"Who writes this stuff?"
-Krusty the Clown
"Iraq, if it is prosperous and stable, in a different kind of Middle East, is going to be the death knell for terrorism," National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice reportedly said yesterday.
What's interesting about this comment is that it breaks rank and suggests that victory in the "war on terror" is within sight, even if it isn't close.
"... I would just remind people, when you're dealing with a society like Saddam Hussein's, you're not going to know very much about it," Rice said on Sunday. (Thanks to Josh Marshall for pointing this quote out.)
Criticism of U.S. President George W. Bush encourages the enemies in the "war on terror," Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld reportedly said yesterday. Strangely he did not then say that statements like the one he had just made add fuel to the conspiracy theorist fire.
