December 29, Taxes - Bush said that he needs more time for consultation before he finalizes and announces the new Iraqi policy.
I guess GB has not decided which Intel to use to persuade the American people to go along with his latest change in direction. The WMD Intel really hurt. He thought that by the time people discovered that there was in reality no Intel on WMD, the war would have been over and done with. America would be celebrating the absolute victory. Nobody would have cared whether the WMD Intel was real or faked. He was wrong.
He will not make the same mistake again.
This time, the Intel must be able to persuade and yet not backfire. The plan is not really important, it was finalized during Bush senior's administration. It is the Intel that is holding up the announcements.
The cabinet must cook up the Intel perfectly. The world must swallow it without coming up with indigestion months later. I pity the American soldiers in Iraq. I pity the Iraqis more but that is another story. This is why I want to share a secret with GB. He can then finish his " consultation " speedily.
To come up with good Intel, you must always add Lemon Grass. The secret ingredient is Lemon Grass. I know, I used to live in Thailand and in Thailand; they use lots of Lemon Grass. You must not add too much salt but I am guessing GB already knew that. Americans use salt in their recipes but nobody in America uses Lemon Grass when they are cooking Intel for public consumption. Use Lemon Grass, George.
The writer Andrew PK Yap, eats Lemon Grass for lunch, trust him.
