George Bush's team once again let Al Queda get away.

He chased them from Afghanistan into Pakistan where now the government protects them.

In other words, Bush's politices gave them a far stronger safe haven. We dare not mess with Pakistan.

Why aren't Democrats screaming that this is treason, cowardice, surrender?

Most of the "insurgents" in Iraq are NOT linked to Al Queda despite administration lies to the contrary as explained in the NYT opnion piece today.

But when we know about the REAL Al Queda -- BUSH LETS THEM GO.
