Maybe President John Kerry will urge Attorney General John Edwards to launch an investigation which may result in the prosecution of Rumsfeld et al. for tampering with evidence and grave robbing.
It is a small example, but one nonetheless of why these Rpublicans think they are "above" everyone else. They think, sure, there are laws against pilfering these pieces, but why should they apply to "us."
WhomMe?, you mean like:
"I'm the commander - see, I don't need to explain - I don't need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being the President. Maybe somebody needs to explain to me why they say something, but I don't feel like I owe anybody an explanation."
- George W. Bush, Washington Post, 11-19-02
This one got me: "The report discloses that among the items taken, agents had cut World Trade Center security patches from the sleeves of shirt pieces found in the rubble."
I am no psychiatrist, but here goes. Most of these Republicans are chickenhawks. (Who can name one prominent Republican who was a Vietnam combat veteran?) Every bully (which they definitely are) is a coward deep down within. These tokens of disaster are a way for them to vicariously experience disaster and, in their own mind, display an ersatz sense of courage.
They exhibit the same kinds of psychoses of those twisted people that rent the "Faces of Death" videos. Ghoulish indeed.
That is all just plain nasty. Just sick.
Let's boot these thugs and graverobbers out of office.
