Bush Pounds The War Drums Of Fear....Just In Case You Forgot What He Is All About

"Bush said that despite the absence of a successor on U.S. soil to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the terrorist danger remains potent.

"Bin laden and his terrorist's allies have made their intentions as clear as Lenin and Hitler before them," the president said before the Military Officers Association of America and diplomatic representatives other countries that have suffered terrorist attacks. "The question is `Will we listen? Will we pay attention to what these evil men say?'"

After reading this article you would get the impression that Bush is serious about Bin Laden but that would be a mistake. This little PR campaign designed to scare the shit out of people into voting for Republicans is in full swing and the product they're selling is fear.

"Also absent from the report was any mention of Osama bin Laden. Instead, it recounted among the administration’s successes that “most of those in the Al Qaeda network responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks, including the plot’s mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, have been captured or killed.’’

At a briefing about the report, the White House homeland security adviser, Fran Townsend, said that “bin Laden remains the number-one target, but he’s not the only target.’’

Do you feel any safer with Bush in charge?
