Hoffman appears to be one of the Limbaugh ditto heads who can ignore the meaning of the constitution and rule of law if it impinges on the Republican desire to dominate Iraqi to the benefit, by billions of dollars, of Halliburton and other American corporations, at the expense of our military and the taxpayers, not to mention U.S. status with other countries of the world.
In covering the Downing Street Minutes there was no need for her to blame Clinton (standard Faux News tactic, Hey, look over there, it's Clinton's fault!) for Bush's corruption or cite the laundry list of Saddam's activities. There was a need for her to comment on the reason the memo is getting attention.
In case she doesn't understand
it, please inform her that Bush mounted a conspiracy to lie to
congress, fix the facts around the policy and engage the right
wing propaganda media (of which she seems to be a proud member)
to pursuade Americans to engage in an illegal war. The story
that all this was chronicled in the media at the time does not
make it ok for Bush, Cheney, Powell, Rice, Rumsfeld, et al, to
lie to congress and the American People. Tell her that that's
still illegal, even if she doesn't understand it. Ask her also,
if, since she is so pro Bush, why she doesn't enlist in the military
and volunteer to go to Iraq? Her incompetence as a journalist
might be offset by her heroism in combat, although I suspect,
like Bush, she's a pretend-patriot who would go awol rather than
actually server her country.
