Nah... Really?

Stop the presses! Alert the media! Plotz, everybody!

A U.S. "intelligence" report announces that US involvement in Iraq is "a cause celebre for extremists". Nah... Who'd have thunk?

The war in Iraq has become a "cause celebre" for Islamic extremists, breeding deep resentment of the U.S. that probably will get worse before it gets better, federal intelligence analysts conclude in a report at odds with President Bush's portrayal of a world growing safer.

In the bleak report, declassified and released Tuesday on Bush's orders, the nation's most veteran analysts conclude that despite serious damage to the leadership of al-Qaida, the threat from Islamic extremists has spread both in numbers and in geographic reach.

It's not like this isn't what all the people who are against this stupid, misbegotten, useless, horrid war have been saying and knowing and pointing out and writing books about and screaming like Cassandras in the wilderness since the "mission" was "accomplished". Apparently, Bush needs an "intelligence" report to get the point.
And still he continues to defend the indefensible and to blame Clinton for everything.
Why, I ask again, is he still in power? We should all be up in arms and charging the White House. All we do is kvetch and lament and rant and rave. This frustration is exhausting me. I can't keep up with the cynicism of this Administration.
