File Under: Duh.

Sure, it took billions of dollars and countless lives (well, some lives are counted...3987 U.S. military lives at this time; the U.S. "doesn't count" the number of Iraqis killed in the invasion and ensuing domestic chaos), but the Pentagon has finally figured out what millions of people worldwide knew back in 2003: There was no link between Saddam Hussein's regime and Al-Qaeda.

It bears repeating: the Pentagon, in their own study, have found no links between former Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein's government and Osama bin Laden's pet project, al-Qaeda.

I'm willing to bet somewhere in an undisclosed location, Cheney's trigger finger is getting itchy for some Pentagon ass.

Unfortunately, thanks to the Bush Administration's complete contempt for analysis and planning, along with a docile collaborationist Congress (including the Democrats, let's not forget, who were very quick to beat the war drums), we find ourselves preparing to enter our sixth year of "Operation Destroy America's Economy and Prestige."

Well, that's what we (as a country) deserve for electing the guy everyone would like to have a beer with* rather than the guy (in either election) who had a brain.

*Not me, but I'm picky that way. I like drinking partners who have functioning cerebrums as well as cerebellums, at least at the start of the drinking session.
