Mission Accomplished

President Bush today tries to remember who was responsible for displaying the "Mission Accomplished" banner on the USS Abraham Lincoln in May.

President Bush in May on the USS Lincoln, not minding at all having his photograph taken under the "Mission Accomplished" banner the sailors allegedly wanted put up.

One month later, President Bush said to troops in Qatar:

America sent you on a mission to remove a grave threat and to liberate an oppressed people, and that mission has been accomplished. (Applause.)

Know what? I don't give a rat's ass whose idea it was to put up the banner.

Fact is, BushCo made damn sure the President got the chance to pull his stunt on the Lincoln in his custom flight suit. BushCo made damn sure the President was right under that banner while declaring, "major combat operations in Iraq have ended." BushCo made damn sure that people believed the mission was in fact accomplished in subsequent words and actions. And now we must make damn sure they don't get away with their "technically accurate" deceptions.

Far be it from me to quote Revoltin' Joe Lieberman, but he said it best today*:

"Today was another banner day in George Bush's quest to bring honor and integrity to the White House," Lieberman said. "If he wanted to prove he has trouble leveling with the American people, mission accomplished."

Say it ain't so, Joe.


* Dean had a statement as well.
