Letter to the Editor
A lot of people are saying that the 24 civilians killed in the Haditha cover up is the worst scandal of the Bush presidency. People are saying this one is worse than Abu Ghraib. I don’t agree. This scandal isn’t really Bush’s fault. In contrast Abu Ghraib was an operation that had it’s roots at the top. Bush wanted people tortured, but not murdered. In fact, I think there are a number of scandals that are worse than Haditha.
For example, the secret offshore prison scandal is far worse because it’s something that Bush was involved with. The same is true for other failures like the trade deficit, the failed Medicare drug program, the 9 trillion dollar debt, the high price of gas, 2500 dead soldiers, hurricane Karina, the failed wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, his failed
Social Security plan, the 2 stolen elections, immigration issues, troops on the border with Mexico, outsourcing jobs, high interest rates, insurgents, terrorism, the election of Hammas, bankruptcies, America’s damaged reputation, NSA spying, CIA leaks, Halliburton, Stem Cells, drilling in Alaska, Mission Accomplished, no WMDs, Gitmo, 9-11, Osama bin Laden still free, tax cuts for the rich, FEMA, the high price of housing, Harriet Woods, all children left behind, record oil company profits, the nuclear crisis in Korean and Iran, and turning peace and prosperity into war and poverty.
Bush can’t be blamed for everything. I say that global warming, bird flu, Cheney shooting, and Haditha are not his fault. Let’s not blame Bush for the things he had nothing to do with.
