President Bush continues to insist that there is a direct connection between the perpetrators of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the “folks that are bombing innocent people in Iraq.” In fact, according to The New York Times, Bush mentioned al-Qaida no fewer than 30 times in public remarks Thursday.
The marker of what will go down in history as “Bush’s folly” is that this idiot of a president invaded a country that had absolutely nothing to do with terrorist attacks on the United States or WMD threats to America while coddling the military junta in Pakistan, which was guilty on both counts.
An Iraqi deputy prime minister is recovering after a dual explosion Friday that left six people dead. The assault, believed to have indirect ties to al-Qaida, took place as a prayer group was gathering at the home of the wounded official, Salam Z. al-Zobaee. A cook reportedly helped a suicide bomber sneak onto the property.
