Words Poorly Used #91 — Potential Evidence
Emitting from the gaseous hole that resides on the underside of the military-media complex, there is a new low in doublespeak. I do not attribute this, but you can Google it in today’s newsspace — the phrase, potential evidence, gets such palaver as “The White House issued a stern warning to Syrian President Bashar Assad on Monday night as it claimed “potential” evidence that Syria was preparing for another chemical weapons attack.” — Associated Press attribution by a minor market TV source. How craven? How hunkered-down, fear-crazed pitiful? Do the neo-cons in the deep state still believe that we are that stupid? Certainly, they believe what they want to believe. If we buy the concept of potential evidence, they will be right, and we humans will be lost.
