Creating your own demise

A NYT headline says Spy Agencies Say Iraq War Worsens Terror Threat
WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 A stark assessment of terrorism trends by American intelligence agencies has found that the American invasion and occupation of Iraq has helped spawn a new generation of Islamic radicalism and that the overall terrorist threat has grown since the Sept. 11 attacks.

The classified National Intelligence Estimate attributes a more direct role to the Iraq war in fueling radicalism than that presented either in recent White House documents or in a report released Wednesday by the House Intelligence Committee, according to several officials in Washington involved in preparing the assessment or who have read the final document.

We have created the condition the Iraq War and Occupation was supposed to prevent--something more than a few intelligence experts have said in the past. In the era of the spy, the spys have no credibility with the government.

I cannot wait to see the Bush Administration and Congress put lipstick on this pig.

Official Republican response:

Stay the course. (9/11). Fight them there or well have to fight them here. (9/11). Stand up, stand down. (9/11). Freedom on the march. (9/11). We're preventing terror attacks, but we can't tell you how because it's classified.

I just caught some clips for the Sunday Funnies (Meet the Press, etc.) Looks like I was right.
