Letter to the Editor
There’s an old saying, “The most important thing in politics is sincerity. Once you learn how to fake that you have it made.” Today President Bush demonstrated that principle with a fake teleconference where Bush pretended to do an unscripted interview with troops in Iraq. However they forgot that the cameras were on while the troops were being coached as to what would be asked and what to say. A fake interview to sell a fake war to an American audience who wants to believe that they aren’t being suckered into sacrificing the lives of their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers for no reason at all. I believe that when someone has to lie that they are admitting that the truth is something other than what they are trying to get you to believe.
