US Troops in Iraq Are Sitting Ducks, by Justin Raimondo: "Those connections between Iraq and Al Qaeda we heard so much about in the period leading up to the invasion turned out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Osama bin Laden surely didn't have an Iraqi presence before the war, but he sure as heck does now.

"In this ironic sense, then, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz was perfectly correct the other day when he averred that 'Iraq is the central battle in the war on terror.' Seen from Osama bin Laden's perspective, it is. What Wolfowitz neglected to mention, however, is that the terrorists have gained a foothold in Iraq thanks to the U.S. "
