Former White House aide takes aim at War on Terror

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...

"...Part of that stemmed from his frustration with the culture of the White House. He was loath to discuss it. His wife, Bonnie, a school administrator, was not: "It's a very closed, small, controlled group. This is an administration that determines what it thinks and then sets about to prove it. There's almost a religious kind of certainty. There's no curiosity about opposing points of view. It's very scary. There's kind of a ghost agenda."

In the end, Beers was arriving at work each day with knots in his stomach. He did not want to abandon his colleagues at such a critical, dangerous time..."

And, to pile it on here, is this opinion column that discusses a recent move by the Republican majority in Congress to deny money to protect American ports from terrorism. Apparently, the conservative catch-phrase ""Remember 9-11"" has gone from a noble call to vigilance and duty to a jingoistic catch-phrase to denegrate their political opponents.

The guy works for Kerry. I don''t believe him. Just like I don''t believe Dick Morris blamming everything on Clinton.

Funny, weren''t you the one accusing us of unfairly being biased against the members of the Administration just because we don''t like Bush?

It has nothing to do with Kerry. I do not trust people who have a political agenda. This man does. I do not belive Dick Morris, he has one. If this guy had just quit and given the interview, I would have believed him. He has a political agenda.

Are you saying that the President of the United States of America, an elected official, does not have a political agenda when it comes to matters like this? Are you saying he doesn''t have an interest in putting down any sort of talk like this?

He does have a political agenda. I do not believe people like Ari Fliesher, or people from the National Review. They are pushing their political agenda. The guy in the article would be a great interview if he wasn''t working on his political agenda.

I think what Rat Boy is saying is, why is it ok to not trust this guy because of his political agenda, yet when someone distrusts Bush because of his political agenda you accuse them of being biased?

I admit theres alot of people who hate Bush because he is Bush, but theres even more who distrust his agenda.

Not liking bush on theory is fine. Hating Bush and working backwards isn''t. I do not like Bush.

Oh thats it, no more agreeing with me. It makes arguments far too reasonable. From now on, I think we should fuel our SUVs with the blood of the newborn, and feast on thier remains. The remains of the newborn, not the SUVs. I mean really, eating an SUV, does that make sense?

Damn, looks like Pyro''s gone Republican...
