Turns out that abuse scandal is larger than has been reported. Surprise, surprise. They started by covering it up, and proceeded to minimize it every step of the way, so I am shocked, truly shocked, to discover that we hadn't been told the full extent of it.
Bush has dragged the reputation of the United States through mounds of dung, and is it any wonder that the rest of the world no longer believes a damned thing we say?
It will be years - possibly decades - before we regain our reputation.
