Bush Seeking New Czar

Quote:
White House Seeks Lying Czar
Would Coordinate Distortions about Iraq, Afghanistan
The White House in recent weeks has been quietly searching for candidates for the position of “lying czar,” a high-level administrator who would oversee all distortions and misrepresentations about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a White House source confirmed today.
News of the administration’s search for a “lying czar” raised eyebrows in official Washington, where many insiders believe that the White House already has enough personnel to handle the creation and dissemination of war-related lies.
Specifically, many insiders wonder why an administration that already has advisor Karl Rove and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would also need a “lying czar.”
“The Bush administration has a lot of world-class manpower, lying-wise,” one insider said. “This whole ‘lying czar’ thing seems like an unnecessary layer of bureaucracy.”
But White House insiders disagree, saying that those who believe a “lying czar” is unnecessary are oblivious to the overwhelming volume of distortions that are sorely in need of coordination at a high administrative level.
“On any given day, the Defense Department and the State Department will produce lies that are directly in conflict with each other, and that’s counterproductive,” one insider said. “A ‘lying czar’ would change all that.”
Professor Davis Logsdon, who holds the Clifford Irving chair at the University of Minnesota’s School of Communication, says that the need for a “lying czar” reveals certain weaknesses in the current Bush cabinet.
“When I hear that the White House is looking for a lying czar, one thing becomes clear,” Dr. Logsdon said. “They really miss Rumsfeld.”
Would I lie to you... my oldest and dearest friends.... if it didn't involve sex or money?

For the same reason we shouldn't bomb Canada, Italy or China.

Meanwhile, a White House war Czar was appointed. Asked what his task was, the answer was rather ambiguous. However it sounded very much like political officers assigned to every USSR unit. This political officer could even veto a ship Captain's commands in the name of a political agenda.

Oh. But the US is a democracy. It does not need political representatives in military units - to remind officers of their political agenda. Well it once did not. And then Cheney said the Presidency does not have enough power. Dictatorships needed political officers.
