PROPOSED CUTS WOULD EVISCERATE ENGLISH-LANGUAGE VOICE OF AMERICA (April 6, 2006) from www.uexpress.com/georgieannegeyer

WASHINGTON — My first reaction, when I heard that the Voice of America is going to abolish most of its English-language programs to the world, was how downright stupid such a move is.
Since President Eisenhower founded organizations like the Voice after World War II as instruments to defend the United States by broadcasting fair and accurate news to the world, the Voice has been an inexpensive treasure house to the nation. It has influenced countless leaders, often when they were young, standing in the fields and back alleys of dictatorships and autocracies for whom the very word “news” is subversive.

Excuse me, but hasn’t anybody noticed that George W. Bush appears to be a criminal suspect?

This is not a Republican/Democrat spat issue, so everyone wake up and get the message:

Scooter Libby has implicated George W. Bush in authorizing a leak of classified information.

Not a release of declassified information. Classified information. Leaked by an administration staffer after collusion by the President and the Vice President.

Wasn’t it enough for any rational person when Bush admitted publicly that he violated federal law by ordering domestic wiretaps and electronic surveillance without even going through established and somewhat fast and loose foreign intelligence surveillance courts?

Lest any conservatives out there say that I’m just picking on Bush because he’s a Republican, stow that crap right now.

At least Nixon, as fundamentally scummy as Bush is, had some talent for foreign policy.

And please, don’t come back with the line that Bush is a wartime leader. The only thing worse than imperialism is imperialism by amateurs.
