This is Shameful

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this drivel. Ari Fleischer, former press secretary for George W. Bush, has been busy spending $15 million on a reprehensible TV commercial campaign in support of the Iraq quagmire. He is the spokesman for a group, ironically called, Freedom's Watch.

The ads are aimed at 20 U.S. states they feel still have luke-warm support for the Iraqi occupation. States that have republican Congress members who are no longer standing behind Bush 100%. The ads are to scare them back into the fold. Again, the ads are aimed at republican held know they are in trouble when they are attacking their own.

Check out the baseless reference to the 9/11 attacks. It was established years ago that Iraq/Saddam Hussein had NOTHING to do with 9/11. How many Iraqis were in the planes that hit 9/11???

This is all about fear. Keep 'em scared and the Bush administration can continue to take the country down a horribly destructive path.

Here is the video, brought to you by the White House err Freedom's Watch:

Here is an interview with Fleischer about the ad campaign and a rebuttal by an Iraq war veteran. Watch him squirm as he is asked questions that weren't pre-approved by the White House.

Fleischer didn't even know the soldiers name...ugh. The soldier is nothing but a political prop.
