Quote of the Week or the Century?[quote]The rebels emerged virtually overnight. "The real mystery is where these guys are coming from," says Thayer Scott of the International Republican Institute, a group funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development to foster democracy in Haiti. "They are organized; they have uniforms; they have better weapons than the old Haitian Army had the last time the U.S. intervened. And here they are, out of the blue."[/quote]

Their title should really be " The Fog Of War " if they were not afraid of being sued by Erol Morris, eh?!!?

I nominate this quote for " Best Quote Immitating Orwellian 1984 Newspeak [
/color] " - Do they really believe we are that stupid?!!? Then again sadly, we USA-responsible-media-starved people may very well be uninformed to this degree.
