The utter, blinkered idiocy of "staying the course" -- of sending Americans to Iraq, and sending them a second time, and a third, and a fourth, until they get killed or maimed -- the utter de-prioritization of human life, simply so a politician can avoid having to admit a mistake -- that had nothing to do with the tens of thousand individual tragedies darkening the lives of American families, forever -- it isn't Mr. Bush's fault.
The continuing, relentless, remorseless, corrupt and cynical insistence that this conflict somehow is defeating, or containing, or just engaging the people who attacked us on 9/11 -- the total "Alice Through The Looking Glass" quality that ignores that in Iraq, we have made the world safer for Al-Qaeda -- it isn't Mr. Bush's fault!
The fault, brought down -- as if a sermon from this mount of hypocrisy and slaughter, by a nearly anonymous Under-Secretary of Defense -- the fault has tonight been laid on the doorstep of Senator Hillary Clinton and, by extension, at the doorstep of every American -- the now vast majority of us -- who have dared to criticize this war, or protest it, or merely ask questions about it, or simply, plaintively, innocently, honestly, plead, "don't take my son; don't take my daughter."
Bush will never accept blame for this disaster, he has no shame.
