I never paid much attention in politics, until the first republican led, U.S. President was appointed, in 2000. A few years later, my wife and I made a trip to Washington D.C., then we went to visit The Pentagon and New York Twin Tower Destruction. I heard about 3000 people were killed, in New York; but none were killed in The Pentagon.
I flew an airplane in 1968 and learned distance on take off and landing. I could tell it was impossible to land a jumbo jet on a very short distance between the Pentagon and a bridge! George W. Bush decided to attack and bombshell Iraq without any hard evidence, Iraq was not a threat to the U.S.
After 9-11, several war contracts were awarded by the Pentagon without sufficient preparation to handle the enormous numbers of contracts the Pentagon has tripled funding since 911, $50 billion to 140 billion of U.S. tax payers money. War is a money racket and several retired generals were allowed Pentagon war contracts.
John McCain was interviewed by NBC Lisa Myers, about failure, fraud and one billion dollars wasted money, The Pentagon awarded a contract to, “Computer Science Corporation,” with the idea to save money, with the U.S. Air Force system. With a smile, John McCain said, The money went down the drain, “Computer Science Corporation,” will never be punished. John McCain voted for the “Bush-tax-cuts” to companies that make million or billions!
CIA nominee John Brennan, told Carl Levin(D) Mich; “Water Boarding” Should have never been employed! My opinion “waterboarding” is a violation of the Geneva Convention. Again, the cost to U.S. taxpayers money going down the drain! With nothing to benefit U.S. taxpayers who make less than $250,000.
George W. Bush sent $6.6 billion taxpayers money, to Iraq for reconstruction in Iraq. Then the money came up mission. Iraq president, Ali Maliki said, he did not know where the money went!
The cost of the Iraq and Afghanistan war, U.S. will spend $3.7 trillion taxpayers money and still no peace in these two countries. Can you imagine how many barrels of oil can be bought with that money and nobody would have to die in these two wars.
George W. Bush wrote a book, “Decision Points” and Dick Cheney wrote one “In Our Time.” How can George W. Bush sleep at night knowing, he created a United States, “Self Inflicted Wound,” to taxpayers. And mismanagement of taxpayers money?
George W. Bush said, “I enjoyed those eight years, I was in office!”
