Now we know why he didn't catch Osama

AWol needs the tall bearded one to provide quotes justifying his war in Iraq. From der Fuhrer's speech last night:
Some wonder whether Iraq is a central front in the war on terror. Among the terrorists, there is no debate. Here are the words of Osama bin Laden: This third world war is raging in Iraq. The whole world is watching this war. He says it will end in victory and glory or misery and humiliation.
WIIIAI says that it's the height of chutzpah for Bush to link Iraq and 9/11 repeatedly and then quote the guy whose continued freedom is a sign of the failure to complete job one.

Speaking of job one, Bush seems to be losing in Afghanistan, too. An MH-17 helicopter carrying 17 service members has crashed there, possibly shot down by the Taliban. The fate of the service members is currently unknown.

Billmon points out that Bush is now making a distinction between "terrorists" and "insurgents," apparently because the US military is now negotiating with "insurgents," and he wants to be able to claim that we still don't negotiate with terrorists (although they negotiate with Ariel Sharon all the time).
