Psssst, Republicans? Pretending You Don't Still Lying.

Oh my heavens! It would be funny if it weren't so horrific.

WASHINGTON — Ex-Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and other top former Pentagon brass denied any cover-up and rejected personal responsibility Wednesday for the military's bungled response to Army Ranger Pat Tillman's friendly-fire death in Afghanistan.

"I know that I would not engage in a cover-up. I know that no one in the White House suggested such a thing to me. I know that the gentlemen sitting next to me are men of enormous integrity and would not participate in something like that," Rumsfeld told a House committee.

It was Rumsfeld's first public appearance on Capitol Hill since President Bush replaced him with Robert Gates late last year. He reiterated previous testimony to investigators that he didn't have early knowledge that Tillman was cut down on April 22, 2004, by fellow Rangers, not by enemy militia, as was initially claimed.


Rumsfeld and Myers both said they couldn't remember precisely how or when they learned of Tillman's death or that it might be friendly fire. Rumsfeld said he didn't recall discussing the Tillman issue with the White House until the fratricide became public.

I am so glad that the Democrats are doing these investigations. It's very, very important to get these people (I use the term loosely, of course) under oath and in front of the cameras, LYING THROUGH THEIR TEETH. It will simply continue to drive home the point that America can't afford to elect any more Republics. From top to bottom, they are a bunch of lying, war-profiteering, power-mad fascists who have no respect for, or understanding of, the Constitution we hold so dear.

It's too bad that Pat Tillman, and the millions of other victims of the Bush Crime Family's neo-conservative madness, had to suffer and die before many of us understood...
