The Mess He Left Behind


And what do you suppose the terrorists were doing while Little Georgie Bush (age 7) was busy breaking things in Iraq?

(Newser) – Bubonic plague is believed to have wiped out dozens of al-Qaeda recruits at a terror training camp in Algeria, the Daily Mail reports. The epidemic came to light when security forces found a militant’s diseased body dumped on a roadside. Security sources say the plague forced the group to turn its hideout into a mass grave and flee, possibly infecting other terror cells. Some experts speculate that the deaths occurred as the cell was attempting to develop biological weapons.

But he kept us safe!

Black Death Wipes Out al-Qaeda Camp in Algeria [Newser]

I call bullshit. If these bozos got pnuemonic plague (thats the only kind thats easily transmissible and kills quickly), we gave it to them, and thats IF there is any truth to this story.

I’m still reeling from the fact that there’ve been no surprise pardons. I was really dreading last Friday’s Left Coast 5:00 pm news–I was expecting a final “Fuck you, America” from the Chimperor. And nothing!

Either Bush and Co. already know that they’re never gonna be held responsible for their crimes, or they’re even more delusional than we thought.

Oh and this is hee-larious:

BREAKING: Bush Pardons Osama bin Laden
by David Rees

WASHINGTON, DC: In a stunning late-hour development, President George W. Bush has granted Osama bin Laden a pardon for the murder of more than 2,700 Americans in the fall of 2001.

“This kinda came out of nowhere,” said a White House aide who requested anonymity. “I wouldn’t have put bin Laden on the short list myself. On the other hand, maybe this is the president’s way of finding closure. Because … y’know … he wasn’t actually able to kill bin Laden, or capture him, or even keep him from making all those (expletive) videos. I mean, jeez, let’s face it: Osama bin Laden is basically a one-man Netflix of cave movies.”

The aide paused, then went on to say, “Can you believe this dude (Bush) was actually president for eight (expletive) years? What were we thinking? Seriously, what the (expletive) were we thinking?”

The aide began weeping quietly. “May God have mercy on me for my role in the unfathomable travesty that was the Bush administration.”

Conservative columnist William Kristol insisted the pardon made sense.

“George W. Bush is a brilliant strategist. I’m sure he has a good reason for this pardon. I’ll figure it out.”

Kristol sucked his thumb for a few minutes, lost in thought. He was then distracted by a brightly colored piece of string.

A passerby, told of the bin Laden pardon, offered a possible explanation:

“Maybe Bush is trying to smoke him out. Wasn’t that the plan?”

The term “Little Georgie Bush” gives me the creeps. It sounds like a pet name he might have for a part of his anatomy.

We still get the plague here in New Mexico, as well as hantavirus.

@Tommmcatt Yet Again: He’s in Waco now. Is that pronounced like “whacko?”

@redmanlaw: Yeah but 40 dead? Thats like rampaging Ebola, either this story is BS, or they were playing with weaponized pnuemonic plague, highly unlikely, if they had that capacity, they would also be able to get medical treatment, or we unleashed it on them. Maybe, just maybe, they bought a weapon on the black market, opened it up? Thats plausible, but scary. Maybe we pretended to be a black market arms dealer and sold it to them, that would be sweet.

@Promnight: …opened it up?
Johnny don’t pick that scab …

I also call bullshit.
I suspect Weekly World News. I’ll bet that BatBoy infected them with his bite. I’m so glad that Chimpy enlisted him in the war on Terra.

So does anyone know what the Executive order President Hope issued regarding Guantanamo Bay?

All I’m hearing is that he issued one. I assume it’s to close it, but he wouldn’t need an executive order for that, would he?

@CheapBoy: No “official” order that I’ve heard, but Gitmo prosecutors are canceling all trials until explicit instruction from the White House, or something like that.

Ah, it was an order to stop the ‘Trials’ down there.

@CheapBoy: WaPo sez Barry ordered (or requested) the suspension after all. The story trickled out as an unsourced leak, but now he’s owning up to it.

NPR said this morning that it was a 120 day halt to war crimes proceedings at Gitmo. I’m too lazy to look up a link, but I assume that will become clear with the passage of time.
