Perle Pot ONLY THE KETTLE IS BLACK! February 21, 2004 By Ted Lang Whoa!  What’s goin’ on?  Richard Perle, one of the Bush crime family’s top dog secret PNAC war criminals is now hand-wringing and finger-pointing, and calling for “heads to roll” in the Bush administration’s spook bureau?  Is this unbelievable?  Does anyone out there still have a problem trying to figure out why the revelations of former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill were so quickly dropped and relegated to a non-event by our captive and dependent corporate media? thepeoplesvoice.org
