U.S. Troops = Al Qaida Bait?

Um, and this is a GOOD thing?

That's what Dick Morris seems to think. From Think Progress:

Last night on Hannity and Colmes, right-wing pundit Dick Morris also claimed that we need to keep U.S. troops in Iraq so that terrorists don’t come to the United States. But he argued that we need to put “Americans right within their [terrorists’] arms’ reach” so that they have the opportunity to “kill Americans” there. He added that therefore, “they don’t have to come to Wall Street to kill Americans. They don’t have to knock down the Trade Center. They can do it around the corner, and convenience is a big factor when you’re a terrorist.”
Great. So Morris is somehow suggesting that playing "Monkey in the Middle" with our troops is better than coming up with a strategic plan to end the war and bring our soldiers home. Fabulous.

Morris says that if you're a terrorist, it's the convenience of "killing Americans" that they love so much. So if we were to follow that warped logic, why the fuck would you want to keep American troops there?

Watch the insanity here.
