It is now official. Bush sucks at everything. The National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) has described the invasion of Iraq as making us less safe. It states that Iraq has been a distraction from the real war against terror and that we have played into the hands of Bin Laden.
The White House is on the defensive, stating that White "that the reports reflected a selective and distorted interpretation of the study."
I suppose if anyone would know about selective and dissertations of information, it would be the White House. After all, it was selective and distorted information that they used to get us into this war in the first place. But, as we left-wing-pinko-commie-bastards have been saying from the get go, this was is making us less safe. We should have gone after Bin Laden in stead of Hussein. We should have completed the job in Afghanistan and left Iraq for another day.
But instead of worrying about terrorism, Bush decided to finish the job of his daddy. And we will pay the price.

Democratic lawmakers yesterday seized on elements of a new classified intelligence assessment as validation of their long-standing position that the Iraq war has been a distraction from the broader war against terrorists, seeing the new study as an opportunity to undermine President Bush's determined offensive to turn terrorism to political advantage in the midterm elections.
A classified National Intelligence Estimate, completed in April but disclosed in news reports over the weekend, offers the U.S. intelligence community's first formal evaluation of global trends in terrorism since the April 2003 invasion of Iraq. U.S. officials said the report concludes that the Iraq war has fueled the growth of Islamic extremism and terror groups, but White House officials responded that the reports reflected a selective and distorted interpretation of the study.
