As you know, an American ambassador, Chris Stevens and three others were killed at the American embassy in Libya. So, the Republican-controlled house intelligence committee, acting like, well, Republicans, decided to investigate — and make things worse by trying to embarrass the President. Investigation is probably the last thing on their minds. In any case, they started off by mistakenly releasing the location of a CIA safe-house. That, in itself, is pretty damaging. They were not through, however. Darrell Issa, a Republican, released the names of Libyans “working with” the United States. Were they CIA agents? I wonder if there is any insurance company that would now issue them life insurance policies. I don’t think so.
Now the Republicans are, I suppose, holding President Obama at fault for what happened at the embassy. After all, he wasn’t there to personally shoot the terrorists. So, I guess that by the same reasoning, their hero, George W Bush must be responsible for the deaths on 9/11. He is certainly responsible for the US and Iraqi deaths in Iraq. He is certainly responsible for the torture – smearing the US reputation for years to come. So, I would suggest that maybe we should re-open the investigation of the Iraq mess and if any illegalities exist – such as invading a country that did not do anything to us, then jail terms should be handed out — starting at the top.
Let me suggest something to members of the GOP. Think back. Did you vote for George W Bush in the year 2000? Then, seeing how much damage he was doing to our country, enable him to do more by voting for him again in 2004? If you can answer “yes” to both of those questions then you are partially responsible for the mess that President Bush created. You can’t take back what you have already done but in a small way, you can attempt to make amends to your countrymen:
1. Go find your voter notification card
2. Hold it with both hands.
3. Tear it up into very small pieces.
4. Burn it.
Just think, on voting day you can be an American hero (in your own mind, anyway) by NOT voting. You will serve your country. You will serve the world. Think about it.
