Bush rejects the Baker Report

I came upon yoour blog while searching for blogs that seem to invite discussion of foreign and domestic policy issues surrounding the US and Europe's relations with the world of Islam.

Meanwhile, innocent citizens of Iraq and well-meaning American kids are going to get killed every day, thanks to a small group of people who were, literally, "hell-bent" on starting an unjust war.

Good luck with this blog! If you don't mind, it would like to comment frequently.
