Eight Months of Lies

     For the last eight months, and more, President Bush & Co. have been promising that the (lie) "Road Map to Peace" was going ahead.  Let's ignore that the whole thing was behind schedule before it was even made public, now, Ariel Sharon's Negotiations Minister said

I believe he[Dov Weisglas, Sharon's Chief of Staff] has revealed the true intentions of Sharon. We told the quartet [of U.S.-led peace mediators] eight months ago that the Gaza plan was designed to undermine their road map
which followed Weisglas's comment, quoted in Ha'aretz
The significance of the disengagement plan is the freezing of the peace process[.] And when you freeze that process you prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state and you prevent a discussion on the refugees, the borders, and Jerusalem. Effectively this whole package called the Palestinian state with all that it entails has been removed indefinitely from the agenda.... All of this with a presidential blessing and the ratification of both Houses of Congress.
Of course, Bush has been lying for months, according to the Israelis.  This from many sources, including the Christian Science Monitor.
