Oh, the places they went

Oh, the Bush Administration, every new revelation another WTF? moment.

The Central Intelligence Agency in 2004 hired outside contractors from the private security contractor Blackwater USA as part of a secret program to locate and assassinate top operatives of Al Qaeda, according to current and former government officials.

Ah, yes, Blackwater — the cherry pit on the shite sundae that is the "War on Terror", all part no doubt of an all out — and profitable — effort to score some politically convenient points in an election year.

And how’d that work out?

The C.I.A. spent several million dollars on the program, which did not successfully capture or kill any terrorist suspects.


Meanwhile…, there are those pending charges of conspiracy to murder and gun running too.

I’m sure this will all be discussed in the forthcoming Dick Cheney romantic fantasy.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
