Pelosi still clueless about War on Terror

Could she get it less?

House Dem Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a response to President Bush's speech on Iraq, specifically criticizing his remarks about 9/11 and its role in changing our perspective on global terror.

"The President's frequent references to the terrorist attacks of September 11 show the weakness of his arguments. He is willing to exploit the sacred ground of 9/11, knowing that there is no connection between 9/11 and the war in Iraq."

Yeah, Nance, I suppose that' "no connection" thing is true -- in the same sense that the Germans had nothing to do with the attack on Pearl Harbor. Yet, we went to war against them as well as the Japanese and Italians in WWII.

Perhaps it was because then as now, some people understood that the conflict and the dangers were far broader than a single event.

Nancy also criticizes the president for not outlining an exit strategy for Iraq.

Exit strategies are for losers. We intend to win.

What I can't figure out is if she's cowardly, stupid or both.
