  1. The white house only worries about something if they think it will cost republicans votes.
    So as long as the republican voters do not blame them for losing the war on terror there is no reaons for them to change policy.

  2. I heard that "evidence free zone" slam from HRC more than a year ago. Probably wasn't original with her then either.
