"The outcome and consequences of defeat [in Iraq] are greater than World War II."-- Gen. Richard Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of StaffDeclan Ganley has appointed George Bush former top military man former Chief of Staff Richard Myers to a position at his military contarcter Rivada Networks. The move comes as Ganley steps down from Rivada.
Meyers is a gung ho war monger. In 2005 he stated that reports by human rights group Amnesty International were irresponsible after Irene Khan, said in the organistaions's annual report: ''The detention facility at Guantanamo Bay has become the gulag of our times, entrenching the practice of arbitrary and indefinite detention in violation of international law."
Bush cried, ''Absurd." Cheney said, ''I was offended." Myers said, ''absolutely irresponsible."
Even after he left his post, Myers defended Rumsfeld's conduct of the ill-conceived and ill pursued war Iraq. His war resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians in Iraq.

12-12-08:Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other senior U.S. officials share much of the blame for detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
This appointment will be of interest to any readers of |Blood Money by T. Chrisauin miller which outlines some of Ganley's Iraqi activities.
While Ganley claimed he was not a neo con in repeated interviews the appointment of this architect of the war on terror to his company adds more weight to his being a far right neo con war monger.
The danger that a character like Ganley poses to our freedoms and democracy may now become clear. His neo con ambitions and attempt to buy civil power is unprecedented in history.
