This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Loyalty is Job One
Analysts Behind Iraq Intelligence Were Rewarded:
"Two Army analysts whose work has been cited as part of a key intelligence failure on Iraq -- the claim that aluminum tubes sought by the Baghdad government were most likely meant for a nuclear weapons program rather than for rockets -- have received job performance awards in each of the past three years, officials said."

This, the breakdown of accountability, might be what we're talking about a few years from now when we refer to the "Bush Era".

Despite sharp critiques from the president's commission and the Senate intelligence committee, no major reprimand or penalty has been announced publicly in connection with the intelligence failures, though investigations are still underway at the CIA. George J. Tenet resigned as CIA director but was later awarded the Medal of Freedom by Bush.

The medal of honor for someone who royally fucked up?

I know its cool to be Republican, at least around in these parts. The tough guy rhetoric, and the barrage of media outlets disparaging the critics, has had an enormous effect on people that don't want to be seen as being on the losing side. I know why its been effective. But I have to wonder if I was the only one awake during the nineties when allegations were flying all over the place and none of them seemed to be based in reality?

Just the other day...

A federal jury found a former top campaign official for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., not guilty Friday of charges that he intentionally covered up the lavish costs of a 2000 celebrity fund-raising gala.

This follows in the series of unfounded allegations that had the effect of creating the appearance of impropriety where often there was none.

Now, however, we have real corruption in the Whitehouse and nobody seems to care. Its not the real act of deception, like saying that someone has deadly weapons, that matters, its the appearance of deception, a cover up involving celebrities, that does.
