The Oil Man Hideth


By Steve Cobble, HuffingtonPost

April, 2002--Bush & Blair get together in Crawford to cut the secret deal to go to war.

July, 2002--The Downing Street Minutes prove that Bush & Blair misled the public, "fixed" the intelligence, knew the case was "thin" that Iraq was a threat, understood that an invasion of Iraq was illegal, and prepared secretly to invade a country that was not involved with al Qaeda.

April, 2004--Two years later, Casey Sheehan is killed in Iraq. 1,800 others, and uncounted Iraqis, have shared his fate.

August, 2005--Cindy Sheehan bravely goes to Crawford to ask George W. to interrupt his 5-week vacation for a few minutes, so she can ask him exactly what "noble cause" it was for which her son gave his life.

But George W. remains in hiding. He's waiting for his "debate wire" to arrive before he ventures forth to do battle.

Rumor has it he's reading a biography of George W. (oops, that's George A.) Custer. It's slow going, but he's resolute that he'll finish the job.

Vacationing is hard work. It's hard.
