If fear fails, what's next?

They diverted crucial personnel and supplies from the pursuit of bin Laden in favor of their hungrily desired war in Iraq. They based the Iraq war on finding stockpiles of illegal weapons and disrupting Saddam’s ties to al Queda--neither of which has been shown to exist...

This is not to say that our country is immune from terrorism; quite the opposite. Mr. Bush’s actions since 9/11 have added to the fires of hatred directed toward this nation. But the issue regarding Mr. Bush and his crew is that they have squandered their credibility with the American people...

With just over five months to go before election day, it must be asked: How far would they go?
