A Case of Mistaken Identiy, Again

European intelligence experts now report that George Bush's claims of capturing the number three al Qaeda leader was a case of "mistaken identity." This is hardly the first time for George Bush. After all, when Bush claimed to be going after a country which had weapons of mass destruction and which was assisting terrorists, this must have been Iran or North Korea. It certainly didn't apply to Iraq.

Sometimes the invasion of Iraq reminds me of the old joke of a group of monks studying ancient texts. Suddenly one of them realizes they have been making a grave mistake for centuries as he discovered that one word had been copied incorrectly. The correct word was celebrate.

Sometimes I wonder if Bush just confused intelligence reports on Iran and Iraq. After all, it is only a one letter difference.
