Obama's selection of Bush for Haiti relief, ties with Obama's Nobel Peace Prize as the most horrendous error. Profiteering from misery is what Bush does best.
'Face of the Empire'
By Brenda Norrell
President Obama selected war criminal and corporate thief George W. Bush to head up US relief efforts to Haiti, along with Bill Clinton.
No, this is not a joke or satire. It is not a Saturday Night Live spoof. It is a fact.
Now, the Clinton and Bush duo is pleading with Americans to donate to Haiti relief by way of them.
What percentage of donated money and goods will ever reach those in need if Bush and his circle of thieves are involved?
Remember Hurricane Katrina? Remember the people on rooftops, waving for rescue, day after day on the television news? Remember when day after day no one came to their aid? Remember Katrina. Remember who sent Blackwater assassins to New Orleans during Katrina relief? Remember the toxic FEMA trailer houses for the poor? Remember the good ole boys that said shooting blacks after Katrina was like "pheasant hunting in South Dakota" (as documented in film)?
This is George Bush's legacy during Katrina relief.
Remember the Bush/Cheney years, with torture in violation of the Geneva Conventions, with kidnappings and secret prisons and the corporate warmongering and genocide that caused the US to become one of the most hated nations in the world?
Why bring back Bush?
For anyone who doubted who Obama is, and what he is up to, the choice of Bush should make it clear.
