No Relationship?

Stories like this render the Democrats' cut-n-run strategy in Iraq completely incomprehensible by any measure.

As the linked piece indicates, Al Qaeda in Iraq has been told to try to shoot and kill Americans. What? Al Qaeda in Iraq? How can that be?

Let's spell it out for the simple minded. We are fighting terrorists in Iraq. That means that a premature withdrawal would both cede the country to them, and free up time and energy for them to focus on attacking the U.S. rather than fighting in Iraq.

Sure, the cut-n-run crowd will claim there were no Al Qaeda in Iraq while the sainted Saddam was in power. Even if one ignores the links between the two, CNN is reporting that Al Qaeda is there now.

So how do the Democrats justify turning tail and running?
