Indiana Jones on G.W.

Harrison Ford staged an attack on foreign soil yesterday, but his target was George W. Bush.

Ford is the latest Hollywood celebrity to dump on the Prez, joining Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn, among others, in criticizing America’s adventure in Iraq.

“I am very disturbed about the direction American foreign policy is going,” Ford said in Madrid yesterday. He’s in Spain promoting his U.S. box-office flop “Hollywood Homicide,” co-starring Josh Hartnett.

“Something needs to be done to help alleviate the conditions which have created a disenfranchised and angry faction in the Middle East,” he said. “I don’t think military intervention is the correct solution. I regret what we as a country have done so far.”

That was from today’s “NY Daily News.”

And to piggie back off of this subject, here is another article. This one from Yahoo News:

“Halliburton, the company formerly headed by Vice President Cheney, has won contracts worth more than $1.7 billion under Operation Iraqi Freedom and stands to make hundreds of millions more dollars under a no-bid contract awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, according to newly available documents.”

Now, oh, Jen?

  1. Yes, Denis?

    I had heard that yesterday. My response is a hearty eye-roll and whatever.

    He’s been losing stature with me since Six Days, Seven Nights and his hooking up with Calista. I think he’s lost his mind, really.

  2. Harrison Ford’s romantic interest has nothing to do with his views on foreign policy. Jen needs to be reminded that HARRISON FORD appears on her ‘Fake Boyfriend’ list…now, what does that say about your foreign policy views.

    FENG SHUI IS THE CURE FOR ALL MIDDLE EAST AGGRESSIONS!

  3. Feng Shui in the White House. What do you think, Lori? Bush could use a little. Harrison Ford in the White House. Whoo Hoo!!!!

  4. Oh, Pluueeese. Eye roll, indeed. Harrison Ford needs to stick with movies and Feng Shui is a load of Eastern hooey.

  5. I’m still trying to understand why it’s wrong to give contracts to Halliburton. They are a reputable engineering company with special skills in oil industry engineering. I suppose we COULD run competitive procurements for months, followed by protests by the losers, followed by legal wrangling and then finally a year or more later get a contract in place for work that needed to be done a year or more earlier, but then the White House would be accused of “doing nothing” to help the oil industry get started again in Iraq.

    The Dumbocrats are still whining about losing the election and can’t stand how well W is doing. Just keep whining, babies…it’s going to be a looooooong 8 years! 😉
