The New Most Offensive Katrina Quote

"I believe the devastating hurricane that hit the United States occurred because people in Iraq or Afghanistan -- maybe a mother who had lost her son or a son whose parents were killed or a woman who was raped -- were praying for God and God accepted their prayers." -- Abu Musab al-Zarqawi

The right will, of course, pounce on this quote as evidence that those of us who have spent time and effort to make sure the Bush administration is held accountable for its inaction and poor judgement are comforting the enemy.
But the left needs to hold its ground and make sure that the truth is understood: That the administration, through five years of poor judgement, bad faith and malfeasance has created a situation in which al-Zarqawi and his ilk have become forces of influence in Iraq.
Bush has made his bed on several continents now. His lies cannot be allowed to be enough to get him out of the trouble he has created.
