OBL May Be Dead, But Bush Still Sucks
My favorite part of this version of the OBL is Dead story is the last line:
Senior U.S. intelligence figures have cautioned against assuming that bin Laden's death or capture would automatically have a substantial impact in the war on terrorism.
They note that the death in June of al Qaeda's leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, has failed to lead to any let-up in the violence there.
Any logicians out there care to weigh in?
Let's see, this latest version of argument-by-assertion in order to end the story on a "Bush still sucks" note, is brought to you by a few "anonymous sources" in either the State Department or CIA or both (partisan Democrats work in those places? Really?), who seem to possess perfect metaphysical certainty as to what the exact level of violence in Iraq would have been for the last four months had Zarqawi not been otherwise occupied by heavenly copulating with his beautiful 72 Virgins. Like the beauty, above, for example. Maybe the Z-Man will give Osama sloppy seconds on that one.
Thanks for passing along the omniscience, Mr. Journalist!
