We live in Orwellian times indeed:
1. An explosive "smoking gun" memo surfaces, proving that Bush carefully planned the removal of Saddam Hussein long before the issue of WMD's had even surfaced, yet the US press virtually ignores it.
2. Hundreds, if not thousands, of pro-democracy protesters are being massacred by an evil Central Asian dictator who boils people alive, yet the warbloggers have nothing to say on the matter. The Bush White House just express concern. Where's that pre-emptive invasion plan, George?
3. Anti-US protests erupt across the Muslim world and the Bush White House blames a magazine for running a story that has been getting reported in various other publications for the last two years. Never mind that the reporter who wrote the story is the same guy who broke the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Oblivious to the irony, the same wardogs who bayed for Clinton's scalp are now baying for Newsweek's destruction. Hmmn, does that sound like a setup to you?
The news organization turns to the administration for a denial. The administration says nothing. The news organization runs the story. The administration jumps on the necks of the news organization with both feet — or has its proxies do it for them.4. Meanwhile, back home in Oz, a right-wing warblogger in the employment of a Liberal Senator is exposed as a liar, yet instead of demanding his resignation "The (ahem!) Australian" newspaper leads the attack on those who question his credibility.
That’s beyond shameful. It’s treasonous.
Is it any surprise to read that all the televisions in the White House are permanently switched on to FOX NEWS?
