In terms of protecting the American people in the Global War on Terror, George W. Bush is pitching a no-hitter. We hear that our global enemy, al-Qaeda, has effectively been defeated and there is ample news that the war in Iraq is a smashing victory.

From the Washington Post.

Less than a year after his agency warned of new threats from a resurgent al-Qaeda, CIA Director Michael V. Hayden now portrays the terrorist movement as essentially defeated in Iraq and Saudi Arabia and on the defensive throughout much of the rest of the world, including in its presumed haven along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

In a strikingly upbeat assessment, the CIA chief cited major gains against al-Qaeda’s allies in the Middle East and an increasingly successful campaign to destabilize the group’s core leadership.

While cautioning that al-Qaeda remains a serious threat, Hayden said Osama bin Laden is losing the battle for hearts and minds in the Islamic world and has largely forfeited his ability to exploit the Iraq war to recruit adherents.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki this week noted tremendous progress in Iraq.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Friday that the country’s economic and security progress shows reconciliation between the nation’s feuding factions is almost completed.

“I’m not saying that Iraq is paradise; absolutely not,” al-Maliki told reporters in Stockholm. “There are great challenges. But I still would like to say that violent acts have decreased by 80 percent in Iraq.”

His Shiite-dominated government is under pressure to show progress in reconciliation among the country’s Sunni Arabs, Shiites and Kurds. Iraq’s Sunni Arab minority has long felt it is being sidelined by the majority Shiites and the Kurds.

“We have come nearly to the end of the long process,” al-Maliki said through an interpreter at a joint news conference with Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. “It doesn’t mean that everyone gets an equal piece of the pie, but it means that one must show a commitment for a unified, democratic Iraq.”

And Nancy Pelosi, continuing to prove that there is something very wrong with San Francisco, says that this success in Iraq is not due to the blood and sacrifice of our Armed Forces, not due to the policies of George W. Bush, nor even due to the brilliant surge plan of General David Petraeus. In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, she credits . . . Iran.

Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal. And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.

The Speaker of the House is so infected with Bush Derangement Syndrome that she has to credit America’s enemy with our victory in Iraq, rather than give Bush or the troops the credit. Iran sends weapons into Iraq and murders our troops and she credits them with the victory. She is utterly unfit to lead and should be removed from her post. She is giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies, and the last time I checked, that’s called treason.
