Dear President Bush,
In what appears to be Biblical level hypocrisy, the United States suggests other nations stand against corruption and for transparent government. When I finally pulled myself from the floor chest aching from a seemingly interminable belly laugh, I pondered why does the average American swallow your swill?
Are they not aware of the Presidential memorandum issued May 5th delegating your powers of super secrecy to the National Intelligence Director. By simply saying “Simon Says 15 U.S.C. 78m(b)(3)(A)” you and Mr. John Negroponte can order anyone to lie for national security reasons. It allows corporations to conceal activities related to national security. It is funny how numerous phone companies changed their “story” after this presidential edict.
As for transparency, I have yet to hear back as to why LifeCare and its corporate parent were left out of the White House Lessons Learned report? One would think 24 patient deaths would mean top billing, but when one considers the “A list” of political insiders on the Carlyle roster, an omission looks more like a personal favor. My guess is their defense attorneys appreciate the “no mention” as they enter civil court for those wrongful death lawsuits. When did your Dad last do work for Carlyle?
