Jack Abramoff knew what all of the Wise Old Men of Washington pretended to not know. I have to say I still feel a sense of profound rage when I remember how much the media played along with the White House little game of pretending that maybe they wouldn't go to war, and then when the UN inspectors didn't find anything pretending that somehow meant nothing. Thanks Wise Old Men of Washington for presenting the show precisely how the White House staged it. You done good!

I was sitting yesterday with Karl Rove, Bush's top advisor, at the NCAA basketball game, discussing Israel when this email came in. I showed it to him. It seems that the President was very sad to have to come out negatively regarding Israel, but that they needed to mollify the Arabs for the upcoming war on Iraq. That did not seem to work anyway. Bush seems to love Sharon and Israel, and thinks Arabfat [sic], is nothing but a liar. I thought I'd pass that on.
