Putting the troops in danger

Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals.
--"Bush's Brain," Karl Rove, yesterday

So, let's get this straight. Bush had the intelligence and facts fixed around the policy of starting a war of aggression in Iraq, lied to Congress and the UN, ignored that the UN weapons inspectors found nothing, ignored the advice of General Shineseki that an occupation would require hundreds of thousands of troops, failed to provide adequate body armor and armor for vehicles, told the insurgents to "bring 'em on" (which I think also may have been reported on Al Jazeera), has had thousands of Iraqis arrested and thrown into horrible prisons where many are tortured, promoted or gave medals to the architects of this disaster, and continues to defend each and every crime to this very day--and it is Dick Durbin who is putting our troops in danger.

No more needs to be said about the hypocrisy of Karl Rove.
