    As to straight lines, sometimes they are only as straight as the twists and turns one must ignore to see them.
    If you would have read the entire story, you would have learned that the replacement biographer said Mickey told him about it as well, and knew it to be true.

    You can keep your head under the covers or in the waves, its no skin off my back. One thing is certain, George Bush caused the US the loss of much credibility for attacking a country that had no connection to 9/11, but claiming that it did. Russia and China's surges in militarization followed on the heels of that, and they won't be letting up. The US has shown the world that it can and will abuse its power, but that's going to be a little more difficult going forward.


    It is clear that, even before 9/11, President Bush wanted Saddam Hussein out of power. President Clinton wanted Saddam Hussein out of power. But President Bush wanted it more, and in a more aggressive form. He said several times during the presidential campaign that he wanted Saddam Hussein out of power. He allied himself with people who thought that his father had made a mistake in not sending American troops during the first Gulf war onto Baghdad to take out Saddam Hussein.

    I'm familiar with all the memes that have been spread by those with an agenda. As to covers, perhaps dependence on "axes to grind" suggests the covers may be over someone else's head.

    Woodward has an agenda, lol. He too is quite the equal opportunity critic, no president has been immune to it. Just turn the light back off dude.

    Lights been on for a long time, dude. Perhaps you should exercise a bit more scrutiny to where you plug in yours.

    So considering Woodward's harsh criticisms of democratic presidents, you can't frame him as agenda driven, so just ignore that part.

    I haven't ignored anything. I find it amusing criticism of a President from another political party automatically qualifies someone as being unassailable. Interesting standard.

    Must be off. Thanks for the exchange.
