I'm not accusing Tom Tommorrow of stealing my idea or anything, but damn: Here is his cartoon for this week (April 20th):

And here is an excerpt from my blog post from April 13th:

So for Bush to take action against Bin Laden, he needed a time and place of attack? Using this logic, unless the intelligence memo he received said Bin Laden determined to strike the WTC on September 11, 2001 at 8:45 a.m, he wouldn't have taken action? Even if it did, would he still not have taken action because he didn't know if 8:45 a.m. was Eastern Standard Time or the Central Time used in Texas?

And at what time and place did Bush's intelligence indicate that Saddam Hussein would strike the United States with WMDs?

Ok, ok, I know, the Bushies say that everything changed after September 11th, and that after that date, it became clear that a pre-emptive foreign policy was needed.

Change they did! We went from the early Bush approach, needing a time and date of a future attack before you are willing to take any action at all, to the late Bush approach, launching attacks against countries when you have no evidence that they are planning to attack you at any time or date.

I give you credit, Tom for independently having the same train of thought that I did. Of course, if you visited GoBacktoTexas.com, you would have done so one week earlier. [This is the point where the viewing public hastily puts a link to GoBacktoTexas.com on their websites/blogs.]
