Bush's Al Qaeda warning falls flat

July 26, 2007

Re "Bush ties Al Qaeda in Iraq to Sept. 11," July 25

President Bush tells us, "Al Qaeda in Iraq is run by foreign leaders loyal to Osama bin Laden

cold-blooded killers who murder the innocent to achieve Al Qaeda's political objectives." Our president does not realize how hard it is to believe anything he says regarding foreign leaders who are loyal to Bin Laden. Al Qaeda started out as an insurgency working for American interests. Bin Laden worked for us. We have been told he turned against us; the how, when or why is not said.

Bush's Al Qaeda warning falls flat

The list of lies that led us into the war in Iraq is long. The attacks of 9/11 are used as justification for all of Bush's questionable actions. Bin Laden, as a scapegoat, has served this administration well. Bush has full expectations that we are willing to support his continued blood-shedding to achieve political objectives.

When the president says -- as he often does -- that we must stop the insurgents in Iraq or they will follow us home, does he really believe these people don't have maps? Does he think they'd couldn't find the U.S. without being led here by following our troop ships or cargo planes?

This is just another in a long line of absurd statements that illustrate our chief executive is an incompetent whose actions would be almost amusing if the body count from his disastrous decisions weren't so high.

I have one statement regarding Bush's new push to tie Al Qaeda, Iraq and 9/11: My God, man, give it up!
