Rice in Iraq: "War came to us" Yeah, Riiiiiiiiiiiight

Well the Mistress of Mendacity, does it again. Thanks SteveNS . On how many freaking levels this is wrong, I am not going to bother to calculate, but I will take a moment to remind everyone of the conventional 9-11 story, and that is that a bunch of Saudi terrorists with no proven connection to Saddam Hussein were responsible for the attacks on the US that day. So lets take a look at the wonderfull feelgood Photo-Op that was Condi's visit to Iraq.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made an unannounced trip to Iraq on Sunday, urging patience for the country's fragile new government and offering encouragement to American troops.

Rice, making her first visit to Iraq as secretary of state, spoke to hundreds of U.S. troops and diplomats in Baghdad.

"I want you to keep focused on what you are doing here," Rice told the diplomats and troops who gathered in one of Saddam Hussein's former palaces. "This war came to us, not the other way around."

"The United States, along with the rest of the free world, believed somehow for a number of years that people in this region didn't care about freedom," she said. "We cared about stability. And what we got was neither. We got a malignancy that was growing that came to haunt us on the fine September day" in 2001.

A couple of things. First what region are you referring to exacly, IsRabiStan, a region bordered by china in the east, Russia to the north, the Indian Ocean to the south and the Mediterranean Sea to the west, or are you just referring to RabPersiaStan, the region that for some reason sits on top of the oil that rightfully belongs to Team America™? Secondly the way that "...fine September day" rolls off fyour tongue, makes me wonder if you do not consider yourself to have benefitted from the horrible events of that day.

And was not your previous job to see to it that such events did not happen at all, and instead of reprimand, you enjoy a promotion. How do I get into your line of work, how do I get on the fast track of spectacular Hacktacularity, whenever will the Peter Principle come to my assistance?
