Enlistment program

Len Brackett

I am describing a cartoon. Picture this: A blood-spattered room with a naked Iraqi cowering in front of a threatening dog and a leering prison guard in the background. Through the window one can see a burning mosque. In the foreground, Osama bin Laden, staring and pointing straight into the reader’s eyes, is saying, “I want you!”

The caption says, “Thank you, George, for doing such a great job fighting terrorism and making sure we’re safe from these people who have no regard for civil rights and who “hate us because we are free.”

Bin Laden couldn’t have found a better enlistment program than what our president handed him on a silver platter. Bush is not only a liar, he’s incompetent as well.
