Inflating al-Qaida in Iraq

I know I mentioned it at the time of his speech, but this piece I did last week for I think does it in a more lengthy and systematic way. Whether out of desperation or denial, President Bush made a fairly sustained attempt week before last to sell the idea that al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI) was the major foe, and that if we withdrew prematurely (an almost infinitely elastic concept apparently) we would be turning the country over to a group affiliated with the people who perpetrated the 9/11 terrorist acts (and just happen to be reconstituting themselves along the Pakistan-Afghan border). For any number of reasons, many having to do with the fact that AQI constitutes maybe 5 percent of the insurgent fighters in Iraq and would no doubt be crushed rather ruthlessly if the U.S. left, this is balderdash. But read the whole thing.
