Gen. Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker admit that US war on terror is misdirected

Joe Biden asked Amb. Crocker where it would be better for American national security interests to eliminate Al Qaeda in Iraq or Al Qaeda along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. Crocker had to answer the question:
Crocker: I would therefore pick Al Qaeda on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

So, the Ambassdor to Iraq just admitted that Iraq is not the central front in the war on terror. This was seconded by Gen. Petraeus when asked about where Al Qaeda's primary base of operations are.
Sen. Feingold: You would agree that their greater safe haven and greater operability is in Pakistan/Afghanistan rather than in Iraq, correct?

Gen. Petraeus: I believe that is so.

Calling all wingnuts and Bush ass kissers... please answer this question:

What level of incompetence can be justified so as to allow terrorist safe havens in Afghanistan, the country from which the 9/11 attacks were launched, such that Al Qaeda is even stronger today than they were 7 years ago?

We spend nearly a $ half billion a day in Iraq while our economy suffers, our military is weakened, our major infrastructure collapses, and Al Qaeda gets stronger. Now the neo-cons want to start another war with Iran.

Republican Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH) nailed it. He said because of the Iraq war, “we’re at a point where we’re really strained and stressed out. I hate to agree with Sen. Feingold, but I think Osama bin Laden is sitting back right now looking at this thing [and saying] in effect, ‘We’re kinda bankrupting this country.’

Bingo. The chimp has waged a poorly executed, ineffective, incredibly expensive, ill advised, misdirected, and most of all ... a very unintelligent war. 12 US soldiers have died in Iraq since Sunday.

Speaking of unintelligent, McCain again demonstrates he's clueless about Iraq and Al Qaeda. Speaking of Al Qaeda, McCain said today:
MCCAIN: [Al Qaeda is] certainly not an obscure sect of the Shi’ites overall?


MCCAIN: Or Sunnis or anybody else.

Wrong again idiot. Al Qaeda has nothing to do with Shi'ites and IS in fact an obscure sect of Sunnis.

Yet another story on McCain's temperament emerges. He apparently called his wife a "cunt" and a "trollop" in public.
