Dr. Rice is
Either Incompetent or a Liar
Lorenzo Hagerty, April 9, 2004
Dr. Rice's testimony the other
day brought out a frightening fact: If half of the people
in this country can actually swallow her stories, then the
power elite have succeeded in their coarsening and dumbing-down
of America. Where is the public outrage calling for her resignation?
No matter what you believe about whether or not the attacks
of September 11th could have been prevented, there is no denying
the fact that Dr. Rice is either incompetent or a liar.
I was flabbergasted when I
heard her correct the comment she made about never imagining
that a terrorist would fly an airplane into a building. Earlier
she said "no one" could have imagined such a thing.
Under oath she said, " I should have said I couldn't
have imagined it." The public record is now very clear
about the fact that there were a good many people in the government
who not only imagined such a thing but even predicted it.
With all of the intelligence information she had access to,
if Dr. Rice couldn't imagine such a thing then she is the
most incompetent National Security Advisor ever.
Another example of her chutzpa
was where she blandly smiled and said she couldn't remember
if she had bothered to tell Bush that there were 70 Al Queda
cells operating in the US . . . and those were only the ones
we knew about! Couple that little tidbit with the fact that
one of Bush's daily briefings was titled "'Bin Laden
Determined to Attack Inside the United States" and at
the very least this is incompetence. Personally, I don't believe
Dr. Rice is that stupid, which only leaves one alternative,
she is lying. So what's really going on here? Let's follow
This is only a theory, but
parts of it are at least worth looking into.
Sometime in 1995, George the
First introduced Dr. Rice to little George. Now little George,
while he's not stupid, is studiously ignorant. He doesn't
know and doesn't care very much about the world outside of
his immediate range of family and friends. He already knew
that his father and his father's business cronies had decided
to put him in the White House. That was just fine with little
George, as long as he didn't have to do too much thinking.
So here comes his daddy who introduces Dr. Rice as the person
who will do all of his foreign policy work for him. She is
going to be the brains of the outfit he is told.
How very clever it was of those
powerful businessmen to hide their point person right out
in the open. All this time we thought that Cheney was the
brains behind this criminal enterprise. But he may only be
a decoy. Could it be Dr. Rice who is the source of all the
bad policy coming out of this junta?
And by the way, if you don't think
this is a criminal enterprise, just follow the money. Billions
upon billions of taxpayer dollars are being transferred out
of our treasury into the bank accounts of Halliburton, Carlyle,
and their sordid friends. Should the human species be fortunate
enough to survive for another millennium, they will still
be talking about this, the boldest criminal venture of all
times. These guys started a war without provocation. Their
bombs destroyed the infrastructure of an already fragile,
but oil-rich, country. And now, after first paying for the
bombs that destroyed Iraq, the US taxpayers are footing the
bill to rebuild the infrastructure that we destroyed. Ultimately,
a significant part of those taxpayer dollars wind up lining
the pockets of the many friends of the Cheney-Bush junta.
It's brilliant! Totally immoral, but brilliant nonetheless.
Their best stroke, however,
was to entice Dr. Rice to play the role of their Dr. Strangelove.
Actually, I feel a little sorry for her. She is obviously
a brilliant and talented person. It is just too bad that she
has lent her talent to such an unholy enterprise.
