Yesterday, in the Washington Post, E.J. Dionne Jr. relayed this little tidbit:

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Fran Townsend, the president's homeland security adviser, said that the war in Iraq attracts terrorists "where we have a fighting military and a coalition that can take them on and not have the sort of civilian casualties that you saw in London."

Jesus. OK, I know they are just Ay-rabs, but isn't it depressing when senior White House staff can completely ignore the fact that, at a conservative estimate, tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians have been killed in the last two years?
