How'd They Let THIS Get Out?

The Wednesday before the Thanksgiving the Pentagon confirmed the contents of a report by the Defense Science Board that's highly critical of Bush Administration policy. Here's a key quote:

'Muslims do not hate our freedom, but rather they hate our policies [the report says]. The overwhelming majority voice their objections to what they see as one-sided support in favor of Israel and against Palestinian rights, and the long-standing, even increasing, support for what Muslims collectively see as tyrannies, most notably Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Pakistan and the Gulf states. Thus, when American public diplomacy talks about bringing democracy to Islamic societies, this is seen as no more than self-serving hypocrisy.'

Of course, those of us NOT in the cult of the GOP already knew this, but it's amazing that something that so clearly contradicts Administraion policy come out from anything resembling a government agency.
