Bush Gets It All Wrong, All the Time

First, Bush should have prevented 9/11. The August 6, 2001 briefing was sufficiently specific to enable an ordinary executive to order armoring of airliner cockpits and thus prevent all hijackings. Bush, a Harvard Business School Graduate was evidently not up for that. He was on vacation and he stayed on vacation.

Second, once 9/11 happened, the first requirement was to identify the major weak spots in our systems and protect them. Included would be the following: transportation of people and goods; power plants, chemical and petroleum factories and refineries, storage tanks and pipelines; food production and distribution and water storage and distribution.

Instead, the Bush went to war, initiated major imprisonment and torture and started spying on us. (See today's NYTimes: "Bush Lets U.S. Spy on Callers Without Courts")

The net result is that we have lost our freedoms and are more vulnerable than ever to man-made and natural disasters.

What did we do to deserve George W. Bush?
