The Fundamental Problem With The GOP Terrorist Solution

It strikes me that the President hinted, but didn't realize he was doing so, at the real problem with the GOP Terrorist Solution: That the W, Rove and Co has forgotten to address the very issues that cause would-be-terrorists to hate us.

You see, it doesn't matter how many terrorists are incarcerated in how ever many secret prisons the president is willing to admit to, like the wack-a-mole game at your local carnival, more pop up to take their place.

Even the President agrees with me:
As we prosecute suspected terrorist leaders and operatives who have now been transferred to Guantanamo, we'll continue searching for those who have stepped forward to take their places
Sure, you could blame activist judges for tying your hands in the prosecute of said detainees, but that doesn't address the fundamental roots of terrorism, now does it?
Some may ask: Why are you acknowledging this program now? There are two reasons why I'm making these limited disclosures today. First, we have largely completed our questioning of the men -- and to start the process for bringing them to trial, we must bring them into the open. Second, the Supreme Court's recent decision has impaired our ability to prosecute terrorists through military commissions, and has put in question the future of the CIA program.
Or perhaps, your actions may actually violate the law, which in turn causes more people to turn toward the extreme methods of expressing their anger over the secret incarceration of their family members?

Never let it be said that George doesn't take every available opportunity to weaken and impugn the other two branches of government.
