    I've always believed that the US needs to create a foreign legion organized like the French Foreign Legion.

    I say we all let it slide. We must remember GW was a responsible conservative spender that never contracted to his friends for massive corporate profits. Obama is to blame.
    and so it goes...

    Ironic statement, since all the current administraion has done is blame their failures on the previous one.

    Also, as best as I can tell, even the author of the article admits that the information is not confirmed, just reported by two anonymous sources.

    So you think we should investigate Obama for the firing of Walpin?

    Why do people keep doing this. Let me reiterate my belief: If there is any credible evidence of corruption or lawbreaking by any of our public servants of either party, investigate, prosecute, and convict if the person is guilty. Obedience to laws and the public trust trumps any sense of partisan politics I might feel. I am, in this, 100 % consistent.

    Re: CIA terror link puts rebranded Blackwater under fire again

    Yes I do.

    And the firing of DAs during the Bush administration.

    I'm sick of "your wrong im right" BS. They should all be closely watched and held accountable.

    American...Some are not automatically innocent because others are guilty.

    What failures...the economy, the wars...what?

    1/8 of one term and Obama is already a failure. There must be no bias behind your statements.

    With all due respect for the Office, the man certainly has fallen hard on his face within just 8 months. Why must my statements reflect no bias, when your first post in this discussion was biased anti-Bush rhetoric? ...or have you been learning your "Do as I say, not as I do..." from the tax dodgers in government?

    You seem to be very sure of the guilt of the Bush administration when I've pointed out twice now that this story even admits to being unsubstantiated.

    It has about as much credibility at this point as the Obama Birther conspiracy.

    Does that mean I'm denying this is true? No. I'm simply saying that there's no point in you going off the deep end on what is essentially a media rumor at this point.

    LOL...as if Obama isn't doing the same thing. I bet you're not too worried about the no-bid contracts that Shaw Global got in New Orleans, either.

    Re: CIA terror link puts rebranded Blackwater under fire again

    Substantiated bias. I am indeed incorrect if these statements are false

    1) 4333 Americans died on the premise that Saddam had WMD's and was an immediate threat to our safety, while NK and Iran were not.

    2) The Bush administration gave no bid contracts to corporate entities with direct connections to the administration

    3) The Bush administration spent and awful lot of money for a "fiscal conservative"

    4) The Bush administration extended the rights limiting Patriot Act before midterm elections to ensure its passage

    5) GW cited a personal grudge for invasion of Iraq

    6) The Bush administration neglected patients at Walter Reed

    7) The Bush administration illegally fired US Attorneys

    8) Scooter Libby's "brush with the law"

    9) Bush's failed promise to get Osama "dead or alive"

    10) Illegal Wiretaps

    11) The fall of the dollar

    12) Torture of detainees

    13) No Child Left Behind

    I cant keep going if you'd like...
    and so it goes...
