The Memory Hole

Something bothered me about the recent triumphalism this past week about the killing of Zarqawi in Iraq. Not that he was dead mind you, the Nick Berg video in which Zarqawi participated was enough to merit him sub-human status worthy of the violent death he received.

No, it was this story from 2004 detailing how we had many chances to take out Zarqawi before the war began but chose not to. The most revealing quote?

“People were more obsessed with developing the coalition to overthrow Saddam than to execute the president’s policy of preemption against terrorists,” according to terrorism expert and former National Security Council member Roger Cressey

In other words, we were more interested in building the phony case for our bullshit war than in taking out a known terrorist who was later responsible for killing thousands.

I'm sorry, but if you still vote Republican you either can't or you won't read.

and you know what else....the last time I checked we still haven't put proper resources to finding that guy hiding in the mountains of Pakistan/Afganistan? Remember that guy who actually did have a role in hurting thousands of innocent americans...that was where we needed to finish the job first anyway....oh yea him.

Osama really has "bin ignored".

Hey there...

Came across your blog by accident, and have enjoyed the first couple of posts. I'm going to read more now, but just wanted you to know that I like what I've found.
