Credibility, general? We don’t need no stinkin’ credibility. Get out there and make ‘em squirm!


So, the Pentagon, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush, and the hound dogs of the right (i.e. “Powerline”:http://www.powerlineblog.com and “the freepers”:http://www.freerepublic.com) got their panties all in a wad over the ??Newsweek?? story on the desecration of the ??Qu’ran??. Now the Pentagon “confirms”:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8090656/ several incidents of desecration, including some involving pissing on the ??Qu’ran??.

Do we have _any_ credibility left in the world? I mean, we are supposed to take the leadership role on human rights, and here we are engaging in, perhaps not to the same extent, the same practices we are warning other countries about.

America, this is what you voted for in November 2004. Time to reap what we’ve sown, and it’s not going to be pretty, I fear.

Can we please sow something else in 2006?
