Worse than I thought...

This link below is a three-page excerpt from the new book: Machiavelli's Shadow: The Rise and Fall of Karl Rove, from the top-notch news website Salon. Specifically, it deals with Rove's and, by proxy, George W. Bush's response to the Katrina disaster almost three years ago. And here I presumed they were merely incompetent and/or indifferent...

Dear God...
I'm pretty sure the actions stated here rise to the level of second-degree murder (depraved indifference to human life). Assuming this is true, this is clearly Karl Rove and Bush Jr. intentionally withholding lifesaving aid to the people of New Orleans in order to play a game of political 'gotcha' with a Democratic swing-state governor. Countless people drowned so that Rove could delay the response and blame Democrats.

Barack Obama has stated that he plans to continue whatever investigations the Democrats currently have going on the Bush clan even after George W. leaves office. Let's hope Rove and company go to jail purely for this. And, no, McCain's record isn't much better in the aftermath.
