Well, that's because train wrecks get people killed and the "enormous successes" typically don't.
What were the "enormous successes", anyway, besides splitting Halliburton's stock about a half a dozen times over?
Be among the few, the proud, the laid. Out of California comes this story about a Marine recruiter who pimped a 14 year-old child to lure recruits. The girl was found in a car with the Marine recruiter and two men aged 18 and 19. In her statement to the police, the girl said she'd had sex with all three men and that the recruiter pressured her to move to LA County so he could prostitute her out to potential recruits.
Oh no, just because they're resorting to child prostitution, that doesn't mean they're having trouble making quotas at all. This is all part of the benefit package.
What the fuck kind of a country are we when over half of us say that using torture, not enhanced interrogation, but torture, is justified in thwarting terrorist attacks? According to the latest AP-GfK poll, 52% of Americans justify using torture to stop terrorist attacks, despite the fact that not a single shred of evidence exists to even suggest that torture has done so. What's even more alarming is that Americans subsidizing torture as a national security tool shot up 14% since 2005, meaning that Bush's cruelest policy has actually won over more hearts and minds of Americans since leaving office, a fact that doesn't augur very well for this once-great nation.
Why should we even be divided on this and how can so many people be so stupid as to think that the use of torture actually enhances national security instead of endangering our troops?
Pretty soon, North Korea's nukes will be in the hands of a 25 year-old. Oh good. The youngest son of Kim Jong Il has been named by Daddy as his successor. The other brothers were considered but one was dismissed because he channeled Nikita Khrushchev and got caught trying to go to Disneyland and the other because he was "too girlish." You just can't this up, folks. That's why we have Fox News.
