Playing into Bin Laden’s Hands

“Right now, the course we're on, we're achieving Bin Laden's ends.”
--Retired general William Odom,
Former head of the National Security Agency

One of the Republican catch phrases this election has been “Who would Al Queda vote for?” Given the results of the current US policy, the answer is clearly George Bush. By invading Iraq, Bush managed to simultaneously take resources away from the hunt for Bin Laden, turn world sentiment against America, provide new terrorist hiding places in a destabilized Iraq, and improve terrorist recruiting by enflaming Arab anger throughout the Middle East. Al Queda would gladly vote for Bush if they could. But if America really wants to put terrorism on the run, we must vote for John Kerry.
