BushCo: Doing al Qaeda's press work

Dan Froomkin - Al Qaeda's Best Publicist -
At a South Carolina Air Force base yesterday, Bush mentioned al-Qaeda and bin Laden 118 times in 29 minutes, arguing that the violence unleashed by the U.S. invasion in Iraq would somehow come to America's shores if U.S. troops were to withdraw.
That's mentioning al Qaeda and/or bin Laden 4 times a freakin' minute!

Some more math (well, not really): We weren't being invaded by al Qaeda before we attacked Iraq (okay, once, and if we would have heeded the advice given to us by our own intelligence community, it wouldn't have happened), so, now, if al Qaeda is "going to follow us home" if we withdraw our troops, wasn't that caused by BushCo's rush to war?
