"Some in Washington..."

CNN has the following snippet in detailing a speech by Vice President Cheney today:
Cheney also criticized "some in Washington" who he asserted are "yielding to the temptation to downplay the threat" from al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

"That mind-set is dangerous," he said.
Of course not being your run of the mill kneejerk koolaid drinking, Fox watching neo con I was a bit bemused by this strawman argument so deftly employed by the V.P. "Who are these idiots in Washington?!" was actually my initial reaction.

Then I realized these idiots must be the same group who thought it would be a good idea to sell our ports to Taliban allies. Maybe the morons who have overseen an explosion in the ranks of Al Qaeda. (You are probably wondering to yourself 'hmmmm... wherever could frik be leading this post?) The people who allowed Osama to escape from Tora Bora. Maybe he's talking about the brain dead sycophants who attacked Iraq when there was no connection with Saddam and 9/11, and set up a training ground for our enemy to refine their terrorist tactics. Lets face it, the camps in Afghanistan were like grade school for would be terrorists, but Iraq is where they go to get their masters degrees.

The administration of George Bush and Dick Cheney has been a tremendous boon to the enemy in the war on terror, and for them to set up their little straw men is obtuse and disingenuous.

But for the life of me, I can not think of any Democrat proclaiming that the threat from Al Qaeda should be discounted. If anything it is the actions taken by this administration that should set off the clarion alarm bells regarding the threat of terrorism.
