Bush insults your intelligence...
Bush said this about the war in Iraq and terrorism: Some critics, whom he did not identify, "selectively quoted from this document to make the case that by fighting the terrorists, by fighting in Iraq, we are making our people less secure here at home," Bush said. "This argument buys into the enemy's propaganda that the terrorists attack us because we're provoking them. I would want to remind the American citizens that we were not in Iraq on September the 11th, 2001."
Now, come on... does anyone need it spelled out?
Al Qaeda attacked us on 9/11. Iraq had nothing to do with al Qaeda. Attacking Iraq has made other people - not al Qaeda, other people - angry at us for killing tens of thousands of innocent people. So, now, in addition to fighting al Qaeda, we're also fighting all the Middle Eastern folks who are angry about us invading Iraq.
Can't Bush figure this out? Of course he can. Bush isn't stupid. He just thinks you are.
