"Ten terrorism plots foiled"...so what? Dozens have succeeded!

Yesterday Bush tried to distract us yet again from what's really going on, declaring in a speech that the United States and its partners had disrupted 10 serious plots since 9/11.

Bush said nothing, of course, about the possible reasons why there have been so many terrorism plots recently, or about the dozens that have succeeded, resulting in hundreds of deaths.

Democratic Senator Harry Reid had the best response to Bush's latest attempt to shore up his ratings: "The truth is, the administration's mishandling of the war in Iraq has made us less safe, and Iraq risks becoming what it was not before the war: a training ground for terrorists."
