Joe Lieberman doesn't mention Iraq

It's been a while since I've taken a cheap shot at Joe Lieberman (CT-Lieberman), but this post prompted me to do so.

According to the transcript on Lieberman's website (congrats on finally getting that up, by the way), Lieberman didn't say the word "Iraq" once in his September 15 speech at Fairfield University. LamontBlog and Atrios give him grief for this, but I'm not sure that's entirely fair. After all, the speech is titled “A Report to the People of Connecticut on the War on Terror” and we all know that Iraq has nothing to do with the war on terror. So there's no reason for Joe to mention it.

Of course, given that Iraq has nothing to do with the war on terror, the good senator might have taken a moment to explain what it is exactly we're doing there (aside from depleting our military and bolstering Iran). I'm sure that Lieberman's next speech will spell all that out in great detail. [insert link to .mp3 of crickets]
