Scheunemann and the Library Scandal

I haven’t written about the interesting scandal prompted by longtime Bush associate Stephen Payne being caught on tape talking about how he could provide access to the administration in exchange for access to the Bush library, but suffice it to say that Randy Scheunemann, one of John McCain’s top national security dudes and a frequent spokesman for McCain, is now revealed to have close links to the shady dealings in question. Of course a little run of the mill corruption couldn’t possibly do as much harm to the country as Scheunemann’s past associations with Ahmed Chalabi have, but there seems to have been a collective decision that everyone who worked with Chalabi on swindling the country into a disastrous war deserves a free pass.
