure gall that this Administration, after blurring the line on legal interrogation techniques, now claims that standards and guidance are too vague. They are the reason the standard is vague.

But we should not be surprised. After all, this is the machine that came up with "reformer with results" and attacked John McCain's patriotism.

Look at the Torture Memos as a good example. The answer to the rabid Torture Memo I outcry was Torture Memo II. Regular readers will note how little assistance that gives.

So in a manner typical of this Administration, they tell a bold-faced lie and expect most people don't know the difference. Come now. Not all of us were C students.

You have no idea just how many people buy it. I work with educated people, and I suspect you did as well. Everyone I work with on a day to day basis has a college degree. Most (all I think) were educated outside the USA where public education works.

The rank and file American has no idea. So they buy the propaganda. They do not want to, or are not able to think. Anyone who does not agree with Bush is written off as a "Bush basher who would never agree with anything the man did".

They are unable to see what is going on. Or they choose to not care. This is why Bush will get away with it.

PS - watch out for gangs of squirrels!

More people are beginning to see. I don't think the American people are all that gullible. It takes time but we eventually wake up.
