WASHINGTON — Al Qaeda's Internet communications system has suddenly gone dark to American intelligence after the leak of Osama bin Laden's September 11 speech inadvertently disclosed the fact that we had penetrated the enemy's system.
And these are the guys who have been responsible for our collective security for nearly seven years. It's time to begin counting down the seconds until someone, anyone, else holds the office of POTUS.
I don't hold with the notion that President Bush is a stupid man. He's clearly not. There does seem to be a growing body of evidence that intelligence is not a particularly important criterion in Administration hiring practices.
