The liberal website Moveon.org unleashed a flurry of coordinated roadside bomb attacks in the al-Anbar Province of Iraq, killing 17 United States soldiers and wounding five others.
“We hate the soldiers, and freedom, and the American way of life,” a statement released by Moveon.org said. “We will do all we can to defeat the evil forces of the occupier, the United States. Praise be to Allah.”
When asked about the attacks, President Bush said, “Moveon.org is a menace, a dangerous threat to freedom. They are closely linked with Al Qaeda, and we have new intelligence that suggests they sought to obtain uranium from Niger.”
