The Sheer Hypocrisy is Mind Boggling
We recently reported that the Boy King is ignoring the CIA's bleak outlook for Iraq because they are "just guessing." Strangely, when asked about the deteriorating condition yesterday the president expressed blind-faith in his source:
Q: And do you believe, given the situation on the ground and Fallujah and other northern cities in the Sunni triangle, that elections are possible in four months?So, let's get this straight. On one hand, the president writes off the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States of America because they are "just guessing." On the other, he completely endorses the position of his hand-picked Iraqi Prime Minister because he "told me" and "I believe him."
A: I do, because the prime minister told me they are. He's interested in moving this country forward. And you heard his statement. And I believe him.
Oh, by the way, here's what one Iraqi citizen had to say about the prime minister's statements:
What he's saying isn't even true. I can't even name an Iraqi city where there aren't clashes.Disgraceful. Just completely fucking disgraceful.
