Who Really IS this Guy, Allen Dollison?
I was greeted by an above-the-fold Saturday, January 31, 2009 Times-Standard picture of some guy grinning like a Cheshire cat that just ate the canary, under the headline: “Fighting for Hearts and Minds.”
The question I ask is: Whose “hearts and minds?”
Underneath that picture it says, The fight for Baghdad, and Deputy District Attorney Allen Dollison’s role in it.” The T/S reporter Thadeus Greenson makes it sound like this guy’s a rather important “know-it-all” authority. Read the article and that is exactly what he is made to sound like. He rolls out the propaganda like any brain-washed good soldier should. He makes all the “good” excuses ala George W. Bush et al. justifying why no one is at fault for anything, certainly not any of our good and virtuous fighting men and women. Listening to him you’d think we won the war, justified the rape and everything is just peachy in the world. We can rape and butcher another country on lies and at will and it isn’t going to cost us a thing. Well, the few thousand killed and injured compared to the tens of thousands of Iraqi people is a small price to pay just to make a point. Oh, yeah the point, “If you’re not with us, you’re agin us.”
…and this guy is a DEPUTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY?
