More False Connections

Refusal to See Sheehan Is Second-Guessed: "Bush aides said that, beginning on Monday, he will try to bolster support for his Iraq policy by giving three speeches in military settings over the next two weeks. They said he will argue that just as 'the greatest generation' saw World War II through to victory, the nation must be patient while today's military combats terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan. Citing the approaching fourth anniversary of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Bush will contend that the ideology of terrorism and the willingness to kill innocents link the insurgency in Iraq to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and to last month's bombings in London."
If you are going to try and re-write history, why wait until the historian's get a shot at it? Let's re-write now! Take the facts, twist them early and hard, and see if you can line them up with your own picture of reality. Iraq has nothing to do with 9-11. Iraq bears no resemblance to the war of "the greatest generation." Refusing to stand in public and answer questions about the death of thousands of soldiers is not leadership, it is cowardice.
