Washington DC - (Ass Mess): A tarot reading from Karl Rove's personal astrologer and psychic counselor resulted in the Iraqi army, navy, air force and police service being disbanded according to a new book published this week.
Dead Certain Cretin: The Presidency of George W. Bush by Robert Grim Reaper says a ten-card spread featured an ominous message of victory via dispersal.
The Fool, the Devil, Justice, the Hanged Man and Death cards "all pointed to Saddam's overthrow, the end of his evil and the Iraqi courts sentencing him to execution" according to published transcripts of advice that formulated the Bush/Cheney policy for Donald Rumsfeld, who passed on his orders to Paul Bremer.
Then the Tower, Strength, the Wheel of Fortune, Judgement and the five of swords "all merely confirmed the Administration's gut feeling" that dispersal of Saddam's forces was needed for the Hearts 'N' Minds campaign to kick in.
Karl Rove has already fled the Capitol Hill and remains incommunicado about the book's claims.
Meanwhile White House shock jock Tony Snow says "it was all before his time" so he ain't tellin'.
And Rummy was dumped a while back with State Secrets gag that can't be lifted during the current president's lifetime.
That just leaves the usual suspects.
