Grasping at Straw Terrorists
President Bush on Friday blamed al Qaeda supporter Abu Musab al-Zarqawi for beheading American Nicholas Berg and cited him as an example of Saddam Hussein's 'terrorist ties' before the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

Bush's revival of accusations linking Saddam to terrorism comes as the president faces growing doubts among Americans over his Iraq policy.

At a fund-raising lunch in Bridgeton, Missouri, Bush said Zarqawi was an example of the threat posed by the ousted Iraqi leader. 'We knew he (Saddam) had terrorist ties. The person responsible for the Berg death, Zarqawi, was in and out of Baghdad prior to our arrival, for example,' Bush said.[Nitpicker emphasis]
Revival, crusade ... do we see a pattern here? Jeebus, this guy just doesn't give up ... what color is the sky on his planet?

Somebody really should figure out how to slap a muzzle on Emperor Chimpy without it being noticeable. Considering that he's supposed to have had three chances to take Zarkawi out, if I were Bush (or, more accurately, one of Bush's handlers), I don't think I'd spend too much time pointing to all the evil things he's had a chance to do in the last couple of years.
