Sex Scandal Stalls Bush’s Anti-Terror Talk

The Mark Foley imbroglio is drowning out Bush’s cut-and-run rhetoric and even Bob Woodward’s revelations, say many analysts.
Again, we think this is a completely unsatisfactory way for the Democrats to win in November, but que sera, sera.

Robert Scheer: Rice More Sordid Than Foley

Rep. Mark Foley’s predations might be evidence of a Republican Party gone to seed, but don’t let it obscure the fact that Condoleezza Rice appears to have lied under oath about Al Qaeda attack warnings she received in advance of Sept. 11.

Woodward: Kissinger Re-Fighting Vietnam via Bush

In his “60 Minutes” interview, Bob Woodward said Henry Kissinger “is almost like a member of the [Bush] family,” and that in his frequent meetings with Bush and Cheney, Kissinger’s dogmatic ‘stay the course’ advice on Iraq amounts to “fighting the Vietnam war again.”

Woodward: Card Urged Bush to Toss Rumsfeld

More from Woodward’s book: President Bush’s then-chief of staff and Bush’s wife, Laura, pleaded with the president to fire Rumsfeld during 2004 and 2005. But Cheney and Rove convinced Bush that doing so would send the wrong message.

  • Also, there’s more evidence that Bush’s knowledge about the horrible state of affairs in Iraq was at incredible odds with his public statements.
  • Gen. John Abizaid, head of the Central Command, basically agreed with Rep. John Murtha about the hopeless situation in Iraq.

    More Iraq Disclosures From Woodward’s Book

    Among them: Bush ignored calls from a top Iraqi advisor in 2003 to send more troops to fight the insurgency; Rumsfeld wouldn’t return Rice’s calls until Bush made him do so; the top U.S. general in the Middle East told visitors in 2005 that Rumsfeld has no credibility to defend the war publicly….

    Woodward: Bush Covering Up Iraq Violence

    In his new book, “State of Denial,” Bob Woodward reports that Iraqi insurgents attack our troops over 100 times per day—far more than what Bush has disclosed publicly. Also: Key intelligence predicts the situation will deteriorate in 2007 before getting better. (“60 Minutes” will air a Woodward interview this Sunday.)
    Yes, we know Woodward frequently acts as a White House stenographer, but he also surfaces real game-changing news.
