Scott McClellan Resignation -The Theme?

Surprise, surprise. Yet another resigning Bush administration operative is fessing up that he's a lying sack of shit. Scott Macelland, having resigned like just about any other self respecting (or not self self-respecting) Bush administration puppets having second thoughts about the carnage they have inflicted on the planet, is speaking out.

He writes: So I stood at the White House briefing room podium in front of the glare of the klieg lights for the better part of two weeks and publicly exonerated two of the senior-most aides in the White House: Karl Rove and Scooter Libby.

"There was one problem. It was not true.

"I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president's chief of staff, and the president himself."

How sad. His 2006 resignation has Rove written all over it.

Yes, it is 3:30 AM.

I am off topic. I wanted to note the change in your logo from a straight black background and white enneagram to a gradient gray against black.

Just wanted you to know some of us get this things.

That I am posting at your blog at 3:30 AM is mildly disconcerting.

One of my superiors back on the boat called this "a perfect cover your ass moment."

We are going to see alot of this, especially now that we are approaching the final year of shrub's term. All of these rats are jumping ship, and the common theme will be "well, it was all lies, but I didn't know!"

It looks to me like these folks either don't expect to be pardoned, or are trying to get one.

Yeah, this is how the story unfolds providing work for historians and investigative journalists for years to come.

This is exactly how history eventually becomes an accurate record of what has really happened. Documents are declassified, witnesses lose their fear, and the at least some of the guilty start seeking redemption. I suppose I could also add that the guilty seek book deals.

Expect more fringe players like McClellan to come forward with their "stories" in the years to come. The hard core idealogues, the PNAC members such as Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Bolton, Abrams, Pearle, Feith, etc... will never admit any wrongdoing. They will just get lucrative book deals and spend the rest of their lives on the lecture circuit and Fox news.

Both Dustin and Liza are correct, and history will show the dirty bastards for what they are.

Remorse of conscience, especially after the criminals have left the White House, will eat at the souls of those who have them. (I think Liza is right that the hard cores will never fess up. They have no souls.)

Enough will come forward for history to hone in on a pretty accurate picture.

I think x4mr has already asked this question, but if not, I will.

Can Bush just pardon the whole "kit and kaboodle" and everyone gets away with everything?

Do we really have a system where a criminal can take over the presidency, commit anything, and then just pardon the entire machine? Can he pardon himself?

Something is very wrong with that picture. They belong in prison.

In fact, frankly, some should be shot for treason or as war criminals guilty of crimes against humanity.
