We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
In a broadcast designed to sound like a "smoking gun" Greg Palast of The Guardian breathily announced that "The Bush administration made plans for war and for Iraq's oil before the 9/11 attacks, sparking a policy battle between neo-cons and Big Oil!"
I watched your Bush/oil show for a while on BBC, but I think Michael Moore uses incomplete film clips, innuendo and a lack of facts more effectively. Is it bad that the US government made a series of alternate plans for the Iraqi oil industry?Is that worse than earlier accusations of it not having a plan? Having read the BBC web site article about your show and the evidence it discusses, I am left with a sense from the tone of the broadcast that you have made serious accusations of some sort, but try as I did, I cannot identify any substance.
Is it Mr Bush's actions that you find objectionable or is it merely his existence?
