"Alleged War Criminal Throws..."

“Alleged War Criminal Throws Party Attended By Washington Elite and Other Scum!”

How’s that for a headline? It seems to me the criminal insanity that grips this country’s government grows worse every day. I guess well over half of Washington’s insiders know that Cheney and Rumsfeld—not to mention Bush, Kissinger (you know he was in on it, one way or the other), and various other upper level members of the administration) committed crimes against humanity with the invasion of Iraq. But, in the world of geo-politics, what’re a few war crimes among friends?

Well, it’s a shrinking circle of friends, and it’s pretty highly localized, and that means things could shift. If the rest of the world would stop acting as if God chose the US to run things, there could well be a series of trials that would remind many many people of post-WW2 Germany. The world is changing, gradually—so gradually that I don’t think I’ll live to see the outcomes I foresee—but the changes don’t bode well for the US. Latin America is running in the other direction, toward some sort of social justice. Right: that’s the opposite direction from the one taken by this country. America is becoming more and more isolated; resentments are turning to outrage over this country’s behavior. We’re gobbling 25% of the world’s resources, confusing greed with moral standing. But various people, well-invested in the status quo, can’t see the writing on the wall. Or they won’t look—I think that’s closer to the truth. The writing’s there, but they won’t look….

Borat wasn't on the list, but at least one product of Kazakhstan managed to gain access to Vice President Dick Cheney's holiday party on Tuesday night at his Massachusetts Avenue residence.

Snow Queen vodka, a product of the central Asian country, was the "official liquor donor" at the 400-strong party of high-powered pols and their staffers. Among those on the list who braved the "blinding" lights on Mass Ave. and the long security procedure to rub elbows with the Veep: Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Afghan Ambassador Said Jawad, Jordanian Ambassador Karim Kawar, former Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rima Al-Sabah, wife of the Kuwaiti ambassador.
