    Interesting interview with George in Stars and Stripes, will not editorialize as somethings don't need to be.

    ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE — President Bush has met hundreds of families of fallen soldiers, but he has yet to attend a servicemember’s funeral, he said Tuesday.

    “Because which funeral do you go to? In my judgment, I think if I go to one I should go to all. How do you honor one person but not another?†he said......

    Bush was asked if he was planning any special benefits for U.S. troops who had served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said he had already worked to increase military benefits but he had nothing specific in mind for troops who had deployed many times.

    “I will work with Congress if people bring up good ideas,†he said

    The easiest solution would be not to let soldiers die, thus eliminating a need for these funerals and getting Bush out of his dilemma.

    We can bring them home, disarm them and let Al Qaeda kill us all.

    So we tore iraq up to find no wmd's and created afghanistan (circa 1990)
    and now bill oreilly agrees that saddam had iraq under controll without al qeada running around blowing sh-- up, brilliant!!!!!!

    I really don't care for O'reilly but what he is saying to do is for 3 months, not 20+ years like Saddam, do you or mediamatters have the ability to put statements in to context, or not?

    On the other hand, Al Qaeda is killing us almost every day in Iraq, using Iraq to gain recruits, and developing more sophisticated methods with which to attack us, because Iraq is a great training ground for them. The evidence so far is that since terrorists killed 3000 people in NYC, they've killed 2500 Americans in Iraq. From their perspective, they're doing a lot better under Bush than they did under any of his predecessors.
