Does this strike anyone else as horribly weird? This Sunday, it was reported by the Washington Post, and picked up by every other major news organization (even Fox News), that the Bush administration had been recording phone conversations between the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohammed ElBaradei. ElBaradei contradicted the Bush Administration's assertation that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction before the war began, and it turns out he was right. Now the Bush administration is spying on him, trying to find some damning evidence to kick him out of office, but none was found. The conclusion that all the news organizations came to was that the Bush administration was just playing vindictive politics. This isn't some wild moveon.org conspiracy theory, this was the conclusion that Fox News echoed this Sunday for hours, as well as seemingly everyone else in the media. Meanwhile, back in the States, Bush gives George Tennet the Medal of Freedom. The guy who contradicted the Bush administration but was wrong is being spied on in an effort to be booted from his position. However, the guy from the Bush administration who supplied most of the faulty information that lead to this mess of a war gets the highest award a civilian can get. Is there any explaining this?
