Wonder if This'll Do It

In sifting through all the criticism of the president and the war on terror (both the legitimate and the preposterous), I always find myself waiting for the undropped shoe - to hear the 'Impeach Bush' gang once actually denounce Al Queda. I mean, go on hating Bush; I don't care, but I keep waiting for whoever the spokesperson du jour is to actually say "you know, Al-Queda are a bunch of loonies who would love to kill as many infidels as possible."

Well, maybe this will bring a few Hollywood clowns around:
Security surrounding the Dalai Lama has been tightened after reports of an attempt by the al-Qa'ida-linked terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Toiba to assassinate the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader. A three-tier security ring has been thrown around the 72-year-old Buddhist head, who lives at Dharamsala, in the Himalayan foothills, Indian police spokesman Prem Lal said.

In a recent document, Osama bin Laden denounced "pagan Buddhism" as part of his general attack on anything not Islamic.
C'mon, what's the deal? I keep hearing that Al-Queda only hates W, Republicans and other decadent Westerners. Where is Brad Pitt, fer cryin' out loud?
