So here's the DNI, walking into the Oval Office, and, according to Dana, goes "We just got this new intelligence and it confirms what we we believed all along, that Iran does have a nuculer weapons program" except that they stopped it four years ago, his voice trailing off after "Iran does have a nuculer weapons program." I suppose you're thinking "Who talks like that?" Who could possibly have such an artificial way of speaking? Dickens, who wrote satire, wasn't this bad. Wasn't this line "crafted" by the same folks who turn out the Daily Grand Old Party Blogger Talking Points (DGOPBTP)?In this context, your 'umble Seer can give you guidance. Your very own Seer adopted this same form of speech thirty years ago in Vietnam when addressing military commanders in the United States Army, who held your worthless Seer’s precious life in their hands, who went ballistic whenever they were told something they did not want to hear. Seer is pleased to inform Canadians that such officers are in a minority in the US Army, though everyone in the Army has had to deal with several of them.Think about this. We're not talking about some private first class or some second lieutenant afraid to talk to tell The President of the United States something he doesn't want to hear, we're talking about someone who has a portfolio as heavy as, say, Stockwell Day, except in a country nine times the size of Canada. Maybe the Commander in Chief actually did hear what the seniorest intelligence officer in the United States of America tried to tell The President after the obligatory ass kissing, or, as likely as not, maybe The President stopped listening when it had become clear that the ass-kissing was over. I say, Bush is telling the truth when he says he didn't hear anything he didn't want to hears.
