Vice-president Dick Cheney’s burden on the Bush administration grew heavier yesterday after a former senior US state department official (Larry Wilkerson) said he could be guilty of a war crime over the abuse of prisoners.
Lefti runs down why the ‘opposition’ party response to Bush’s speech yesterday on Iraq is anything but opposition, rather it’s just more timid, muddled, squeaking from the Dems. Yes, Virginia, during the Vietnam War there were actual Democratic Senators who thundered opposition to the war from the floors of Congress. Where are they now?
Is this alleged opposition in Congress attacking Bush over the al-Jazeera bombing threat or the CIA using European airports to transport prisoners to be tortured? Well, of course they aren’t. And they should be.
