“Some Democrats, breaking ranks from their leadership, today said the death of terrorist leader Abu Musab Zarqawi in Iraq was a stunt to divert attention from an unpopular and hopeless war. ‘This is just to cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer’ for Iraqi civilians being killed by the U.S. military and his own sagging poll numbers, said Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat. ‘
The nixing of Zarqawi was a watershed moment for Iraqis, Americans, and the rest of the world; and to minimize it by playing politics completely ignores the greater mission of defeating terrorists. In the war on terrorism, we really should all be on the same side.
Too bad democrats such as Murtha and his minions are too blinded by political opportunism to be of like mind.
