That didn't take long


Derrick Z. Jackson, one of the the Boston Globe's stable of lefties, is taking the opportunity of the London bombings to attack America. Of course. Everything bad is the result of George W. Bush.

Yet every invoking of the innocents also reminds us of our despicable, cowardly killing of innocent Iraqi civilians.

Or perhaps you forgot about them. That was by design. We have rightfully mourned the loss of nearly 3,000 people on 9/11. We have begun mourning the loss of about 40 people in London. We have mourned the loss of 1,751 US soldiers, who, bless them, were following orders of their commander in chief. But to this day, there has been no major acknowledgement, let alone apology, by Bush or Blair for the massive amounts of carnage we created in a war waged over what turned out to be a lie, the nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.

It's getting older and smellier by the day, Derrick.
