Osama Bin Forgotten

President Bush in Saturday's radio address, talking about Iraq:

We went to war because we were attacked[.]

Porter Goss on why we can't catch Osama:

When you go to the question of dealing with sanctuaries in sovereign states, you’re dealing with a problem of our sense of international obligation, fair play.

Bush on September 11:

We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts, and those who harbor them.

Now go see how Kristen Breitweiser feels about this.

No matter what the merits (or lack of) or realities of Goss's statement, it's 180 degree turn from the big swinging dick myth that the media has perpetuated about Bush's tough war on terror. It's at odds with Bush's promise to get Osama "dead or alive." It's at odds with the entire Bush Doctrine, at least iterations 1-8 of the Bush Doctrine.

This should ignite a shitstorm. It won't.
