Raging Right Wing Republican

For those of us who are politically informed, and therefore Republican.

"U.S. and Iraqi forces have captured a top al Qaeda in Iraq leader who ordered the bombing in February of a Shiite Muslim shrine in Samarra that started a wave of ferocious sectarian killings, Iraqi officials said Sunday," the Washington Post reports from Baghdad.

Well. What to make of this?

Clearly, it's all a lie. Everybody knows that al Qaeda has nothing to do with Iraq. It's just a distraction. We need to forget about Iraq and focus on the War on Terror, which isn't even a "real" war, anyway.

Even more preposterous is this claim that "an intelligence officer for then-President Saddam Hussein" joined al Qaeda.

Saddam Hussein was a secularist. Al Qaeda is the home of religious fanatics. The two could never work together to thwart a mutual enemy! Everybody knows that, except maybe the lunatics off in the boondocks who watch Fox "News," but what can you expect from those hicks?

The kind of transformation the Post is describing would violate the laws of physics. It's just another example of the Bush administration's War on Science, and it's sad to see the Post drinking this neocon Koolaid.
