Are we really any safer today, after all the “hard work” of the Bush Admin? Is the world a better place after invading Iraq, where there were no WMD or terrorists before 9/11?

Take a look these pro-surge propaganda ads by former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer’s pro-Iraq war outfit Freedom’s Watch (complete with an eagle on its front web page), they conflate Iraq with terrorism and 9/11 with a “They attacked us before — and they will attack us again if we leave Iraq” message. Ads like this are running here in NC.

I took these grainy pictures of the WTC with my low-tech Palmpix camera on July 11, 2001, while on a business trip. They weren’t the best quality and I almost deleted them at the time. I actually retrieved them from the very full trash folder on my hard drive that morning on 9/11  after hearing what happened.
