No Way the Devil Would Be This Incompetent ...

First, intelligence experts conclude the Iraq War has actually fueled global terrorism.

Now, a slew of revelations from Bob Woodward's new book:

While receiving grim assessments from the military, White House officials continued to provide Congress with altered -- and decidedly more upbeat -- predictions about Iraq;

Nearly everyone urged Dumbya to get rid of Donald Rumsfeld when it became clear Iraq was going south (everyone, that is, with the exception of Dick Cheney and Mrs. Donald Rumsfeld);

Rumsfeld allegedly scoffed at reports from U.S. generals in Iraq who suggested it was time to correct past mistakes in that country;

Oh, and two CIA officials say they got "the brush-off" from then-national security advisor Condoleezza Rice two months before 9-11 when they tried warning her of an imminent al Qaeda attack.

Wow, wow and wow. The Bush Administration appears to be going down faster than Mark Foley at a Pokémon tournament.

Well, it was just a joke, Brett. Granted, not a good one, but still ...

My comment was rude, and I apologize. But I maintain that hurt children -- and the people who would hurt them -- are not funny, and " it's just a joke" doesn't always warrant absolution.
