There's That Treason Word Again, But This Time It's Not Ann Coulter

Ouch, here are parts of a fairly cranky speech from retired Air Force Col. Robert Bowman. Wow, what an angry man. Sounds like someone needs a Happy Pill:
"....we’ve been lied to not only about the war, but about 9/11 itself. The Bush administration was warned. They were warned by the Clinton Administration during the transition period, they were warned by the intelligence agencies of eleven other nations, they were specifically warned by one FBI agent that Moussawi was planning on flying a hijacked airliner, “into the World Trade Center.” They ignored the warnings, more than that, we have mounting evidence that _at least_, they made it impossible for those planes to be intercepted. If our government had merely done nothing - and I say that as an old interceptor pilot and I know the drill, I know what it takes, I know how long it takes, I know what the procedures are, I know what they were and I know what they changed them to - if our government had merely done nothing and allowed normal procedures to happen on that morning of 9/11, the twin towers would still be standing and thousands of Americans would still be alive. My sisters and brothers, that is treason! As a combat veteran, I will not stand idly by and watch our security destroyed by a President who went AWOL rather than serve in Vietnam. As one who has devoted his life to the security of this country. I will not stand by and watch an appointed President send our sons and daughters around the world to kill Arabs for the oil companies. Patriotism demands that I speak out and call it by it’s name. It is treason.....
.....As a pilot who flew 101 combat missions in Vietnam, I swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that includes a renegade President. It’s time for George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleeza Rice and the whole Oil Mafia to be removed from office and indicted for treason."
My, somebody's got some issues here, no?

we've all got some issues, my friends... take some time to research the things that col. bob bowman talks about and you will see that calling it "treason" is putting it nicely. and taking a "happy pill" is not going to make things better people.

It's nice to see some of our military personnel (retired and otherwise) defending our "freedom" with something other than guns and bombs.

I don't understand? Didn't the 9/11 Commission thoroughly explore the air defenses that day, under the command of one Richard Cheney, who also just happened to be running war games about civilian planes flying into buildings that morning? Didn't the Commission put all that to rest?

More and more people with influence are speaking out these days. It’s hard to hide the incompetence (or brilliance, if you are a subsidized oil company or pharmaceutical) of the people running this administration.

I’m glad he referenced the oath, and the part about enemies, both foreign and domestic. Didn’t Lincoln say that it is the right, the duty of the people to rise up against an evil government? How many more dead, how many more friends turned against us, until we realize what a few people, enriching themselves, are doing to the U. S. of A.
