Posted by special request of the boss, who’s getting e-mails from readers complaining that Bush’s speech was “lame.” As I told her: it’s Bush.

Not a total loss, though.

Here’s something to wash it down. Most of you have seen it before, but some might not have. I wonder, how many of the suspects know who this guy is? Or know him personally?

Update: Re: the second video, the Counterterrorism Blog offers its greatest hits on Britain’s homegrown jihad.

Update: Clockwork:

U.S. Muslim groups criticized President George W. Bush on Thursday for calling a foiled plot to blow up airplanes part of a “war with Islamic fascists,” saying the term could inflame anti-Muslim tensions…

“We believe this is an ill-advised term and we believe that it is counter-productive to associate Islam or Muslims with fascism,” said Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations advocacy group.

“We ought to take advantage of these incidents to make sure that we do not start a religious war against Islam and Muslims,” he told a news conference in Washington.

“We urge him (Bush) and we urge other public officials to restrain themselves.”

Do a word search at Anti-CAIR on “Nihad Awad.” See for yourself what he means by “restraint.”

Question to the audience: Does Bush wait until tomorrow to apologize or does he do it tonight?

And does he do it from the White House, or from a mosque?
