GWB today awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom today to three men who he said had "made our country more secure and advanced the cause of human liberty": Gen. Tommy R. Franks, George J. Tenet and L. Paul Bremer III.
"These three men symbolize the nobility of public service, the good character of our country and the good influence of America on the world."
Why do I feel like the only person in the room who gets the joke?
The good influence of America on the world? George Slam Dunk Tenet? This incompetant buerocrat not only played a big part in getting us into the Iraq war but should take a major hit for the intelligence failures that lead up to 9/11. I can only wonder why Ahmed Chalabi wasn't up there too, he is certainly as deserving as these clowns.
Of course, Bush is going to have to create a new Super-Duper Presidential Medal of Freedom for Rumsfeld because his mistakes make these guys look like amateurs.
