"Pivotal Roles In Great Events"

Here's some classic Rove/Bush PR spin. Rove is the master of the Big Lie, and excels at attacking political opponents on the very front which should be least assailable. A perfect example is the "Swift Boat Veterans", criticizing the wounded in combat and decorated volunteer soldier Kerry while George was partying so hard he couldn't even fulfill his duty to the stateside National Guard.

In the same spirit, Paul Bremer, George Tenet and Gen. Tommy Franks, who along with Bush himself should probably be tried for war crimes, were instead awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom yesterday.
"Jerry, Iraq is free today, and you helped make it so," Bush said, using Bremer's nickname. "And a free Iraq will help make generations of Americans more secure."

Speaking to the general who oversaw combat in Afghanistan and the initial invasion of Iraq, Bush said, "One of the highest distinctions of history is to be called a liberator and Tommy Franks will always carry that title."
