Turning On The Gas
Am I surprised that this isn't being reported on any major American news sources? Not at all.
Basically, the military wants to add a Death Row to Camp X-Ray. And, remember, the people being held there get no trial or appeal. How many legitimate American citizens are locked up down there on suspicion alone? No one knows because the Administration won't even release the names of those in custody in the interests of National Security.
Are the allusions to 1939 getting a little clearer now, folks?
"I am NOT a doe-eyed naif!!!!"
Let the propaganda commence. A Canadian movie in pre-production dramatizes the events of September 11, 2001 from the P.O.V. of our fearless leader, which reads more like the script for Air Force One II: The President Strikes Back. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the producer is a former Bush staffer who works on behalf of Karl Rove to counter the pop culture image of G.W.
Classic line from the script: "If some tinhorn terrorist wants me, tell him to come and get me! I'll be at home! Waiting for the bastard!"
I suddenly find myself reminded of that routine Eddie Murphy did in Raw, where he & Deney Terrio punch some crazy Italian guy in a club and the dude just laughs - "Come On! That's the way I like it!!!!"
