Bin Laden’s Alchemy Pt. 2

From this morning’s AP:

“Those who advocate a sudden withdrawal from Iraq should answer a few simple questions,” Cheney said, such as whether the United States would be “better off or worse off” with terrorist leaders such as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Osama bin Laden or Ayman al-Zawahiri in control of Iraq.

Those who advocated a preemptive war in Iraq should answer a simple question too, Mr. Vice President: Why, after completing our “mission accomplished” goal of ousting Saddam Hussein (which was evidently your #1 priority in the War on Terrorism) is Osama bin Laden poised to take over Iraq?
