Let’s say a politician, in the days before an election, blatantly lies about what he knows concerning a crime against his fellow citizens and indeed humanity. Not just lies about to the people, but lies about to the investigators who are anxiously trying to find the bad guys. That delayed sharing of information in itself could be viewed as siding with terrorists (at least long enough for them to get away). Wouldn’t you expect voters to kick him out of office (and in the groin for that matter). Wouldn’t that essentially be the American way? Again, as I have said numerous times, I hope Spain leaves their troops in Iraq. But can one really make the argument that Spanish voters are guilty of appeasement?
