    //Once Again, Bush Plays the Al-Qaida Card // (Washn)
    By Dana Milbank


    WASHINGTON _ President Bush is at odds with the American public and a restive congressional majority over the Iraq war, and even some Republicans talk about imposing new requirements that could trigger a troop withdrawal.

    It's time to play the Qaida card.

    In a speech about Iraq Wednesday morning at the Willard Hotel, the president mentioned Osama bin Laden's group -- 27 times. "For America, the decision we face in Iraq is not whether we ought to take sides in a civil war, it's whether we stay in the fight against the same international terrorist network that attacked us on 9/11," Bush told a group of construction contractors.

    The White House is well aware that it has had some trouble getting out a coherent message on Iraq. In his speech to the contractors, Bush delivered a less than ringing endorsement of the First Amendment, calling freedom of the press "just something that we've all got to live with."

    Bush is the new Ceasar, or Hitler.
    He may very well bring down the republic / empire.

    This is right in line with his previous comment, "The Constitution is just a goddam piece of paper". Sometimes when we hear that our troops are fighting for our freedom, it is difficult to reconcile this with the seeming disregard for the constitution.
