I was reading the editorial yesterday in the Danville Advocate and agreed with it completely. We must have hearings to find out why the president of the United States was given faulty information that resulted in going to war in Iraq.
Who gave him this information? Why is Halliburton making such a fortune on no-bid contracts even after they have been caught overcharging the government to the tune of $61 million transporting gasoline from Kuwait into Iraq? Why aren't these executives facing criminal charges? What kind of corporate culture did Dick Cheney foster at Halliburton? Why did President Bush tie 9/11 to Iraq when everyone knew that there were no connections? Why are 520 Americans dead because of this lie? Six more brave soldiers were killed yesterday. Why did the president get permission to raid Social Security to the tune of $87 billion to rebuild Iraq?
I hope people start paying attention before its too late. I also hope that they will vote for Ben Chandler in this upcoming election. We need to restore democracy in America, and our best hope in doing that starts with the special election in February.
