LOYALTY VS. MORALITY
THERE IS NO GREATER THREAT TO THE SECURITY OF FREEDOM LOVING AMERICANS AND PEOPLE THE WORLD OVER THAN TYRANTS ELECTED AND OTHERWISE WHO ATTEMPT TO CONTROL THEM FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH AGENDA.
They wish us to believe that what they do is in our best interest and that the rest of the world is inhabited by fools.
In my opinion G. Ford was one of them.
He once said; " I am no Lincoln I am a Ford"
But he was no model T.
He was never elected, pardoned one of the nations biggest crooks," in the best interest of the country"
Gerald Ford surrounded himself by advisers who would later play key roles in the current Bush administration and in shaping Bush’s Iraq war policy. Donald Rumsfeld served first as his chief of staff and then as Secretary of Defense. Dick Cheney also served as Ford’s chief of staff. Paul Wolfowitz served in the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency.
President Bush said; “with his quiet integrity, common sense, and kind instincts, President Ford helped heal our land and restore public confidence in the presidency."
My God do these people think the rest of the world is blind?
Ford and Henry Kissinger, his Secretary of State, offered advance approval of Indonesia’s brutal invasion of East Timor that killed one-third of the Timorese population. YES ONE-THIRD!
The AP says that in April of 1970, at the request of White House aide, John Ehrlichman, Ford led an effort by more than 100 house members to impeach Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglass. The efforts stem from the Senate’s rejection of two Nixon nominees to the court, Clement Haynesworth Jr. and G. Harold Carswell. In a now famous speech on the house floor, Ford told his colleagues that “an impeach-able offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history.”
ROBERT PARRY: : "Well, clearly the pardon of Richard Nixon was a politically understandable step. But again, it cut off some of the investigative efforts to really fully understand what happened during that period of Nixon’s presidency. There's always been this balance in Washington where there seems to be this obsession with moving on, and sometimes that leaves the American people without the full understanding of the facts of the situation. And therefore, some of the problems can re-emerge years down the road, as we've seen in this resurrection of the Imperial Presidency in the past 6 years. So I would think that was, some of the lessons learned by Cheney and Rumsfeld in the Ford White House were the need to fight for those executive powers in ways that were sometimes surreptitious as well as more open.
We saw at the CIA, for instance, during that period, the CIA Director, George H.W. Bush attempt to conduct a number of CIA operations with the same kind of arrogance and secrecy that had covered previous ones. The main point during that period was to get the CIA off the front pages, as Bush once put it. So when you had events like the Argentine military coup which set in motion the so-called Dirty War and led to some 30,000 deaths, that occurred during that period. And we still don't know the full involvement of the U.S. government in that.
The assassination of Orlando Letelier, the Chilean foreign minister, and his American co-worker, Ronni Moffitt occurred in September of 1976. And again, the impetus was not to find the truth, but to protect both the Pinochet government and the CIA from any fallout that might have occurred. Again, the timing of those things that are important because Ford was trying to win that election in November. So if one overlays the political calendar to the effort to misdirect investigators on the Letelier assassination, one sees the effort to keep the CIA from having negative press and therefore hurting Ford's chances. So again you see this idea of protecting the presidency from negative information. And that whole approach of keeping the American people in the dark is something that the Ford White House, in a sense, put back in motion after Watergate. And I think the pardon was part of that."
Now they want to hang Sadam for how many deaths? The very one the aided and abetted.
Who will try this administration for the unnecessary death of every America Soldier and thousands of other innocent people the world over?
As well as destroying a nations infrastructure.
I did not hear any of this on National Public Radio's tribute to Ford.
so much for indepent media.
Why do they dislike US?
Those that ignore history are doomed to relive it again and again.
This is why I could not say peace on earth this Hollyday season while so many are in harms way for no good reason.
