New signs of our Old Warnings: How much clearer can it Be ? We are run by Idiots!

Our soldiers bushwhacked by their trainees. I was appalled when I found this out! You can bet there was Bush politics behind this and of course still no mention of this and all interference with this coming out will be denied.Bush himself has already lied many times in every regard but in this case saying he has no control over the Pentagon. Yeah right!

The Pentagon waited nine months after completing an investigation into the deaths of two U.S. soldiers before notifying relatives the men were killed by Iraqi troops, the military acknowledged Wednesday.
According to Sen. Barbara Boxer, She called the nine-month delay troubling. "If the American people knew that the people we are directly helping train turned on our soldiers, support for this war would slip," Boxer said. "It's very disturbing to think that the Pentagon might be told to keep this kind of thing close to the vest.

Yes we do find the time gap very disturbing. Many of us take it as another underhanded behind the scenes manipulation of the facts by Bushco. What were they waiting for? were they waiting for the retired Generals call to pull out to die down? Were we waiting for a so called success like killing Zarqawi? How about the finding of chemical WMD's much touted today by Repubs with no mention of Iraqi trainees killing their trainers our soldiers.

A Pentagon spokesman confirmed Boxer's timetable on Wednesday,2933,200499,00.html

"There was a time gap, no doubt about it," Army spokesman Paul Boyce said. "The Army regrets any delay in notifying the family, and we took immediate steps to do so once those facts were determined." What a lie! They just got through saying they finished the investigation 9 months ago. Read on! There were witnesses and it was a lot worse than friendly fire. These were cold calculated assassinations!

A cadre of high-ranking officers personally apologized to the mother of one soldier for the delay Wednesday, but didn't provide much new information, Nadia McCaffrey said.

One mother said "The most stunning thing I saw and heard today was that I told them some of the details that I had almost since the day my son was killed, and they didn't have any idea about it. They didn't know. They had never heard of it," she said. Sounds to me like they acted stupid! Dummy up sounds familiar!

Soldiers who witnessed the attack have told Nadia McCaffrey two Iraqi patrolmen opened fire on her son's unit. The witnesses also said a third gunman simultaneously drove up to the American unit in a van, climbed onto the vehicle and fired at the Americans, she said.

Iraqi forces who had trained with the Americans had fired at them twice before the incident that killed Patrick McCaffrey, and he had reported it to his superiors, Nadia McCaffrey said.

If you read the link you know it gets worse. The reality is that Iraqi's we are training to kill insurgents are killing us. What does thet tell you? That tells me the job is done time to pull out and watch for a while. See how bad they want their Democracy.

Knowing this and how bad things really are in Iraq and they will be getting worse. You have to wonder why the Repugs refuse to act responsibly. The Senate voted down a Dem non binding resolution to request troop withdrawal with no timetable for the wars end. Of the two resolutions today I would say that was a responsible one but was turned down 60-39. Find out how your Senator voted. See how your Senators voted on this amendment.

* A reminder! No mention of our soldiers being bushwhacked by their trainees. No mention of Al Zawahiri's request to repel the Infidels and the already increasing insurgency!.

One last note! We are and will not win anything this way, This is still just getting started.
Most Americans want a withdrawal in some form. The Repug senate does not! That should tell you they still do not work for us and act according, so must you in the fall!
