Old news, new perspective

1//Arab News Tuesday, 19, August, 2003 (21, Jumada ath-Thani, 1424) http://www.arabnews.com/?page=7&section=0&article=30536&d=19&m=8&y=2003

IDIOT OR LIAR? EITHER WAY, BUSH IS UNFIT FOR OFFICE
John V. Whitbeck o Special to Arab News
John V. Whitbeck is an international lawyer.

JEDDAH, 19 August 2003 - On July 25, President George W. Bush made a truly staggering statement to the press after a meeting with UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan: "The fundamental question is, did Saddam Hussein have a weapons program?

And the answer is, absolutely. And we gave him a chance to allow inspectors in, and he wouldn't let them in. And therefore, after a reasonable request, we decided to remove him from power, along with other nations, so as to make sure he was not a threat to the United States and our friends and allies in the region."

This statement is worth reading carefully. The president of the United States has stated, in a public forum, that he invaded Iraq because Saddam Hussein would not allow weapons inspectors back into his country.

So far as I am aware, this statement has not been the subject of any serious critical analysis in the mainstream American media.

I will therefore provide my own brief analysis.

Assuming, as seems reasonable, that the president of the United States was neither drunk nor on LSD, there can be only two possible explanations for this statement:

Explanation 1: The president of the United States believed what he said. In this case, he is so dim-witted and/or totally divorced from reality as to be mentally unfit to hold his current job - or, indeed, any job - and should be taken into medical care.

Explanation 2: The president did not believe what he said but, rather, believes (unfortunately not without compelling post-Sept.11 evidence) that the vast majority of the American people are so dim-witted and/or uninformed and the vast majority of the American media is so sycophantic and/or terrified of being branded "unpatriotic" (or simply losing White House "access") that he can now tell any lie, no matter how obvious and outrageous, and get away with it. In this case, he is morally unfit to hold his current job and should, by constitutional means, be forced to relinquish it as soon as possible.

Either explanation should scare the wits out of anyone who is not comatose.

Actually, old news, old perspective.  But a great point worth reiterating, nonetheless.  :wink:

What is he on? 7/16/03

Yah - but I just liked the Explanation 1 and Explanation 2.

I'm personally voting for #1
