I Bombed Afghanistan and All I Got Was Osama's Driver
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
Next time Bush does a phony PR op on the Hollywood Crawford Ranch Set, he might wear a T-shirt that says, “I Bombed Afghanistan To Rid The World Of Terrorists And All I Got Was Osama’s Driver.”
Because that’s pretty much the case.
After all, the Taliban are back in full resurgence, Afghanistan is experiencing record poppy (heroin) crops, Bush’s puppet “President” has said that all the American killing won’t stop terrorism and, of course, Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar are still at large.
If Bush is actually conducting a “war on terror,” Afghanistan is further proof that he is a spectacular failure.
That is why it is ironic that it in the usual hysterical Bushevik demagogic vow to hold military tribunals akin to Torquemada inquisitions, the news media has failed to emphasize that the “dangerous risk to the world terrorist” that was the focus of Hamdan vs. Rumsfeld was Osama’s driver.
That’s right, Bush promised to get Osama dead or alive and failed at both. Mullah Omar is still at large, presumably helping to lead a Taliban resurgence.
And all Bush has to show for his years of failed efforts to fight the “evil doers” is Osama’s chauffeur.
Bush says that if people like Salim Ahmed Hamdan, “an impoverished former taxi driver from Yemen who chauffeured Osama bin Laden around Afghanistan,” are released, the world will be at grave risk.
BuzzFlash thinks that if Hamdan were released, the biggest risk might be whether or not he could understand you when you get in his New York cab and you ask him to take you to Central Park.
It is beyond pathetic that the biggest trophy Bush has to try and declare a dire threat to the United States is a taxi driver.
The Hamdan vs. Rumsfeld case is both actually and symbolically important in understanding how bankrupt and disastrous Bush’s “War on Terrorism” has been.
It is a farce conducted for domestic political gain, not for the goal of making us more secure.
If Bush and Cheney are ever prosecuted for war crimes, BuzzFlash certainly doesn’t advocate prosecuting their drivers. Bush and Cheney are the responsible parties, along with their conspiring staffs.
Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar, among other key terrorists, are on the loose and Bush is focused on the right to UnConstitutionally frame a taxi cab driver.
Any American concerned about their safety should take a page from the Republican book and start firing salvos at the White House, the GOP Congress, and the Right Wing Echo chamber for conducting a failed war on terrorism that puts us all at risk.
Bush has spent America into bankruptcy enriching war profiteers and the only thing he can honestly emblazon on his T-shirt is: “I Bombed Afghanistan To Rid The World Of Terrorists And All I Got Was Osama’s Driver.”
