I guess failure WAS an option

Disheartened. Disenchanted. Dismayed. Or how about Disgusted.

For almost six years we've heard George Bush pontificate and bloviate about how he was fighting terrorism over there so we wouldn't have to fight it over here. And how the battle in Iraq really was about terrorism and not an ill-conceived and ill-executed sidetrip to eliminate a tyrant with no direct connections with the REAL enemy , al Qaeda.

And of course how Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are our friends in the Global War on Terror.

I suspect Our Clueless Commander-in-Chief will find a way to distort this latest piece of bad news, that Osama bin Laden and his boys have had a chance to refresh and reinvigorate under the less-than-watchful eye of our ally, General Pervez Musharraf.

I suspect Colonel Klink will seize upon the section of the National Intelligence Estimate that says al Qaeda in Iraq has helped to "energize" extremists and has been a boon to bin Laden's recruiting.

Ignoring the fact that the Iraqi offshoot's biggest recruiting tool has been the United States' occupation of that country.

But at least we can be comforted in knowing our Department of Homeland Security is looking out for us and our "high value" targets like LNG facilities. Can't we?

Maybe we can all move to Tora Bora?
