Scott Ritter Nails Rove, Cheney and the Dems

Scott Ritter, chief United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq 1991-1998 and later critic of the Iraq war, cuts through the confusion, propaganda and misdirection to nail the distinct roles in our current catastrophe played by Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Congressional Democrats.

On Rove:

Being the Brain of the most vapid, intellectually shallow president ever creates an apt epitaph for Rove's tenure at the White House.

On Cheney:

The vice president is the single greatest threat to American and international security in the world today.

On the Democrats:

These Democrats ... have mastered the art of compromise to the point that they stand for nothing at all-this at a time in American history when the policies of the administration, derived from the dark abyss of Bush's soul, Cheney, provide the most concrete example of what we as Americans should be standing against.

And in conclusion:

If there is any case for impeachment to be made against any member of the Bush administration today, it can be made against a vice president who has shamed our nation, destroyed our moral standing and broken our laws.

Read the whole thing for the full fog-dispersing effect.
