Another must read. It's not a new story, but given recent events, it's worth remembering that on three separate occasions, the Pentagon drew up strike plans to take out Abu Musab Zarqawi and his organization, each time based on legitimate and distinct reasons, and each time the White House nixed the plan because having Zarqawi alive and active in northern Iraq (outside Saddam's zone of control, I might add) bolstered their case for war.

Just a little something to remember when you hear somebody peddling the "Republicans are the only party that can be trusted when it comes to national security" line of bullshit. If that's taking national security seriously, then, please, send in the clowns!
