More incompetence

Remember that deal I mentioned in previous posts about the Bush administration giving out too much information to the press last year over a captured Al Qaeda laptop? The media leak that ended up botching a major Pakistani sting and allowed countless terrorist operatives to slip away?

It looks like that case had a greater impact than any of us realized. As those same Al Qaeda cell operatives who slipped away are being connected to the bombings in London.

Here's Americablog with more details from ABC News. Basically, in an effort to look like they were doing something to fight terrorism, the Bush administration ended up alerting several terrorist cells to exposure, leading to their escape and later to the London attacks.

I can't say it enough. If you lie down with Neocons, you'll get up with terrorists.
