Talk About Obscene--Rumsfeld's 9/11 Street Party
Talk About Obscene—Rumsfeld’s 9/11 Street Party

If you want something absolutely obscene, here it is: Pentagon to Host 9/11 March, Show.
This September 11th, will mark 4 years since that horrible mass murder took place. Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld and the rest of the chickenhawk neo-cons are going to “celebrate” by throwing a big street party with music provided by none other than Clint Black.
Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld & Co., Inc. are still trying to connect 9/11 and Iraq! This nation is being run by people that devoid and out of touch with reality. The only connection between 9/11 and Iraq is them. And the way things are looking right now, Bush/Cheney do not have clean hands about 9/11—I put nothing past these people, nothing.
A lot of blood is on their heads. Tens upon tens of thousands of Iraqi people; over, and I emphasize over, 1850 of this nation’s young people in uniform have been killed; according to the Air Force, over 55,000 have been medically evacuated out of Iraq since Bush/Cheney launched this “war of aggression” this “war against the peace” in Iraq.
Cindy Sheehan is camped out in Crawford, TX demanding that Bush interrupt his 50th vacation and answer a few “simple” questions she has regarding the death of her son, Casey, who was killed in Iraq. Reasonable; after all, it was Bush who sent Casey to Iraq, so why should he not answer the questions of Casey’s mother, Cindy? One of Cindy’s questions for Bush I feel is most reasonable: "And you tell me what the noble cause is that my son died for." And if he even starts to say "freedom and democracy," I'm gonna say "bullshit."
“You tell me the truth. You tell me that my son died for oil. You tell me that my son died to make your friends rich. You tell me my son died to spread the cancer of Pax Americana, imperialism in the Middle East. You tell me that, you don't tell me my son died for freedom and democracy.”
Kevin Benderman is doing 15 months in an Army jail because he took his oath seriously and refused to be a further participant in this Bush/Cheney war of aggression and war against the peace they launched in Iraq. Kevin saw first hand when he was in Iraq, the toll, the inhumanity of war. Kevin, as are a growing number in uniform, came to realize that he was not serving in the defense of this nation but was part of an invading, conquering Army. Kevin did the only thing a man of ethics, integrity, loyalty and honor could do; he refused a second deployment to Iraq. Kevin in fact had become a conscientious objector. The Army responded by putting him in prison.
Casey Sheehan is dead because he was killed in Iraq behind the lies, deliberate and continued deceptions of Bush/Cheney. Casey could have been your son; your brother; your husband as there are too many “Casey’s” coming back from Iraq. He was Cindy’s son and she wants answers from the man who sent Casey to be killed. So do I.
Kevin Benderman is in prison and his wife, Monica wants answers. Why does the military put in prison a man just because he refuses to kill?
And then I also think that Vanessa Langer, 23 years old, 4 months pregnant would have had a lot to say about Rumsfleds street party. Vanessa was on the 93rd floor of the south Tower when it came down. The last words she spoke to her mother were: “it o.k. mom, they told us to stay where we are, it’s safe.”
Obviously, there is a lot more that could be said here: But Rumsfeld is going to throw a street party.
