Secretary of State Colin Powell said Wednesday the United States does not consider legitimate the results of the elections, which the opposition says was marred by fraud.
He challenged leaders of the nation "to decide whether they are on the side of democracy or not.''
"We cannot accept this result as legitimate, because it does not meet international standards and because there has not been an investigation of the numerous and credible reports of fraud and abuse,'' Powell said.
Editorializing about the election the Washington Post wrote:
"For the Bush administration, the responsibility starts with stating the unvarnished truth about what has happened in an election."
I'm afraid the truth is being shellacked to within an inch of its life.
These quotes could be referring to the whammy perpetrated on the true blue majority right here in River City, but no..., they're talking about the strangely parallel election fraud in the Ukraine. As the Professor noted, the only difference between the U.S. elections and the Ukraine elections is that, over there, people are protesting in the streets.
