Also, here, the Post, which supported and helped lie on behalf of each and every one of Bush/Cheney’s acts of mass murder, now admits to the public that,
“The departure of George W. Bush deprived al-Qaeda of a polarizing American leader who reliably drove recruits and donations to the terrorist group. …
‘They’re highly uncertain about what they’re getting in this new adversary,’ said Paul Pillar, a former CIA counterterrorism official who lectures on national security at Georgetown University. ‘For al-Qaeda, as a matter of image and tone [for some strange reason they still leave out "policy" here], George W. Bush had been a near-perfect foil.’”
May they burn in hell, for at least a little while.
