No way! Why didn't anyone warn us?

Yesterday CIA Director Porter J. Goss told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence that "Islamic extremists are exploiting the Iraqi conflict to recruit new anti-U.S. jihadists."

No! How did that happen? Why did that happen?

Goss then warned that "These jihadists who survive will leave Iraq experienced and focused on acts of urban terrorism. They represent a potential pool of contacts to build transnational terrorist cells, groups, and networks in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and other countries."

They're a little slow up there on Capitol Hill, but eventually they get it. Unfortunately, people are dying - and will continue dying - because they didn't get it sooner.
