In Brief: Hamid Karzai Drinks the Bush Chowder:
Here's the President of Poppystan talking about terrorism, joining George Bush in a vicious rape of AP reporter Jennifer Loven at yesterday's joint press meet at the White House: "They came to America on September 11th, but they were attacking you before September 11th in other parts of the world. We are a witness in Afghanistan to what they are and how they can hurt. You are a witness in New York. Do you forget people jumping off the 80th floor or 70th floor when the planes hit them? Can you imagine what it will be for a man or a woman to jump off that high? Who did that? And where are they now? And how do we fight them, how do we get rid of them, other than going after them? Should we wait for them to come and kill us again? That's why we need more action around the world, in Afghanistan and elsewhere, to get them defeated -- extremism, their allies, terrorists and the like."

What inspired this bizarro rant about imagining people jumping from tall burning buildings? Loven had asked Bush, in light of the NIE, "why have you continued to say that the Iraq war has made this country safer?" It was just after Bush gave his pissy little answer that he told John "No Soul" Negroponte to declassify part of the NIE.

If you question the Iraq war, you may as well be shoving those 9/11 jumpers out of the windows yourself, no?

Tomorrow: Back to evil.
