Those Little Freudian Slips

We crackpot psychologists know that beneath our thin, fragile personality exteriors there lies a seething ocean of tormented id. Sometimes it's just harder 'n hell to keep a lid on that id to be able to function and speak well enough to order a hamburger, let alone accomplish more complicated tasks.

Pity our poor, beleaguered fascists. On the one hand they need to present themselves in a forthright, statesmanlike manner, pretending to wield their power responsibly while eschewing personal gain for the sake of the people. But beneath the surface of these tortured souls is a violent storm of hatred and fear. They know what they've done - they know they orchestrated 9/11 and murdered countless thousands. They know that they have to lie every second of their lives to cover up what they've done or else people will realize the enormity of their crimes. The pressure must be terrible to maintain this facade.
But then, there are those telling little slips of the tongue.

Perhaps a weak moment and they can't get the story straight. Maybe a fleeting sense of doubt or even a tiny spark of self loathing about it all. Unfortunately for them these accumulated solecisms betray what really happened on Sept. 11.

Parade magazine interviewed Von Rumsfeld on friday, Oct. 12 at the pentagon. This is part of a transcript from the DoD' website:

Q: This is a question that's been asked by many Americans, but especially by the widows of September 11th. How were we so asleep at the switch? How did a war targeting civilians arrive on our homeland with seemingly no warning?
Von Rumsfeld: (...) It is a truth that a terrorist can attack any time, any place, using any technique and it's physically impossible to defend at every time and every place against every conceivable technique. Here we're talking about plastic knives and using an American Airlines flight filed with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Center.

And Von Rumsfeld again, letting it slip that Flight 93 was shot down in Pennsylvania:

I'm sure there will be plenty more. It must be really hard keeping all those lies in order.
