Evan Bayh Slaps Crocker
Posted by Ilan Goldenberg
Bayh asks why should we be focused on Iraq when Al Qaeda Central's safe haven is actually in Pakistan's northwest territories.
Crocker responds that Osama Bin Laden says that Iraq would be a perfect base for Al Qaeda (Of course that doesn't mean that it is or will be, but just that it would make the perfect base).
To which Bayh responds that "we shouldn't be taking our marching orders from Osama Bin Laden," and that perhaps we should consider the fact that Bin Laden would like us to stay there for as long as possible.
