The President Who Cried Wolf?

Bush is now making claims about Iran supporting terrorism inside of Iraq. The problem is after his previous claims of weapons of mass distruction in Iraq and Iraq supporting terrorism and Iraq having nuclear material, his credibility is a bit lacking. It certainly isn’t hard to believe that Iran would be supporting terrorism within Iraq but he’s going to have something of an uphill battle in convincing us.

And, even if he does, what can we do about it? The insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan have us so occupied that countries like Iran and North Korea are emboldened to take steps they might not have taken had we not committed ourselves to a senseless and open-ended war.

The worst part is that had we stayed out of Iraq, it wouldn’t be providing such a ripe breeding ground for terrorism. Yes, George, you’re really winning that “war on terror.”
