Osama to Bush: Thanks again, pal!

This is from another fine blog, The Left Coaster. I would have done my own story and linked to the LA Times article they cite, but I couldn't get registered... The link is in the article.

What it comes down to is that Osama is all but sending the Bushies a solid-gold ham for the holidays. Bush talked about the wonders of Pakistan, even as they admitted that they had halted the search. Crummy's war-on-a-shoestring in Aghanistan was responsible for his escape in the first place. Now we're bogged down in Iraq, which went from secular (though brutal) government to haven for radical (and brutal) Islamists. And it's only costing us about $200,000,000,000. Unless you add the cost of missile defense, which has never had a successful test. Although it's being deployed. Then the total is more along the lines of $350,000,000,000. And only 1,300 Americans have been killed since 9/11! There. Don't we all feel better now?
