Tillman: "Criminals Still in Charge"

Were truer words ever spoken?.... from someone who has been there.

"Pat Tillman's Brother Blasts Iraq War, Bush." You remember Pat Tillman, the pro football player who quit to become an Army Ranger after 9/11.... and how the Army concocted a "heroic" story to propagandize his death before finally telling Tillman's family that he had been accidently killed by "friendly fire" from his fellow Army Rangers.

His brother, Kevin Tillman, also served as an Army Ranger in Iraq and Afghanistan. He recently spoke out for the first time since his brother's death in 2004.... "Somehow, the same incompetent, narcissistic, virtueless, vacuous, malicious criminals are still in charge of this country. Somehow, this is tolerated. Somehow, nobody is accountable for this." (WaPo)

Were truer words ever spoken? We're watching right now The Decider's campaign spinning of the Iraq civil war as terrorism, pledging to "stay the course" while our brave troops continue to die.... this is tolerating the intolerable.

Now is the time to step up, to hold the incompetent, narcissistic, virtueless, vacuous, malicious Bush administration and Congressional enablers accountable. To say "enough" .... November.
