Military officials insist their case for attacking ZarqawiÂs operation was airtight, but the administration feared destroying the terrorist camp in Iraq could undercut its case for war against Saddam.
The United States did attack the camp at Kirma at the beginning of the war, but it was too late Â Zarqawi and many of his followers were gone. ÂHereÂs a case where they waited, they waited too long and now weÂre suffering as a result inside Iraq,Â Cressey added.
And despite the Bush administrationÂs tough talk about hitting the terrorists before they strike, ZarqawiÂs killing streak continues today.
Now, they're after Internet pills. Yes, there are some addiction issues (but, then, there always are). But why cannot the state treat citizens and doctors as grown-ups? What business is it of the government to decide whether someone cannot use a prescription medication for pleasure or relief if she decides it's something she wants to do and a doctor is prepared to prescribe it? Ditto steroids. Frankly, the way in which the internet has broken down some of our puritanical attitudes toward the pharmaceutical revolution has been a great step forward for human freedom and medical or recreational choice. I guess the possibility that someone out there may be experiencing actual pleasure is enough to send the government into a full-scale panic. We're used to the insane war on illegal drugs. Now they want a war on the legal ones as well. Can't Rush Limbaugh protest this incursion of over-weening government? Oh, wait ...
