    Bush losing the war against al qaeda

    1) Bush lost bin laden at Tora Bora
    2) Bush diverted us into a bloody and costly war of choice against a secular arab dictator in iraq, with no collaborative ties to al qaeda
    3) Bush Admin pulls the plug on a Navy Seal covert op to pakistan to kill Al Zawahiri - Al Qaeda's number two man
    4) Bush backed Mussharf's withdrawl from the northwest pakistan provinces, creating a safe haven for al qaeda there.



    Bush’s own intelligence community is about to drive a stake through his and Cheney’s war on terror. Six years, billions of dollars, and a war of choice have now confirmed that it was all a waste of time, because Al Qaeda has regrouped to a pre-9/11 level, thanks in large part to a renewed base of operations that Bush encouraged Musharraf to withdraw from, and due to a war that crippled our effort against Al Qaeda.

    In other words, the war in Iraq has done nothing to stop Al Qaeda. And after billions of dollars, we still don't know any more than we did before.

    Yup, on one hand they "don't know" on the other they know.... wonders will never cease. This from a CIA that has spent the last 4 years undermining the President and this administration. This CIA attempted ILLEGALLY to influence the 2004 Presidential election with " leaks".

    Wait, isn't this the gang that had it "ALL WRONG" on Iraq, and now your blowing their horn? Talk about partisan bullshit.

    Yeah but Ret.Gunny don't you remember all the hoopla about how Bush was "restructuring" the CIA and making it more reliable?

    Remember Porter Goss? He's Bush's man isn't he?

    Or maybe you're trying to say that the "security president" has simply had his thumb up his ass since 9-11 as far as correcting the "failings" of the CIA?

    So all of his rhetoric about how he's made America "safer" has just been horse shit?

    After all, if the President of the United States is not relying on the premier intelligence agency for vital information on national security why......that must mean that his dog Barney alone is calling the shots!

    I'm sorry but I'm just not comfortable with that.

    So, the CIA is staffed by a bunch of traitors? Any proof of your allegations. And no, the CIA didn't have it " 'ALL WRONG' on Iraq". In fact intelligence assessment provided to the White House predicted the course of events that has transpired since the invasion of Iraq. <a href=http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18854414/>CIA warned of risks of war in the Mideast</a>.

    The ones who got it wrong, willfully so, were the Bush administration in pushing claims of a reconstituted Iraqi nuclear weapons program and Iraq/Al Qaeda links they KNEW to be questionable, at best...Outright lies at worst...To justify the invasion of Iraq.

    Yes but when you're going to screw up as often as the Bush White House does you have to have plenty of scapegoats to blame things on.

    After all, if you plan on completely destroying our country from the inside out it is very important that you never be held accountable for anything your administration does. For instance....

    When you fail to read your PDB's or read them but are too dense to make any sense of them you simply blame the CIA.

    When you fail to heed the warnings of the previous administration of an emminent terror strike you simply blame your own lack of action on the previous administration.

    When you invade another sovereign nation intending to install your own brand of puppet government and the strategy fails you simply blame the people you invaded.

    When the press attacks you for your failed strategy you simply blame the press for telling the truth.

    When the vast majority of Americans realize they've been duped and start causing a ruckus you simply blame them and call them names like, "cut and runners, cowards, appeasers, RINO's, or traitors." That way you make it look like your failure is their fault.

    Haven't you learned anything from the Bushies Bully?
