To the editor:
There is a disturbing aspect to former presidential press secretary Scott McClellan's recent book, "What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception." In it, he asserts allegations of wrongdoing in the Bush administration (none of which has been denied).
On one hand, nothing new was revealed. But McClellan adds an insider's voice confirming the mass of previous evidence that the American people were sold an unnecessary and illegal war.
For me, the disturbing aspect of the book's publication and review was the press' general acknowledgment that what McClellan said was true, it is common knowledge. Where is the outcry? Where the outrage? Tens of thousands have died because of these lies!
I worry for our republic when Bush's actions, which in past times of our history would have been seen as treasonous, impeachable and war crimes, are now greeted with a yawn and a general comment of "big woop." God help us.
