There is no War on Terror

I missed the democrat press conference debate Thursday night. And, to read the reviews, it was pretty much a non-event.

So, it came as a surprise to me to learn that there was some significant news that didn’t make the MSM after all. I would have missed it completely had it not been posted over at Free Republic. From Ben Smith’s blog at…….

John Edwards doesn’t believe there’s a “global war on terror,” at least not in the simple-show-of-hands sense.

head.jpgThis is something a lot of Democrats say privately — and something mainstream pols everywhere else in the world say publicly — but it contests a Bush administration premise in a way very few American politicians have been comfortable in the last five and a half years.

His stance — though it doesn’t seem to have been all that deliberate — matches the recent comments of a prominent British politician. It’s the most direct challenge to the Bush administration’s whole worldview that I can recall from a leading Democrat.

Edwards aide David Ginsberg confirmed that the former North Carolina senator had not raised his hand in response to Brian Williams’ question,”Do you believe there is such a thing as a global war on terror?”

Now I know why Breck Girl™ needs 400 dollar hair cuts. It’s to get all the poopy out of his hair from having it shoved all the way up his azz.
