GWB keeps using the point that terrorists are "willing to kill innocent women and children to achieve their objectives" as part of the justification for our continuing efforts in Iraq (heard him say it at least twice in this morning's press conference). Of course in chasing down terrorists, we have killed many times over the number of 9/11 victims, in terms of Iraqi and Afghan civilians. Now, true there's a big difference because we are (theoretically) not specifically targeting the innocent. However, even if the level of innocent casualties we've inflicted were somehow justified, I think that the "willing to kill innocent women and children" arm of the administration's anti-terrorism argument is a tad hypocritical and glosses over the innocent blood that is absolutely on our hands. It seems so obvious - why doesn't the press ever challenge him on this?
