Attention Bush Voters, Part Who Cares?
(Just Go Cheney Yourselves)
Our "Catastrophic Success":
"The Iraq conflict, while not a cause of extremism, has become a cause for extremists," (CIA Director Porter) Goss told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.But what the hell do you care? The vast majority of Bush voters don't live anywhere near a potential terrorist target. I know all of us here in New York City are looking forward to your tears and sympathy and visits to the next Ground Zero. I bet there'll be really cool hats and buttons for sale...
"Those jihadists who survive will leave Iraq experienced in and focused on acts of urban terrorism. They represent a potential pool of contacts to build transnational terrorist cells, groups and networks in Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other countries," he said...
FBI Director Robert Mueller testified al Qaeda remained intent on attacking the United States, likely by using low-tech methods of the kind employed in 2001 when terrorists killed about 3,000 people after hijacking airliners with box-cutters.
Goss said al Qaeda or another group would likely try to eclipse the Sept. 11 attacks by using nuclear, chemical or biological weapons that authorities say could be stolen or purchased from nations such as North Korea.
