Iraq From The Vault #1

Cheney "Fail Quail" Shmeney. How about something that actually matters?

Dear Charlie,

"What profiteth it a man if he gain the world yet lose his soul?" Indeed. I would add that the loss of soul extends to the home front as well as the international.

Even as (in the argument du jour) Bush is championing the rights of the terrorized Iraqi populace, his administration is chipping away at the Bill of Rights piece by piece (ala the Patriot Act, failed legislation for the Total Awareness Project, a member of a congressional committee on terrorism stating that the internment of the Japanese during WWII was not such a bad thing). It is a scary national tone that is being set when a man in a shopping mall can be arrested for wearing a shirt that says "Give Peace a Chance."

Best Regards,
