Dana had an excellent story yesterday at TAP that I meant to write about but didn't get time for. She covered an event where Newt Gingrich presented his own version of events:
Gingrich made his case through a "thought experiment" of an "alternate history" of the past six years in which, with unlikely efficiency and competence, the entire United States government retooled itself after Sept. 11, 2001 for a military, intelligence, and diplomatic war against Muslim terrorism.
Right, if only we would have had a conservative president and Congress in the years following 9/11 to steer us in the right direction. Oh wait. We did.
