RJ Eskow: DARK MILESTONE: More Americans Have Now Died In Iraq Than Died On 9/11 - Yahoo! News:
"Today President Bush and his fellow Republicans made another public spectacle out of 9/11, the anniversary of the gravest executive blunder in American history. It's been more than five years since President Bush told the
CIA officer trying to warn him about the upcoming attacks that 'you've covered your ass now,' and then went off to enjoy his vacation day.
'War is a cowardly escape from the problems of peace,' said Thomas Mann. The real struggle we face is preventing terrorism. The GOP's escapist distraction in Iraq has proven deadlier than the real business at hand."
