Steven Hayes and The Iraq-al Qaeda Connection: The Voice Crying in The Wilderness

Steven Hayes has a long piece in the latest Weekly Standard, "The Mother of All Connections," detailing the long relationship between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden's organization. The article will take some time to read, but it's full of well-supported conclusions. I hope it gains some attention from others in the news media.

One of Hayes' important obervations: The comments of Democrat politicians and old media news analysts and anchors, claiming no relationship between Hussein and al-Qaeda, "reveal far more about politics in America than they do about the Iraq-al Qaeda relationship."

Sure enough.

It is a shame these Democrats are working so hard to harm our president that they are willing to get us all killed just to gain power. They willfully ignore such powerful pieces like Mr. Hayes just wrote because they know that when we are all dead from the weapons of mass destruction that it will be alot easier for them to get elected because only they will be around to vote. I was listening to Mr. Sean Hannity the other day and he suggested that the bombs in the tubes in London could be a test for exploding nucular bombs over here. That is a truly frightening thought and if true it really shows that in what could be our last days on this earth there is simply no excuse for political debates to slow down whatever our president tells us he needs to do. We need to place our trust in the man who was elected to lead us in exactly the same manner as he has placed his trust in God.

Dear Blythe: True satire must bear some resemblance to that which it satirizes, so that the reader can recognize the irony. The ability to do that is what distinguishes true satire from ham-handed imitations like what you have written.

Love and kisses to you.

As I said yesterday, "Democrats, pacifist, and other fellow travelers who demand we get out of Iraq do so to advance their political agendas, not to make America more secure."

Who knew Hedgehogs could fight?
