One of the latest tricks being yanked out of the Bush Administration's increasingly threadbare bag is the false argument: "The liberals believe that if we cut-and-run from Iraq the terrorists will then leave us alone." They then proceed to criticise the so-called "liberal position," saying that it is as foolish as the beliefs of those who had wanted to "appease" Hitler prior to WW II. The problem is that liberals have never said or implied such nonsense. Over the last few weeks--when Bush isn't busy trying to get Congress to retroactively "clarify" the Geneva Convention so he can avoid a war crimes trial--he, Cheney and Rumsfeld have all been trying to sell us the "false argument," but fewer and fewer Americans are willing to buy it.
