Helping out Osama

Here’s something that definitely needed saying:

Yesterday’s bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad was the latest evidence that America has taken a country that was not a terrorist threat and turned it into one.

Of course, we should be glad that the Iraq war was swifter than even its proponents had expected, and that a vicious tyrant was removed from power. But the aftermath has been another story. America has created — not through malevolence but through negligence — precisely the situation the Bush administration has described as a breeding ground for terrorists: a state unable to control its borders or provide for its citizens’ rudimentary needs.

As the rest of the article argues, by invading Iraq we have done exactly the opposite of what President Bush said we were going to do. No, not finding the weapons of mass destruction, which we still haven’t done. No, not making life better for the Iraqi people, as we haven’t really done that either. I’m talking about making the United States safer from the threat of terrorism. Instead, we’ve made things even worse. Way to go, Shrub.
