From the joint Bush-Maliki press conference today in Amman:
PRESIDENT BUSH: ... Part of the plan in Baghdad was to prevent -- prevent killers from taking innocent life.
Q Including sectarian violence?
PRESIDENT BUSH: Well that's -- killers taking innocent life is, in some cases, sectarian. I happen to view it as criminal, as well as sectarian. I think any time you murder somebody, you're a criminal. And I believe a just society and a society of -- that holds people to account and believes in rule of law protects innocent people from murderers, no matter what their political party is.
Good heavens, it almost sounds as if he's saying that terrorism is a law-enforcement matter.
I thought the only people who said anything like that were "Kumbaya"-singing hippie appeasers like John Kerry.
