Well, finally! An article that stands up and tells it like it is, instead of the chickenshit neocon bag-licking that we have seen out of the Post (and CIA asset Bob Woodward) and most every other mainstream news-agency.

However, I'm a little concerned that some of the people voting on his UN nomination may feel that , although he's now on the official list of has-beens, that he's owed something more than the ignominious end he justifiably has coming to him. Some of them may feel that he "deserves" to walk away with a little respect and vote him into the UN as a kind of "Golden Handshake". Gary Williams
