A quick question
In his letter of resignation, John Ashcroft says, "The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved." Leaving aside the obvious fact that Ashcroft has never been a member of the reality based community, can he really be saying what this looks like he's saying: The war on terror is over and we won? Wasn't one of their main arguments for returning Ashcroft's boss to the White House that it would be a disaster to change Commanders in Chief in mid war? Didn't Cheney tell us that only Bush could keep our children safe for the next four years? Now, a mere week after the election, in a letter written on election day, Ashcroft tells us that the war is over and we're all safe. We was robbed!
