1. Fired for not being more discrete....

8. low level folks one named Grenier I recall. One star gen. Kapinski was forced out, but may have been

for her whistle-blowing? I'm sorry but memory does not serve. Sure there is a record by some of the millions against the illegal war, chemical weapons use and torture. What really sucks about that is that the "torture report" presented to U.S. Seantors who were "visibly shaken" after viewing was never made public and copies were destroyed. Not sure if anything remains. Another whitewash in America. Just like Iraq Commission.

9. Or Colin Powell

for his complicity in trying to cover up the Mai Lai massacre.........


I once said to my son, "we (the public) probably don't know one thousandth of what goes on........"

He replied: "And we probably DON'T WANT to know............"

10. We may not want to know, but what is done in OUR name, we should be able to know.

And yes, Powell lied a lot. Aluminum tubes, mushroom clouds and WMD is up there. The whole Bush cabal has blood on their hands.
