The New Found Medals Of Butt-Kissing
Bush awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to three men, George Tenet, Paul Bremer and General Tommy Franks. The Peach is having a number of problems with the selections. Let's start with George Tenet. Isn't he the same guy that said going after Iraq based on the WMD's information was a "slam dunk," and then then took the blame for all of the Bush administration's lies and missteps during the 9/11 hearings? And didn't Paul Bremer, recognizing the situation in Iraq was declining, state that the Pentagon's failure to supply more troops led to the inability to secure the nation? And wasn't Franks' rapid destruction of the Iraq army, with no immediate plan for subsequent insurgent attacks, what led Bush to call the invasion a "catastrophic success"?
What gives here? Is the White House rewarding mediocrity, stupidity, or the simple ability to nod "yes" to Bush?
