The Nexus Of Evil

Josh has post up looking for the connection

Really, where the torture scandal could break open is the exact nexus of who actually authorized the program and Cheney’s frantic efforts to get information linking Saddam Hussein to the Iraq war.

This led me to look here which has the timelines of both incidents.

I think that in order for us to open the torture case up too wide it will start involving foreign powers that will really have a greater impact than any of the US memos being bandied about. Hence the need to keep it quiet.

It also has time lines for all sorts of other interesting scandals that the US government has been incapable of pursuing, and the information is all from reliable media accounts and reports.

You may wish to indulge yourself if you want to find out why your flag decals won’t get you into heaven any more. I’m sure most of you will opt for the ignorance is bliss defense.

Hypocrisy means

acting in a manner contradictory to one’s professed beliefs and feelings, or conversely, expressing false beliefs and opinions to conceal one’s real feelings or motives.[1][2] For example, it’s hypocritical for a smoker to criticize someone else for smoking tobacco. The term hypocrisy is often used in a religious context to refer to someone who gives a false appearance of virtue or religion, or does not “practice what he or she preaches”. Psychologically, hypocrisy can be an unconscious act of self-deception.
