Bush Believes Those Who Protest Iraq War Don't Want U.S. to Win 'War on Terror,' Spokesman Says

NEW YORK Meeting briefly with reporters Monday aboard Air Force One, Trent Duffy, a White House spokesman subbing for Scott McClellan, said that President Bush believes that those who want the U.S. to begin to change course in Iraq do not want America to win the overall "war on terror."

Duffy spoke on a day when a surprisingly large antiwar protest met the president during his stay in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he addressed a Veterans of Foreign Wars convention.

Speaking to reporters, Duffy said that Bush "can understand that people don't share his view that we must win the war on terror, and we cannot retreat and cut and run from terrorists, but he just has a different view. He believes it would be a fundamental mistake right now for us to cut and run in the face of terrorism, because if we've learned anything, especially from the 9/11 Commission Report, it is that to continue to retreat after the Cole, after Beirut and Somalia is to only empower terrorists and to give them more recruiting tools as they try to identify ways to harm Americans.

Aaah yes, still clinging to the idea that Iraq and the war on terror are synonymous. Afganistan should not be secondary to Iraq. Tracking terrorist trying to do bad shit in America and elsewhere, whould not be second. Iraq has done nothing but made the "War on Terror" more difficult, created more enemies, and bred terrorists. Lots of them. Until this president and his handlers/staff/advisors face their errors openly, and actively rectify them, we are fucked and will be attacked. It's great that the President wants to win the war on terror, but then why is he still standing by a failed policy? Change something! Change the team formation. Change a few players. Change a lot of the players. You're down by a few with only a few minutes left in the game. Make a fucking change....
