TEL AVIV, Israel — The war in Iraq has not damaged international terror groups but instead distracted the United States from confronting other hotbeds of Islamic militancy and actually “created momentum” for many terrorists, a top Israeli security think tank said in a report released yesterday.

President Bush has called the war in Iraq an integral part of the war on terrorism, but the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University said that instead of striking a blow against Islamic extremists, the Iraq war “has created momentum for many terrorist elements, but chiefly al-Qaida and its affiliates.”

Yeah, great job fighting the “War on Terra”, Mr. President. For a War President, you’re pretty damn incompetent. Time for you to get out of office. At least have the courtesy, like Nixon, to resign.
