After having watched Tony Snowjob at work today, I have returned to an earlier conviction about the "invincible ignorance" of the Bush camp and its "minders."
They are impervious to rational persuasion, and will take any unfavorable evidence and spin it into a web of deception and half truths that serves their purposes. This does not mean that I think they are lying. No. It is worse than that. They believe their own baloney. Their baloney is based on esoteric understandings of history and the "progress " of history.
Pity the poor intelligence analysts. They have nothing at their disposal but their experience and arguments based on probabilities and always incomplete "evidence."
Whatever they say or write will be interpreted by the "Fourth Awakening" as evidence of its own truth.
