Here's the AP story via ABC
President Bush on Tuesday lashed out at critics who say that al-Qaida's operation in Iraq is distinct from terrorists who attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.
"The merger between al-Qaida and its Iraqi affiliate is an alliance of killers and that is why the finest military in the world is on their trail," Bush said.
Citing security details he declassified for his speech, Bush described al-Qaida's burgeoning operation in Iraq as a direct threat to the United States. Bush accused critics in Congress of misleading the American public by suggesting otherwise.
"That's like watching a man walk into a bank with a mask and a gun and saying, 'He's probably just there to cash a check,'" Bush told troops at Charleston Air Force Base.
And here are the comments from the ABC story:
Loved this one:
"Hell, it's gotten to the point where parents in America have begun telling their children " Don't bush me!" when they catch them in a lie!"
Question -- do you say al-qaida or do you say al-qaeda?
I googled al-qaida and got
did you mean al-qaeda
