Still a Shill

By Creature

In a speech delivered Saturday night to the NRA retired General Tommy Franks declared war on his old buddies in the White House...
"I watched as America changed," Franks said. "That's not near done. We have to secure ourselves. We have to secure our Constitution."

I wish. Unfortunately that was Franks, not being frank. The former general continues to cast Iraq, and the American deaths in Iraq, as part of the global war on terror.

"What we're talking about is neither 2,400, 24,000 or 240,000 lives," Franks said at the National Rifle Association's annual banquet. "Terrorism is a thing that threatens our way of life. It doesn't have anything to do with politics." [Read More]

Except, Mr. Franks, your boys Bush, Rummy, and Cheney have used terrorism for political gain. They have used terrorism to justify the war. They have used terrorism at every turn to trample on the Constitution you believe the troops are fighting for in Iraq.

One would think the Kool-Aid the would have worn off by now.
