À bas la tyrannie!


Anyone want to take a stab at who invested $43 million in the Taliban in the months leading up to 9/11?

Check out the answer at a vintage article at The Nation.

Then stop at Mimi's to bring things a bit more up to date.

h/t to Brandon Friedman and, before him, to Chris LeJeune.

Facts are so inconvenient.

are they even embarrassed?

I think they're established track record demonstrates incorrigible shamelessness.

I presume the article is dated in error. Dubya hadn't yet stolen the Presidency in May of 2000.

Susankay, I am certain you are quite right.

Shame? Embarrassment? They don't know what that is. That's for other people. The bastards. There. I said it.

Grandmère, you are too kind. But I know we try to keep our blogs civil. Words do not fail me but I am trying to avoid apoplexy these days, so the less I say the less likely a heart attack. (No, fear not, my health is fine. But when I begin speaking of Bush or Cheney or their enables I give a very good imitation of someone about to burst veins.)
