Swatting at flies More on the revisionist history going on in Washington:

Critics who fault Bush for being pre-emptive on Iraq do not hesitate to fault Bush for not being pre-emptive when it came to attacks that were unexpected and unimagined. Some behave as if they believe the president is supposed to be a superhero who can smell threats, including risks that intelligence staffers haven't been able to pinpoint.

I can just imagine the reaction if we had announced that we were going to invade Afghanistan prior to 9/11 in order to overthrow the Taliban. Or announced a version of the Patriot Act. The Dems would have collectively peed in their pants.
