Bush doesn't learn; relies on forged letter in today's speech

BooMan says that the letter cited in president's speech is reminiscent of other documents (say, for instance, from Niger) cited in past speeches.
Are you craving more proclamations from the administration based on forged documents (quite possibly) of their own making? Are you having withdrawals from the Niger document fiasco? Never fear. Today the President cited another forged document, a document probably thought up by some half-ass Arabist in some latter day Office of Special Plans. We already know that the myth of Zarqawi is being used to personalize every attack of every civilian target on more than one continent. The myth of Zawahiri's letter to Zarqawi is now being cited as the main justification for staying the course in Iraq. From the President's Veteran's Day speech today:

In his recent letter, Zawahiri writes that al Qaeda views Iraq as, quote, "the place of the greatest battle." The terrorists regard Iraq as the central front in their war against humanity. We must recognize Iraq as the central front in our war against the terrorists.

Third, these militants believe that controlling one country will rally the Muslim masses, enabling them to overthrow all modern governments in the region and establish a radical Islamic empire that spans from Spain to Indonesia. Zawahiri writes that the terrorists, quote, "must not have their mission end with the expulsion of the Americans from Iraq." He goes on to say the jihad requires several incremental goals -- expel the Americans from Iraq, establish an Islamic authority over as much territory as you can to spread its power in Iraq, extend the jihad wave to the secular countries neighboring Iraq. End quote.

See the evidence that this letter is a rank forgery below the fold. [Read on ...]
This is a pattern with this president. He does not learn from his mistakes, and continues to make them over and over and over...
