My Mind, It Explodes


President Bush, trying to defend his war strategy, declassified intelligence Tuesday asserting that Osama bin Laden ordered a top lieutenant in early 2005 to form a terrorist cell that would conduct attacks outside Iraq — and that the United States should be the top target.

The information mirrored a classified bulletin from the Homeland Security Department in March 2005, reporting that bin Laden had enlisted Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, his senior operative in Iraq, to plan potential strikes in the U.S. The warning was described at the time as credible but not specific and did not prompt the administration to raise its national terror alert level.

Bush does realize that 2005 was 2 years after his illegal invasion of Iraq, right?

Ah, but you're assuming he can count.

(I know, cheap shot...)

Does this mean Osama Bin Laden was planning to attack the United States even before 2005 ?

Bush "realizes" nothing. It is not in his lexicon.
He is in full-lying mode from the time he wakes to the time he sleeps. There really is no doubt any longer that he is a criminal fuck, a complete lying piece of shit. Eh???

Why we expect him to act as a "normal" human being, I don;t know. He's a criminal, a miscreant, an aberration, a monster. You know?

He knows what he's doing. Like "states rights" is a dog whistle to a bigot, this is a dog whistle for the pundit-class. The talking heads will look at this information very earnestly with furrowed brows. They will determine that yes indeed, we need to be in Iraq at least another year or so. After all, it's Osama. Osama!

Never once will they stop to think that Osama would not find Iraq hospitable if the Shi'a majority were in control - which they would be if we, you know, left.

You may recall that the Bush Doctrine is all about Preventive War. Teh Commander Guy invaded Iraq because he *knew* Osama was gonna be planning to attack the US two years later and he wanted to stop him. And invading Iraq was the perfect way to stop a guy hiding out in Pakistan.

See? Bush Doctrine vindicated!
