When terrorists give you lemons
Today's bloggerA House committee report confirms what everyone but the Bush administration and its supporters already suspected: America is less safe now than we were right after 9/11.
The terrorist threat facing the United States has grown since Sept. 11, 2001, despite the U.S.-led war on terrorism, according to a new congressional report (see GSN, Sept. 11).

The al-Qaeda terrorist network has replaced leaders killed or captured, and Iraq has served as a breeding ground and a training opportunity for new terrorists, says the report issued yesterday by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the Los Angeles Times reported.


Unfortunately, it looks like the Democrats are rushing to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory:
The report was approved by the Republican-led committee on party lines, with Democrats complaining that it was excessively alarmist and questioning the timing of its release just weeks before congressional elections.

Americans “do not need the House Intelligence Committee to remind them” of the al-Qaeda threat, Democrats said in a statement.


No, but what Americans do need the House Democrats to remind them is that the Bush administration's collossal blunder in Iraq and its overall my-way-or-the-highway foreign policy over the last five years has put us in greater danger and will continue to increase the threat to all of us! If this isn't a crystal clear "This is why you need to vote their asses out" moment, I don't know what is.

Or, you know, we could just bend over and take it. Whatever.

Ugh, you are so right. It's disgusting. A classic case of candy-ass Democrats being, well, candy-asses.

Why is it that the Democrats have such superior values, and have such an important calling to fight the forces of evil (read: Bush administration policies)...and yet the Dems consistently act like such cowardly wusses? What are we so scared of?

Sometimes I hate us. Where is the damn leadership?
