The Afghanistan thing is just STUPID. In general I dont believe in conspiracies. I do believe in stupidity and arrogance, and in the case of Iraq, I feel there were huge doses of both on the part of the administration. I also have serious questions about Haliburton, not as a conspiracy, but simply from the point of view of favoritism. Joe Grossberg June 30, 2004 I’m glad you pointed out these parallels. A lot of right-wingers were so overcome with hatred for Clinton that they would even jump to the defense of child-raping cultists (Waco) and white supremacists (Ruby Ridge) in their zeal to bash the Administration. Many liberals show a similar lack of sensibility when they don’t mind siding with enemy combatants (Gitmo) and dictators (Iraq) if it affords them the opportunity to bash GWB. And the same goes for the knee-jerk defensiveness of many presidential supporters. If it was so compelling to release the information about that shady little land deal of Whitewater, then you bet your ass we should know the extend of the administration’s ties with Enron and the companies awarded contracts in Afghanistan and Iraq.

My idea of a conspiracy is shaddowy figures who dont sign their post with valid emails and troll by for a snipe every now and then. I love it.
