Dean Esmay notes the arrest of Khalid Sheik Mohammed and observes that leftist claims that the US has forgotten about Al Qaeda in its determination to intervene in Iraq have been exposed as a 'bunch of crap.'
Capturing Al Qaeda is mostly the job of the CIA and the FBI, while Iraq is mostly the Defense and State Departments' job. Just because most pundits can't walk and chew gum at the same time doesn't mean the government can't. Rounding up Al Qaeda is the job of a completely different set of people from those dealing with Iraq.
Good point, but it doesn't make any difference to people who are already incapable of distinguishing the multiple reasons the government is pushing for action in Iraq in the first place.
