Dissent is Treason

Welcome to the world of Bush's mind:
"While it's perfectly legitimate to criticize my decisions or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how the war began," Bush said.
Full article.

Let's review:

The Administration drove us to war on twisted and often bogus evidence. They created fictionalized reasons to go to war.

After WMDs were not found, the administration, without skipping a beat, revised recent history, and claimed that the war had always been about bringing democracy to the Middle East.

Now that the public has soured on the war, the administration's strategy is to accuse critics of the war of rewriting history.

I am trying to get my head around it. It's like some kind of Gordian knot.

What hasn't changed: If you challenge this administration, you are aiding the enemy: "The attempts by Democratic lawmakers and others to rewrite history are demoralizing U.S. troops and encouraging their radical Islamic foes, Bush said."

Right. Do you want to be encouraging our radical Islamic foes? You better shut up and stop asking questions about how we ended up in Iraq. Keep paying your taxes, keep giving us your sons and daughters, don't ask how many have died, or what we are doing over there. Trust us.
