Yeah, that headline deserved two exclamation points. These people are simply freaking unbelievable--literally:
Romney foreign policy adviser Walid Phares told Canadian CTV last week:
[E]liminating Osama Bin Laden was part of the war withal [sic] Qaeda and an act of justice. But reality is that al Qaeda after Bin Laden’s killing is stronger everywhere it has a presence. From Yemen to Somalia, to the Sahel, as wel [sic] as in Pakistan and Afghanistan, al Qaeda has more militants, more battlefields and a new generation of commanders. Killing Bin Laden was one single operation in a war that is raging and growing.
Now that you've heard from him, here's the truth:
Data from the National Counterterrorism Center’s Worldwide Incidents Tracking System shows that, in the past year alone, there has been: a 16 percent drop in successful attacks by the al Qaeda network; a 65 percent drop in successful attacks by the al Qaeda network outside Africa; and a 35 percent drop in casualties caused by al Qaeda. Twenty-two al Qaeda network senior-level operatives and leaders have been captured or killed since May 2011. [Emphasis added]
You just watch, folks--Romney and His Flying Monkeys (TM) will be rolling this BS line out over and over this year. They'll try to claim that President Obama has let our enemies grow stronger--the EXACT OPPOSITE of the truth. It's what the Romney people do, all of them, as naturally as breathing:
Lie. Just like Willard, the King of Lies, himself.
