Richard Clarke, smart guy that he is, noted that we are truly no safer now than before Zarqawi was killed. He's right, of course. We are no safer now, we were no safer when Uday and Qusay got greased, we were no safer when we got Sadaam. But what's so interesting is that over at the Free Republic, they greeted Clarke's statement with comments like this:
"We heard this same rap when Saddam Hussein was captured....."
So . . . yeah, we did hear the same rap. Because it's true. But why do the Freepers bring this up as evidence of something?
Obviously, they feel something we don't.
