President Bush flipflops in Colorado about bin Laden, Tora Bora and Al Queda!

Nothing is his Fault Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall

Our forgetful and out of touch president flips then flops about bin Laden, Tora Bora, and what war he seems to be waging. Employing logical fallacy to avoid answering, rebutting or responding to questions on his poor results.

the Prez is consistent however,
...he avoids all responsibility in remark after remark.

Nothing's his fault.

The president today in Colorado ...

Now my opponent is throwing out the wild claim that he knows where bin Laden was in the fall of 2001, and that our military passed up the chance to get him in Tora Bora. This is an unjustified criticism of our military commanders in the field. Reality = wild claim.

U.S. Concludes Bin Laden Escaped at Tora Bora Fight
Failure to Send Troops in Pursuit Termed Major Error

The Bush administration has concluded that Osama bin Laden was present during the battle for Tora Bora late last year and that failure to commit U.S. ground troops to hunt him was its gravest error in the war against al Qaeda, according to civilian and military officials with first-hand knowledge

Our Christian president could use a little confession.
