War on Terror Update: Al-Qaida Afghan Commander Gets Ticket to Paradise

Abu Laith al-Libi, a top al-Qaida commander in Afghanistan who was blamed for bombing a base while Vice President Cheney was visiting last year, has been killed in Pakistan, according to an Islamic terrorist Web site.

Al-Libi was a key link between the Taliban and al-Qaida and was one of the U.S. government's 12 most-wanted men, with a bounty of $200,000 on his head.

Good riddance.

That's great. Too bad the Taliban is gaining in Afghanistan, and the home defenses are weaker now than ever.

"The U.S. military isn't ready for a catastrophic attack on the country, and National Guard forces don't have the equipment or training they need for the job, according to a report."

"Even fewer Army National Guard units are combat-ready today than were nearly a year ago when the Commission on the National Guard and Reserves determined that 88 percent of the units were not prepared for the fight, the panel says in a new report released Thursday."

But hey, all those troops in Iraq sure is worth it. Who cares if they are exhausted and the suicide rates are through the roof.

Barney is having a hard time with the good news. Digest it slowly Barney, that way your head won't explode in anger.

Anyway, what excellent news. Thanks George W! :)

LoveAmerica, Immigrant:

Barney gave us another DUMB and DISHONEST liberal spin. Liberals are so unhappy about the progress in Iraq and Afghanistan. They cannot stop for one minute to appreciate the success of our troops. They have to always find sth to blame and complain. They always try to clinton and NYT. Berkeley just tried to kick out the marine and the recruiting station. In trying to clinton the news, they forgot to check their logic. Using liberal logic here: since we are not ready to defend the homeland 100%, so we need to withdraw from Iraq so that the terrorists have time to recoup and plot attacks against America homeland. What a Clintonian logic and NYT honesty! The liberal left is totally clintonized.

Barney and his band of useful idiots are so concerned
about the ability of our armed forces that in the heart of liberal land,San Francisco,they have passed two measures:

1.Sending the Marine Corps. a letter saying they are
"uninvited and unwelcome intruders" in the city.

Calling our men and women in uniform "unwelcome intruders" doesn't seem to jive with Barney and his
liberal friends "concern" for our armed forces.

Councilwoman Betty Olds stated:
"The Marines ought to have better sense than to come here."

"By taking a stand against recruitment we are protecting the health and safety of our youth."stated
PhoeBe Sorgen,Member of Peace and Justice Commission.

Wow!!,what support for our troops Barney.

Of course everybody knows that it was liberals like you and Phoebe making your bumper stickers and taking
super intelligent stands like this that defeated the
Nazis,Communist,and Jihadist,not strong leadership by the President and the American Soldier.

2.Code Pink gets a parking space right in front of a
recruiting station every Wednesday without having to apply for a noise permit for six months.

NO sign of favoritism or harassment here at all right

Can't wait to see this city council approve pro-life
demonstrators the right to yell and scream at will right in front of abortion clinics.

Barney and the rest of his liberal friends have no problem calling our Soldiers cold blooded killers,stupid,defacing their monuments,and yelling at the top of their lungs anything they can find negative
about their mission while ignoring the freedom they bring to our nation and other nations around the world.

Barney,nobody believes you and your liberal friends really care about the American Soldier because your hateful and pathetic actions towards them now and
during Vietnam show your true colors.
