Bush Starts Push to Defend Iraq War

ABC News calls Bush’s radio address on Iraq as the start of a five day push to defend the Iraq war. His radio address today was more of the same as he confused Iraq with the original terrorist attacks of 9/11. He also continued his claims that we are fighting terrorists in Iraq so that we don’t have to fight them here, ignoring Saudi and Israeli studies showing that the Iraqi insurgency is primarily made up of people radicalized by the US invasion. So he’s creating new terrorists to kill, and doing nothing about the original ones who actually attacked us.

Hopefully Bush’s five day push to defend Iraq will be no more successful than his recent push to promote his poorly conceived plans for Social Security.
