(Breitbart) In a rare concession to critics of the Iraq war, President George W. Bush agreed that "mistakes have been made" but said US-led reconstruction and security efforts were making solid progress. "Reconstruction has not always gone as well as we had hoped, primarily because of the security challenges on the ground," he said in formal remarks on Iraq ahead of the war-torn country's crucial December 15 elections.
"Withdrawing on an artificial deadline would endanger the American people, would harm our military and make the Middle East less stable," he said. "It would give the terrorists exactly what they want."
(Al Jazeera) Al Zawahiri: "All the lies that [US President George] Bush tries to delude the Americans with, saying that he destroyed half, or three quarters of al-Qaida are but nonsense merely in his own head," al-Zawahiri said in the video.
(NY Times) Al Gore: "He betrayed this country! He played on our fears. He took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure preordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place."
Who’s fooling who? Liberals seem to think they should trust the statements made by Zarqawi over any statement made by Bush's administration, or in the military?
Better question, why to the current political left and Zawahiri seem to have the same agenda? That in itself is pretty troubling. I guess politics makes strange bedfellows.
