Sunday Morning with Helen Thomas

Red text is the"real" headline buried in the news.
Blue text is my own commentary.
Violet text is the blog quote of the day.

The Grand Damme of the Presidential Press Corps speaks volumes in very few words this morning; from her opinion piece in the Seattle PI;
The Bush administration has a mess (and a lot of innocent blood) on its hands in the Middle East, due to its inept policies in Iraq and Palestine. As the president continues to muddle along, Congress and the American people remain incredibly mute, marking time. Real time for Congress is September when Army Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. commander in Iraq, is due to give a definitive report on the progress of the war there. The critical time for many people is 2009, when a new president may come to the rescue. The invasion and unprovoked occupation of Iraq is now in its fifth year and is projected by some generals to last for 10 more years. The perennial Palestinian dispute has become more explosive through sheer neglect. President Bush brags that he is the only president who has proposed an independent Palestinian state -- but he has done little to achieve his goal. And his unabashed pro-Israeli approach has made compromise difficult, to put it mildly. A couple of months before Bush decided to implement his unilateral agenda by attacking Iraq and deposing Saddam Hussein in 2003, an Arab diplomat told me that the president would be putting his finger in a hornet's nest if he pursued his aggressive goals in the region. That prediction has come through in spades. Thousands of Iraqis and Americans are dead; thousands more wounded and about 2 million Iraqis have fled to seek refuge in Syria and Jordan. Both countries have been kind enough to set up camps for them. What a tragedy we have with this war to nowhere. http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/opinion/320933_thomas24.html
