God Save America

We have all seen the "God Bless America" stickers on cars.

It's time for a change.

The prayer we should be sending up to God should be a sincere request to save us from the ever present incompetence of the Bush/Cheney Administration.

Today's NYTimes, on page A8 carries a story entitled "U.S. Lacks Plan to Curb Terror Funds, Agency Says." Here are the first two paragraphs:

WASHINGTON, Nov. 28 - The government's efforts to help foreign nations cut off the supply of money to terrorists, a critical goal for the Bush administration, have been stymied by infighting among American agencies, leadership problems and insufficient financing, a new Congressional report says.

More than four years after the Sept. 11 attacks, "the U.S. government lacks an integrated strategy" to train foreign countries and provide them with technical assistance to shore up their financial and law enforcement systems against terrorist financing, according to the report prepared by the Government Accountability Office, an investigative arm of Congress.

On page A27 in the same issue of the NYTimes, we see an op-ed piece entitled, "Think Inside the Box." The first paragraph follows.

THIS week President Bush will seek to focus the nation's attention on border security and immigration reform. But the president's proposals won't protect Americans from our gravest cross-border threat: the possibility that a ship, truck or train will one day import a 40-foot cargo container in which terrorists have hidden a dirty bomb or nuclear weapon.

God Save America.
