Wrong band

I'm thinking we mean "asleep at the switch," but I've been wrong before. But enough about that. What's the big story here, Fair 'n' Balanced Network?

The Obama administration's apparent miscalculation of the threat posed by Al Qaeda-aligned militants in Iraq drew severe criticism Thursday from top Republican lawmakers, who accused President Obama and his national security team of "taking a nap," warning "the next 9/11 is in the making."

... The administration once again appears to have been caught off guard by an explosion of violence in a country U.S. forces helped liberate from a dictator.

Maybe somebody should remind Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., that the first 9/11 didn't come from Iraq. And that if we wanted a stable, secular Iraqi autocracy that was really good at killing insurgents (and large numbers of other people who looked at it crossways) while acting as a regional counterweight to Iran, maybe we shouldn't have broken the one that was already there.

The sunshine realists were out in force during the bumbling in Ukraine. Wonder how quickly they'll scurry for cover on this one.
