Just yesterday White House Propaganda Minister Tony Snow attacked Al Gore for noting that the President has tried time and time again to link Al Qaeda and Iraq, and yesterday Bush did it again. Bush is claiming that because Bin Laden realized the strategic advantage of killing Americans right there on his doorstop in Iraq, this somehow justifies our continued occupation of that country.
Bush is an idiot, and he's killing Americans by his actions.
UPDATE: And the administration is shoveling out this propaganda to conservative bloggers in the guise of "a senior administration official" (Shocker: the propagandists don't have the guts to attribute their names to the lies). These people are so full of shit.
