Capitol Hill Clueless Over the Real Reason Bush Removed North Korea from the Axis of Evil

The folks on Capitol Hill are sqawking up a storm today over Bush's decision to remove North Korea from the list of state sponsors of terrorism. "A profound disappointment!" crowed one. "It flies in the face of history!" screeched another. Don't expect anything fancier than this, in the way of explanation, from the media:

Fact is, as some of us have known for a long time, Bush & Cheney have bigger fish to fry, and if there's one thing you need to fry big fish, it's lots and lots of oil.

In plainspeak, the reason North Korea has officially been put on the back burner is to clear the path for the war against Iran. This is old news. Perhaps, if the good folks on Capitol Hill were to delve into the tin-foil havens of the internet, they wouldn't be so clueless. But, then, that would defeat the purpose of pretending to not be a part of the neocon agenda, now wouldn't it?
