Terrorism Starts At Home

If you really want to fear for your life and worry that the future may hold dire and deadly consequences, then you don't need to go all the way to the middle east for the source. You don't need any scary Al Qaeda secret cells or suicide bombers.

All you need is one of the Bush Administration superstars to show you how completely and mind-numbingly clueless they are about the issues they're in charge of that your life and your family's life may depend on.

In case you don't know, the ass clown in charge of FEMA, the Federal Emergency management Agency, is Mike Brown, and he was all over television today - CNN, MSNBC, Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC - you name it.

And everywhere he appeared he stuck his foot deeper and deeper into his mouth. He literally deep throated his own loafer.

Basically he blamed the people who are now suffering in New Orleans for not evacuating and causing their own problems. Here's what he said:

"Unfortunately, that's going to be attributable a lot to people who did not heed the advance warnings," Brown told CNN. I don't make judgments about why people chose not to leave but, you know, there was a mandatory evacuation of New Orleans," he smuggly told them. "Now, I don't want to second guess why they did that. My job now is to get relief to them."
He was so blind to reality that it was painful to watch. He was so blatantly ignorant that even the reporters woke up to grill him. He said all these things right after live coverage of dead people littering the streets, shots of starving, dehydrated senior citizens and babies who looked half dead.

But I'm glad he came out of the closest, because the truth is he is saying exactly what the President thinks. And he's responding exactly the way Bush wants him too. That's why Bush plucked his worthless ass out of industry and put him in charge of an agency he has already proved he can't run.

Now try and imagine this man being in charge when there's a dirty bomb set off in L.A. harbor, or there's a chemical or biological attack anywhere in the United States. Where shall we stack those dead bodies?

On MSNBC today he actually said he only learned earlier today that there were people at the Convention Center and that he was surprised they were there.

He also said this:
"Considering the dire circumstances that we have in New Orleans -- virtually a city that has been destroyed -- that things are going relatively well," Brown said.
Frankly if that doesn't scare the shit out of you then you've seen too many Wes Craven movies.

New Orleans is literally in chaos. Only heartless politicians would ever claim otherwise.

There's a fool proof, time tested and 100% accurate way to tell which politicians are guilty in situations like this. They are the ones who, when asked who is responsible say, "now is not the time for finger pointing or fixing blame, there will be plenty of time for that later."

We should have learned with both 9-11 and Iraq that the time to ask questions and hold people responsible is immediately, while the actions they are guilty of are happening for all to see. Not after the fact when the fix is in, the spin has been spun and the propaganda and coverups have done their jobs.

Here's another thing Mike Brown of FEMA said today on CNN:
"Now is not the time to be blaming," Brown said. "Now is the time to recognize that whether they chose to evacuate or chose not to evacuate, we have to help them."
I'll tell you what now is the time for. Now is the time to get this cast of in-over-their-heads, not up to the jobs, not smart enough for the task, inept types out of the jobs they have proven they cannot do based on the results.

That list starts today with Brown from FEMA, it easily includes the new head of Homeland Security - HOW'S THAT FOR AN OXYMORON THESE DAYS? - Michael Chertoff. It obviously includes Donald "Your kids died for Iraq's new Islamic Republic" Rumsfeld, and of course Mr. "Bring It On, Mission Accomplished" himself, the incredibly shrinking Bush.

If the thought of this collection of fuck ups being in charge for two more years of terror doesn't horrify you then that's because you've already given up all hope, duck taped yourself into your house and kissed your ass goodbye.
