Former Bush staffer now backing Kerry

Not that I back Kerry or Bush, but I seem to remember waay back when when there was NO war on terror.  Even though eastern and western Europe were getting their shiznit handed to them every other week or so by some fanatic, the Beltway seemed to ignore it as Europe’s problem.  But then some fanatics blew up our Ivory Towers in NYC back in 2001.  It became our war then.  It’s just like those dangerous intersections that aren’t REALLY dangerous until some rich or priviledged kid gets creamed on that corner that people start paying attention. 

T.W.A.T is a joke, just like 911 (Public Enemy reference) and the T.W.O.D. (the war on drugs)

Like Bob Marley sings to this day, “Don’t let dem fool you.  Oh Noo.”

A few days before the start of the March 2003 Iraq war Beers was President Bush’s special assistant for combatting terrorism and ready to leave the administyration. “I think I have to quit. ... I can’t work for thesepeople. I’m sorry, I just can’t,” he told his longtime friend Dick Clarke.

WASHINGTON—Randy Beers sat on the porch steps next to his longtime friend and colleague Dick Clarke and the words came tumbling out in a torrent. “I think I have to quit. ... I can’t work for these people. I’m sorry, I just can’t.”
It was a few days before the start of the Iraq war in March 2003, and Beers was President Bush’s special assistant for combating terrorism, a job he had held for only a matter of months. But Beers was no newcomer to government; he had worked on foreign policy for four presidents.
