Keith Olbermann on 9/11

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Keith Olbermann’s comments on 9/11 have been all over the web for days, and with good reason. Crooks and Liars has the video and the transcript. The choicest nuggets, not surprisingly, focus on the miserable failure of the Bush administration:

They promised bi-partisanship, and then showed that to them, "bi-partisanship" meant that their party would rule and the rest would have to follow, or be branded, with ever-escalating hysteria, as morally or intellectually confused; as appeasers; as those who, in the Vice President’s words yesterday, "validate the strategy of the terrorists."

They promised protection, and then showed that to them "protection" meant going to war against a despot whose hand they had once shaken… a despot who we now learn from our own Senate Intelligence Committee, hated Al-Qaeda as much as we did.

The polite phrase for how so many of us were duped into supporting a war, on the false premise that it had ’something to do’ with 9/11, is "lying by implication."

The impolite phrase, is "impeachable offense."

We need more impoliteness.
