Before some one asks "Where's the conspiracy here?", let's remind everyone of who this guys is.
This is the guy who very recently left a position as the Number Two Head of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; the federal
agency which controls, amoung other things, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Food and Drug Agency
(FDA), and the national Medicare program.
He left (or was he "encouraged" to leave) the DHHS to serve as a (not THE) "domestic policy advisor" in the Bush White House (Hmmmmm,
'Keep your Friends close, but Keep your Enemies Closer', perhaps?).
And now he is accused of theft in the amount of aproximately $5000 by Target Stores!? (Whose board of directors includes officers from Xerox and
Coca-Cola; hardly GOP antigonists, I'm sure.). This, is after he abruptly resigns from his new White House position, citing as his reason for
departure"Wanting to spend more time with his family".
Now that the paranoia-tron is fully warmed and ready, lets see what we can produce:
Petro-dollar to Petro-Euro shift possibility pending.
Conflict in Iran threatening world's oil supply.
US economic instablity.
US healthcare system on brink of collapse.
Avian flu spreading globally.
Possibility of world-wide pandemic now a "probability"; not "if" but "when" and likely sooner than later.
US Medicare revisions mis-represented and failing to perform as needed to prevent collapse of Medicare program; leaving the poorest and neediest of
the the Nation's sick without medical care.
Shutting some one up by charging him with a relatively minor and difficult to disprove crime (since Target Stores refuses to provide the video tape on
which it bases its accusations, even to the man's defense attorney!) is also a good way to keep the panic, and the difficult questions, at bay.
"I want to spend more time with my family....before the End comes and we all die." sounds like a good reason to resign your position to me.
