Nothing If Not Consistent

Yesterday I mentioned the findings of the recent National Intelligence Estimate; it stated that the war in Iraq has -- contrary to the talking points of the White House and its apologists -- fueled global Islamic radicalism and made America less safe.

I also assumed that President Bush's reaction to this report would be the usual; he would dismiss it by simply saying that he disagrees with its findings, as if any fact is somehow subject to debate or outright negation at his whim.

His response today when asked about the report?

"I strongly disagree."

I wish I could claim some sort of preternatural prescience when it comes to such matters, but the unfortunate fact is that the actions of a confused and frightened monkey are never that difficult to predict.

I thought it was adorable how he referred to such criticism as "naive".

What's even funnier is that Condi came out and basically called Clinton a liar. She said that the Bush Admin was never given a strategy on Al Quida and how to combat them. Well news out today show's that Richard Clarke told and showed the 9/11 commission the report that he personally handed to the Admin 4 months after they took office.

Keep the lie going Bush....Stay the course. Douche.

"The unfortunate fact is that the actions of a confused and frightened monkey are never that difficult to predict." I almost peed myself from the mental image this created. Can you predict if Henry Rollins is ever going to call me?
