Of course Bush says we just can’t compare 2004’s stats with last year’s stats. Oh no, of course not.
Perhaps my favorite part of the new report is the following:
Leaders of al-Qaida lost some control of the terror network last year due to the arrests and deaths of top operational planners…
Sure, the number of terrorist attacks increased four-fold last year, but at least Al Qaeda is less in control. I’m sure the dead will find that very comforting.
If this is success, I have a civil war in Iraq I’d like to sell you.
