The Australian: Editorial: Coalition of the whining still wrong on Iraq [April 21, 2004]: "APRIL 2003 was a great month for those who believed the people of Iraq should be freed from the grip of tyranny, and that if they were it would make the world a safer place. April 2004 has so far been a great month for those who believed they shouldn't, and that it wouldn't."
A great article from down under.

RealClear Politics - Commentary: "Despite the best efforts of his enemies and the media, President Bush has politically weathered the latest violence in Iraq and implications that he could have stopped the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
Bush's overall approval rating has taken a hit - his early-April average is 48 percent, down from 54 percent in January - but it's evident that recent bloody insurgent activity in Iraq did not constitute a general uprising in the country and that no conclusive intelligence ever got to the White House in advance of 9/11.

"Pretty clearly, Iraq is not Vietnam, as charged by Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), chief attack dog for Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.). "
Just let things cool down in Iraq, and watch the numbers soar.

Sunday, April 18, 2004 - Top Stories - Officials: Chemical Attacks Thwarted in Jordan: " An Al Qaeda (search)-linked terrorist cell recently dismantled in Jordan was plotting to detonate a chemical bomb capable of killing thousands of people and to attack the U.S. Embassy and prime minister's office with poison gas, officials said Saturday."
Aha! So there are WMD destruction available to Al Queda. Wonder where they come from. Some of those unaccounted for in Iraq, perhaps. Saddam said he had 'em, the UN said he had 'em, and every intelligence agency in the world said he had 'em. I guess it is too much to ask for a little honesty in an American political campaign, where the goal is not to tell the truth but to damage your opponent no matter how outrageous your lie is.
