And their priorities are...

Madness isn't just doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results; it's also standing by corrupt, criminal and incompetent assholes while ignoring real threats and real problems that lead to our nation being more vulnerable. While the Bush White House is defending Paul Wolfowitz and Alberto "I'm a clueless little storm trooper" Gonzales, six men tried to attack an army base in New Jersey, and a report has come out that the CIA failed to take action against Pakistani nuclear scientist A.Q. Khan, who is notorious for selling nuclear secrets to rogue regimes (including North Korea). Khan was able to get away with his proliferation activities because, as reported by Greg Palast, his ties to the Saudis earned him a kill order from the Bush regime on investigating his activities.

Fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers hailed from Saudi Arabia, and in the days following the attacks Bush & Co. had members of the bin Laden family flown out of the country for their protection. It was largely because of the regime's negligence and protection of long time friends and cronies that 9/11 was able to happen. And, it seems, that same protection of cronies has nearly allowed another attack on U.S. soil. That the Bush regime's priorities lie not with protecting the country, but with protecting those harming or seeking to harm it, should be enough to warrant impeachment.
