Apples, Oranges, Who Cares?

Newsweek (07.26.06), via JoshMarshall:
"The president has used Al Qaeda to gin up the threat from Iraq, just as he is now conflating Hizbullah and Hamas with Al Qaeda as 'terrorists' of the same ilk. Actually these groups had little connection to one another — or at least they didn't until America decided to make itself their common enemy." How Bush Makes Enemies
"Al Qaeda was always, in truth, the only 'terrorist group of global reach' in the world—which is how Bush accurately defined things back in that long-ago fall of 2001. Both Hizbullah and Hamas had publicly disavowed any interest in backing Osama bin Laden's goals." "Al Qaeda was Sunni, Hizbullah is Shiite. Even within the Muslim world these groups had scant support, although Hamas and Hizbullah had a lot more than Al Qaeda did because they were providing social services in Lebanon and Gaza." And the fucktards in this Administration can't tell the difference. Nice.
