Democracy Now! | Bush Taps Iran-Contra Figure Elliot Abrams to Promote Democracy

Dear President Steadfast:

You weaseled your way back from your earlier pledge to fire anyone who leaked Valerie Plame's identity, saying Monday that "if someone committed a crime" he would be fired.

Well, President Integrity, perhaps you recall one Elliot Abrams? You know, the guy you picked earlier this year to be your deputy national security advisor? Yeah, him -- the one who pleaded guilty in 1991 to withholding information from Congress as part of the Iran-Contra mess. (Your Dad pardoned him to protect his own ass, but that does not change the fact that he admitted committing the crime.)

So I assume Mr. Abrams will be testing out the generosity of federal unemployment benefits about now, right sir?
