Mythical Victories In The Mythical War

David Swanson dissects the so-called president's claims of success in the so-called war against so-called terror, and gives the chimperor a zero!
President Bush claimed in his State of the Union speech to have prevented four terrorist plots. Phew! It's a good thing to know that we tossed out our Bill of Rights for some actual REASON – I mean other than turning Iraq into a training ground for terrorism.

Except that we didn't.
Swanson makes a convincing case that all four of the anti-terror "successes" claimed by the so-called president were, in his word, "fictional". It's a good read. Hint, hint!

Rashid Rauf and the Liquid Bombers came in at number 3.
