"The Republican leadership priority is to have our troops hunt down, kill or capture terrorists before they try to attack us again at home," said Ron Bonjean, spokesman for House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Illinois.
I guess that explains why 1700 soldiers have died and Bin Laden (remember him? The fellow that brought down the World Trade Center?) is still free.
Follow up: I sent the following to Speaker Hastert
Recently a fellow in your office, Ron Bonjean, said the following: The Republican leadership priority is to have our troops hunt down, kill or capture terrorists before they try to attack us again at home.
I was wondering if perhaps the Republican leadership would amend this priority to include terrorists who have already attacked us at home. It has been almost 4 years and Osama Bin Laden is still free. And unless you have some intellegence report that says he's hiding in Iraq, our troops are in the wrong place.
And while you're at it, perhaps you could do something to catch the guy who was sending out anthrax. I know he's another terrorist who's already struck, but just for fun, why not bring him to justice?
