Houston Chronicle: Study shows Bush war created and motivated terrorists
http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/world/3269420

WASHINGTON - New investigations by the Saudi Arabian government and an Israeli think tank both of which painstakingly analyzed the backgrounds and motivations of hundreds of foreigners entering Iraq to fight the United States have found that the vast majority of them are not former terrorists and became radicalized by the war.

The studies cast serious doubt on President Bush's claim that those responsible for some of the worst violence are terrorists who seized on the opportunity to make Iraq the "central front" in a battle against the United States.

1. They needed to do a study to prove that?
Shit, any person with half a brain should know that this is the case, we aren't helping ANYONE except for Halliburton over there, anyone who thinks otherwise is afflicted with the Ostrich syndrom.

2. Maybe it'll help it sink in with the people who aren't paying attention...
...which is most of the populace.

And I don't think most of them have half a brain - I think they have multiple jobs, fewer services, lower pay, and a lot of other crap thanks to Bush**'s economy, and they just don't have the time to get themselves informed.

NGU.

3. ???????
"to make Iraq the "central front" in a battle against the United States." I thought it was the other way around. Shit-fer-brains sez WE made Iraq the front for fighting terra-ists. Didn't he? Jeez, the effort to 'Keep America Baffled' just goes on and on.

4. A Repuke talking head on a local TV station recently opined that they
should all be destroyed, implying we must "kill 'em, kill 'em all, possibly meaning ever last one who has or might ever become radicalized by our actions or on their own, or at least that was my take on his commentary.
