John Berlau

He runs something called the "Center for Investors and Entrepreneurs" at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, even though he's never been in business.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute acts libertarian, but it is neocon to the core. The majority of CEI's money comes from oil and tobacco companies.

Berlau will talk about anything at great length to advance neocon causes. One of these is global warming, which he believes is fiction.

Berlau admits to having no scientific training, and it shows! When asked what happens to a gas when it is heated, he stammered and said "maybe it gets heavier?" He's also said, many times, that trees pollute more than cars.

This is one to watch out for!

Lynndie England

Speaking of torture…

She's "torture girl" Lynndie England. She implemented Gonzales' policy of torture while assigned to Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

The photographs of her horrific treatment of Iraqi prisoners have turned people around the world against the United States. One can only hope that it will be seen that she did not act for all Americans.

As a convicted felon, she, like Alberto Gonzales, is having trouble finding work.

Alberto Gonzales

They call him "torture boy" and with good reason. He, more than anyone else, fought to make torture a part of U.S. policy.

He failed, and had to resign as Attorney General.
He has been unable to find a job.

Amazing! At one point, President Bush seemed to want to appoint him to the Supreme Court.

He made other serious mistakes as well. He allowed the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to dupe Haji Bashir Noorzai into coming to the United States. Noorzai thought he would be working with the Americans in Afghanistan. Instead, he was arrested.

Not only does this make Gonzales a liar, but he did grave damage to US-Afghan relations.

To make it even worse, corrupt FBI employees involved in the matter were let off with little more than a slap on the wrist!

George Bush

The worst president in U.S. history.

He started senseless and costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. These wars did not result in the capture of Osama bin Laden. They did, however, cause the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression.

The Bush Presidency will be remembered for failed foreign, domestic, and economic policies as well as efforts to erode if not destroy individual rights.

Just because Bush is gone does not mean that the neocon menace is over. This blog will tell you about neocons-past and present-who still seek to implement neocon objectives worldwide!
