"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Co-Chair of Iraq Study Group - Route al Qaeda from Pakistan - Left and Right Unite!

THIS JUST IN: well yesterday:

"Former Rep. Lee Hamilton, who also served as the vice chairman of the 9/11 commission, says the Iraq war distracted the United States when it had al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden on the run in the tribal region between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

He says it's now time to finish the job."

This latest assessment is based upon the recently release National Intelligence Estimate (Democrats have failed this "intelligence" test). Why does the Co-Chair of the Democrat Majority revered Iraq Study Group believe the U.S. should strike?

"If there's anything we should have learned, it's that we must not let al Qaeda have a sanctuary, which they certainly do in Pakistan today."

If there's anything we should have learned, it's that we must not let al Qaeda have a sanctuary!!!!! Democrats UNITE!!! It's time to leave the distraction that Iraq is behind!!! Take to the hills of Pakistan, which according to the sage Co-Chair it:
"has to be carefully calibrated, worked out with the Pakistanis. We will finish it off in every corner of the country.

I think we have to find ways and means, perhaps it's use of covert actions, perhaps it's use of special operations, perhaps it's the pursuit of the Taliban when they're in Afghanistan, to let us go after them as they move back into Pakistan.

Whatever it is, I do not find acceptable a sanctuary for al Qaeda in Pakistan. We have to be able to go after them."
I find this refreshing as it is a rare occasion when I find myself agreeing with a Democrat, retired or not. In these days of partisan polarization it is a welcome moment when sides of the aisle can come together in a way that they haven't done since perhaps the days following September 11, 2001.

Let this be a wake up call to all - A call to both sides of the aisle - Pakistan, the haven where al Qaeda is regenerating.

A call to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid - bring the vote up again - let's take it from the distraction, take it to where the enemy truly is!!!

Wait a second...? What about the distraction? Might it not become a nation, like Afghanistan was that would be a haven for Iraq if we leave? Nah, it's just a distraction...the Iraq Study Group has spoken.
