War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength     

—  George Orwell, “1984”

Bush is President.

It’s official. Sixteen US government security agencies agree. The experts conclude that Bush’s war against Iraq is the major force driving the global growth of Islamic terror, but their dire finding is supposed to be a state secret to be perpetually concealed from the American people.

Before the invasion of Iraq, the US had Al-Qaida cornered in Afghanistan and Pakistan, marginalized, ostracized and corralled into a finite ghetto for mad Mullahs only. Today, after three and a half years of war, five hundred billion dollars of treasure, nearly three thousand dead American soldiers and at least one hundred thousand dead Iraqi civilians we have done nothing more than make matters worse, infinitely worse. Bush’s Iraq misadventure has been the most counterproductive policy in American history.

The National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) was compiled in April 2006, but its release was suppressed when the White House learned of its contents. Worse, President Bush, Vice President Cheney and Madame Secretary Condoleezza Rice continued to lie about the results of their failed policy. Now that the NIE report titled “Trends in Global Terrorism” has been leaked, we know that they have been lying, and they have been lying the big, big lie.:

This pathetic regime has been unmasked as the spitting image of the dystopian tyranny in George Orwell’s prophetic novel, 1984, a fascist dictatorship organized under three sacred dictums

Ignorance is strength.

War is peace.

Freedom is slavery.
