They Won't Follow Us Home (2)

Jeff Greenfield reported recently for CBS News on President Bush's disingenuous and fear-mongering threat that we are fighting in Iraq so that we won't have to fight them here in America.

James Carafano of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank told Mr Greenfield:

The President is using a primitive, inarticulate argument that leaves him open to criticism and caricature.
Mr. Greenfield also points out that the reasons given for the Iraq war have come a long long way from the pre-invasion claims of weapons of mass destruction and the good that the invasion would do for the region and the world. As Mr. Greenfield says "the argument now seems to be based on the dreadful things that would happen if America leaves."

Mr. Bush cannot come up with any positive results due to American soldiers remaining in Iraq, yet another of the reasons on the ever growing list of arguments for putting an end to this disasterous war.

Watch Mr. Greenfield's report.

Dan Froomkin highlighted this story last Friday.
