Where is Donald Rumsfeld?

In 2003 Donald Rumsfeld estimated a war with Iraq would cost $60 billion. Five years later, the cost of Iraq war operations is over 10 times that figure. So what's behind the ballooning dollar signs? Joseph E. Stiglitz and Linda J. Bilme's exhaustedly researched book, "The Three Trillion Dollar War: The True Cost of the Iraq Conflict," breaks down the price tag, from current debts to the unseen costs we'll pay for years to come. First things first: let's investigate 9/11, truly investigate it, and the bogus Iraq & Afghanistan Wars we were lied into which we're spending $3 BILLION dollars a week...before the so-called "climate-gate". Isn't it sickening that we care more about straightening out other countries than straightening out our own country? Like covering all Americans with health care? Lots of Americans are so sick of this, they're moving to Mexico for health care. Is that what the rest of America wants? People who are fed up, to leave the country? The fact is, most Americans do want to take care of US first, the government is doing otherwise. Obviously, the corrupted leaders of the U.S. care more about other countries than this country. We could change this country around in a heartbeat: cover everyone with health care, make college education affordable, and things like that. But our leaders are fighting two wars which I don't even know why at 3 BILLION dollars a week and counting. Obama is escalating the war in Afghanistan instead of covering all Americans with health care and making college affordable. That's what I care about.

Does anyone find it odd, that the Global Warming emails that the right are screaming about were hacked right before Obama was going to speak at a Climate Change summit? And no one's talking about the hackers? And hacking emails is illegal? And maybe the hackers are connected to the rightwingers like the ACORN pimp was connected to Andrew Breitbart? And no one can say exactly what the emails say that supposedly proves there's no Global Warming? And that the scientists themselves said the emails were sound-bited out of context by the rightwing media? And that emails aren't science? And the right has had a "War on Science" with many other things including EVOLUTION? And they could care less about the LIES that Bush/Cheney sold us to get us into two endless wars? And they've been discrediting Global Warming for decades? And a lot of the scientists discrediting Global Warming are funded by Exxon-Mobile? Or that the right has one thing after another lined up: Obama pals around with terrorists, Joe the Plumber, Obama isn't a U.S. citizen, ACORN, etc...etc...etc...?
