The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

More suspicions confirmed

This Sunday the CIA's head of covert operations in Europe appeared on 60 Minutes and basically said what we all knew was true: that everyone knew the uranium claims were bogus, that Bush knew that they knew, and that he went forward with his lie anyway. He also confirmed that Joe Wilson was not lying, that the Bush administration sucked up all intelligence which supported their pre-conceived rush to war, and ignored all intelligence which would not help them sell the urgency of our illegal invasion to the US public. You can see the salient parts of the video at Crooks&Liars.

Here is the interesting part. This guy told all of this to all of the committees who were supposed to be "investigating" Bush's war crimes. The Robb-Silverman Commission. The Roberts Committee (just part 1, of course). All of it points to war crimes, trumped up to support an illegal invasion, and our government has been covering for these criminals every step of the way. Josh Marshall concludes:

Now, quite a few of us have been arguing for almost two years now that those reports were fundamentally dishonest in the story they told about why we were so badly misled in the lead up to war. The fact that none of Drumheller's story managed to find its way into those reports, I think, speaks volumes about the agenda that the writers of those reports were pursuing.

"I was stunned," Drumheller told me, when so little of the stuff he had told the commission's and the committee's investigators ended up in their reports. His colleagues, he said, were equally "in shock" that so little of what they related ended up in the reports either.

What we know now is what we've long suspected. That these commissions knew that what Cheney/Rove did was illegal, immoral, and totally treasonous. And that they acted out what they saw as their mission: covering for this President's hide, covering up, covering up.
