If you're having trouble reading the scriptThis isn't even on CNN yet, let it be known that the MidwestMindsetters with the help of ABC and NBC nightly news broke this story.
Today the "President" met via Sattelite feed with a dozen or so American soldiers. He asked them questions about the upcoming Iraqi constitution. The only problem is that a senior pentagon official ran over the questions and the answers before the video conference, and all of it was caught on tape! The entire event--advertised as a completely spontaneous--was entirely scripted. Nothing new with our government, but just another friendly reminder that we are living in a space and time of lies, propaganda, and violence.
If this video-conferencing was scripted, it makes one wonder if the entire 5 years have been scripted. Our lives as Christians have been scripted by a script(ure) other than that of Jesus. Is this fact even going to be sobering to the white, American, middle class church? Probably not. Are we/they that far shipwrecked?
Ps. Welcome Leah, your CV is intimidating.
