Freedom Fries? Never Mind ...

So a couple-thousand dead American soldiers later, the congressman behind 'freedom fries' has changed his mind...

(Source: Guardian Unlimited) the US politician who led the campaign to change the name of french fries to "freedom fries" has turned against the war.

Walter Jones, the Republican congressman for North Carolina who was also the brains behind french toast becoming freedom toast in Capitol Hill restaurants, told a local newspaper the US went to war "with no justification".

Asked by a reporter for the North Carolina News and Observer about the name-change campaign - an idea Mr Jones said at the time came to him by a combination of God's hand and a constituent's request - he replied: "I wish it had never happened."

...Although he voted for the war, he has since become one of its most vociferous opponents on Capitol Hill, where the hallway outside his office is lined with photographs of the "faces of the fallen".

"If we were given misinformation intentionally by people in this administration, to commit the authority to send boys, and in some instances girls, to go into Iraq, that is wrong," he told the newspaper. "Congress must be told the truth."

Uh, thanks dumbass but it's too late now! And don't try to blame it on 'misinformation' either...come on what a cop-out.

Talk about trying to have it both ways- first you jump on the French-hating 'we must go to war' bandwagon and now that American soldiers are bogged down for the long term in Iraq with no WMD's in sight...suddenly it's "The Bush Team lied to us!" Don't pass the buck, you were a willing participant.

Plus, do you really expect people to believe that God told you to do this:

Yeah right.


Here you can write a letter to Congressman Jones that will be hand delivered by Western Union.
