Oops,wrong planet

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH (in his January 2007 Stateof the Union stand-up comedy monologue): "From the start, America and our allies have protected our people by staying on the offense. The enemy knows that the days of comfortable sanctuary, easy movement, steady financing and free-flowing communications are long over. The terrorist’s life since 9/11 has never been the same."

Reality check: As the fourth anniversary of the Iraq invasion approaches, a new study by Mother Jones magazine has found that the number of fatal terrorist attacks has increased by over 600 percent since the U.S. invasion.

The study, “The Iraq Effect: The War in Iraq and its Impact on the War on Terrorism,” is co-authored by Paul Cruickshank, Fellow at New York University Law School’s Center on Law and Security.

"Oh, well."
