Bush seeks political gains from foiled plot
by Olivier Knox - 1 hour, 22 minutes ago

Can you believe this, also, Lieberman still complaining about Lamont saying he doesn't understand the terrorist threat. Iraq is not the war on terror.

These guys are getting desperate. Article below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

CRAWFORD, United States (AFP) - US President George W. Bush seized on a foiled London airline bomb plot to hammer unnamed critics he accused of having all but forgotten the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Weighed down by the unpopular war in Iraq, Bush and his aides have tried to shift the national political debate from that conflict to the broader and more popular global war on terrorism ahead of November 7 congressional elections.

The London conspiracy is "a stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation," the president said on a day trip to Wisconsin.

2. I've seen Lieberman's charges but how is Lamont refuting them?
that I haven't seen. With this crowd he can't just ignore them.
