3,000 terrorist attacks worldwide in 2004, 11,000 in 2005 – you do the math

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.
