Just One Point

I’ll leave the complete analysis of Thomas Friedman’s latest piece in the New York Times for a later moment, but there’s one point that practically begs my immediate repudiation…

Yet, since Sept. 11, the Bush-Cheney team has not lifted a finger to make us, or the Arab-Islamic world, less dependent on oil.

Um, it was called ANWR. You have Tom Daschle and the Sierra Club to blame for killing that, not the Bush Administration.

The rest of the piece is actually fairly good, and makes some good points, but the dig against the Bush Administration just doesn’t wash.
