What's Good for the Cooked Goose... 

MSNBC - Avoiding attacking suspected terrorist mastermind
With Tuesday’s attacks, Abu Musab Zarqawi, a Jordanian militant with ties to al-Qaida, is now blamed for more than 700 terrorist killings in Iraq.

But NBC News has learned that long before the war the Bush administration had several chances to wipe out his terrorist operation and perhaps kill Zarqawi himself — but never pulled the trigger.

In June 2002, U.S. officials say intelligence had revealed that Zarqawi and members of al-Qaida had set up a weapons lab at Kirma, in northern Iraq, producing deadly ricin and cyanide.

The Pentagon quickly drafted plans to attack the camp with cruise missiles and airstrikes and sent it to the White House, where, according to U.S. government sources, the plan was debated to death in the National Security Council.
Remember when all of those stupid email rumors were flying around about how Clinton had let bin Laden get away when he had the chance to stop him? Well, here's the thing, those rumors were NOT TRUE. This story PROBABLY is. AND this happened AFTER Bush declared war on terrorism.

I swear, if Bush wins his election in 2004, every Republican in the country ought to be forced to be tattooed across the forehead with the word "hypocrite" in bold red letters.
