Excuse Me?

Now, Scotty is ceasing to be entertaining and starting to piss me off. How arrogant. I am certain bloggers out there will be equally pissed at this statement:
Q The American people want answers to what happened and what went wrong --

Q Maybe they could be focused on more than one thing at the same time.

''the war on terrorism. This is one of the President's highest priorities, and it is a long war that we are engaged in. Iraq is a central part of that.

''And we're going to continue to talk about the nature of the enemy that we face. This is a determined enemy. They are terrorists. They have a clear strategy for seeking to dominate the broader Middle East. The way to defeat them is to engage them where they are and bring them to justice before they can carry out attacks. That's exactly what our men and women in uniform are doing. We are greatly appreciative for their efforts. They're making important progress, but the terrorists will continue to try to ratchet up the violence and do everything they can to stop freedom from taking hold, because the best weapon we have in our arsenal is democracy and freedom.
