Truth to Power

Hypocrisy is my business. And business is good.

Remember that picture of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam? Bidness as usual, it turns out:

Don Rumsfeld Bats Both Ways

Chris Floyd

It’s a well-known fact – oft detailed in these pages – that the boys in the Bush Regime swing both ways. We speak, of course, of their proclivity – their apparently uncontrollable craving – for stuffing their trousers with loot from both sides of whatever war or military crisis is going at the moment.

That’s why it came as no surprise to read last week that just before he joined the Regime’s crusade against evildoers everywhere (especially rogue states that pursue the development of terrorist-ready weapons of mass destruction), Pentagon warlord Donald Rumsfeld was trousering the proceeds from a $200 million deal to send the latest nuclear technology – including plenty of terrorist-ready “dirty bomb” material – to the rogue state of North Korea, the Swiss paper Neue Zurcher Zeitung reports.
