We all remember how much President Bush was laughing on 9/12
Mr. Bush displays his inability to grasp the irony of his statements in addressing his War on Terror™, collateral damage, and dead Iraqi children, as indicated by remarks taken from "G-8 Meeting's Focus Shifts to Terrorism", the New York Times, July 7, 2005:
"The contrast couldn't be clearer between the intentions and the hearts of those of us who care deeply about human rights and human liberty, and those who kill, those who have got such evil in their hearts that they will take the lives of innocent folks," Mr. Bush said in remarks to reporters. "The war on terror goes on."This Morning (after less than 24 hours had passed):
"Aw, Ben, 'Mind the Gap', huh? That is funny...but don't tell my boy Tony over there, OK? We all need to appear to be publicly grieving so as to justify our continued actions."

From Richard W. Stevenson's "G-8 Meeting's Focus Shifts to Terrorism", published hours after the subway bombings in London, comes this egregious renewal of the Bush adminsitration's age-old canard:
And it seemed perhaps fitting that the American and British leaders were together at the moment when Britain confronted its version of the 9/11 attacks that transformed the national security policy of the United States and ultimately led them to send their militaries together into Iraq.
