Somewhere, probably in Iraq, Saddam Hussein is gloating. He can only be gratified by the feeding frenzy of recriminations, second-guessing and political power-plays that are currently assailing his nemeses: President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The hysteria surrounding charges that faulty British intelligence about one aspect of Saddam's nuclear weapons program and a Bush 2003 State of the Union allusion to it may even be emboldening Saddam to believe the unimaginable: He might yet survive (physically and perhaps politically) the current pair of U.S. and U.K. leaders, just as he did their predecessors in the wake of Operation Desert Storm.

Scurrilous attacks on Mr. Bush's case for war may gratify his partisan foes even as they make Saddam's day. But they are highly unlikely to make Iraq more stable or secure — or the world a safer place.

As if the Dims care.

John Podhoretz has a nice article in the NYP this AM on this topic, but with a hopeful spin: the dems will beat this dead horse so much that they will negate any effect it might have on Election 2004.

Hey, we all need to find the silver lining, right?

I have total confidence in Dean and Kerry's political tin ears. Besides, they have to keep it up in order to maintain polling numbers with the far-left kooks.

Unfortunately, the current fandango cannot be written off as merely a domestic political cat fight — tawdry but the sort of thing to be expected in the course of an election season. It would be an international setback of the worst kind if it also has the effect of stiffening resistance toward the U.S.-led interim authority in Iraq; inviting further attacks on our military personnel; increasing the reluctance of allies to participate in Iraq's rebuilding; and intensifying efforts to sabotage progress being made in rebuilding a functioning Iraqi society and economy.

Translation: Treason, with a capital T.
