UK Report : Bush Working for Iran

What will come as no surprise to many -- although Howie will fight this idea tooth and nail -- is that it turns out the greatest beneficiary of the Bush administration's So-Called War on TerrorTM may, in fact, be...IRAN. This, according to a British think-tank:

The report, by researchers at think-tank the Royal Institute for International Studies in London – also known as Chatham House – says: “There is little doubt that Iran has been the chief beneficiary of the war on terror in the Middle East.

“The United States, with Coalition support, has eliminated two of Iran’s regional rival governments – the Taliban in Afghanistan in November 2001 and Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq in April 2003 – but has failed to replace either with coherent and stable political structures.”

The report also says that as long as the middle east remains unstable, or grows more unstable, Iran will continue to benefit.

Furthermore, rather than pulling the Iraqi people closer to the US, the invasion of Iraq has left Iran "the most influential power in Iraq."

Heckuva job, Bushie.
