But, behind the scenes, apparently, a deal has been cut. If McCain is elected, he will protect Junior.
In an interview with the German publication Der Spiegel, McCain aide Robert Kagan revealed the planned agenda for a McCain administration: Extend the Bush cover-up of the lies used to initiate the invasion of Iraq. As reported by ThinkProgress:
SPIEGEL: Isn’t it true that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld took advantage of the outrage over the 9/11 terrorist attacks to strike Iraq? Is it even possible anymore to deny that the war was based on manipulation, exaggeration and flat-out lies? […]Conspiracy theories? There are 935 documented lies, uttered by Big Dick, Rumsfeld, Condi Rice, Junior and others related to the Iraq war, both pre- and post-invasion. The administration, with its lapdog Attorney General, Michael Mukasey, has stone-walled all inquiries into the matter.
KAGAN: In retrospect, we have to admit that Washington could have waited a while longer. That’s a different question. But I think it’s about time we moved beyond this silly conversation and these absurd conspiracy theories.
lies that the Bush administration used to sell their filthy war, it could very well mean the death of the Republican party. McCain won't have that. As Kagan indicates, McCain will even protect a man whom he despises, Junior Bush, who slandered McCain's wife and child in the 2000 South Carolina Republican primary, rather than let his party be destroyed.
I've got news for Mr. Kagan, and for John McCain: I'm not willing to just "move on." Hundreds of thousands of people have died or been maimed or driven to despair by this war. I voted for Barack Obama for many reasons, but chief among them was the possibility that an Obama administration might someday bring these filthy liars to justice.
The Constitution of the United States either means something, or it doesn't. Junior Bush, with his flagrant disrespect for that cherished document has shown how he feels about it. Apparently, the McCain campaign agrees with him.
"Country First," John? Don't make me wretch!
