Bush Iraq Policy Redux
Well it does appear that the Bush policy of "We're fighting them in Iraq so that we can defeat them abroad, so we don't have to fight them here at home." has proven an abysmal failure. It is being reported that al Qaeda is at pre 9/11 strength. The article from the Associated Press states,
Al-Qaida is "considerably operationally stronger than a year ago" and has "regrouped to an extent not seen since 2001," the official said, paraphrasing the report's conclusions. "They are showing greater and greater ability to plan attacks in Europe and the United States."
This appears to be yet another nail in the proverbial coffin of the Bush Cheney led war on terrorism. Maybe this latest report will cause a few fence sitting Republicans to finally see the folly of Bush's war in Iraq.
On another note, it is nice to see that the Australia's Defense Minister is bluntly honest as to why their nation is in Iraq. They are all about the oil.
