That didn't take long -- validation of O'Neill's charges

January 12, 2004 2:14 PM

Bush is full on attacking Paul O'Neill -- through the Treasury Department -- while publicly dancing around the actual charges O'Neill leveled last night that Bush started planning the Iraq invasion in January 2001 (not after 9/11). Treasury has officially asked for an investigation into the 19,000 papers O'Neill took with him because one of them shown on 60 Minutes "appeared to be classified."

Politics 101: when you can't attack the charges, you attack the messenger. In a way, this is an implicit admission that O'Neill is telling the truth.

I wonder if he can qualify for whistleblower protection?

My God!

Repeat a rumor enough times and it has to be true. At no point did Bush ever claim there was a connection between 9-11 and Saddam (however the London Telegraph seems to have established that definate link). Would it not be PRUDENT to have plans of action against a nation that espouses "Death to America" and the previous beloved adminstration had on more then one occassion found cause to launch cruise missiles into? Is it the democrat party way to wait until a scandle about who gave who a BJ before making war plans?

Sorry friend ... not sure if your a Brit or a Yank, but I watched Bush on TV not only link, but do it in a way which could of linked my Grandmother to al-Qaeda ... its called `Fear of Fear' ... so get a clue and realize that over half of the US popualtion did not vote for this 5-4 Supreme Court-Elected President - something we hope to remedy shortly, that is if the Southern White boys start realizing that this guy is not their buddy - but only the deliverer of the largest `Cash and Carry' government that has existed since the Harding Administration - long-time South Carolina Sen. Fritz Hollings got that on the nailhead ... Ozzy
