The Strategic Complexity of a Children's Bedtime Story

In writing on Bush's suggestion that somehow it's Al-Qaeda that's causing the "tough" situation in Iraq right now, Josh Marshall writes:
I really never thought this country could be run for a significant period of time by a president who seems captive of dingbat conspiracy theories and the strategic complexity of a children's bedtime story."
He adds, however:
To the extent that we can read 'al Qaida' as a gloss for 'people blowing things up' this is no doubt true to a certain extent. But that's sort of like the president saying not to blame the Katrina debacle on him when it was mainly the hurricane's fault.
