Still Criminally Clueless After All These Years, And Deaths
It's infuriating enough to see and read Bush back in the news, making glib speeches, a free man. Poor guy, he misses flying on Air Force One. But to hear him defend torture – "the information we got saved lives" – and talk of deriving solace from tearful meetings with the families of soldiers whose pointless deaths he caused – "it was very uplifting" – and cite "the fog of war" that these placid days he thinks about "at times" – it's too much. Which is worse: the crimes, or the obliviousness of them? It's a wonder he can sleep at night. And the ultimate injustice.
