The Bush Regime, over the objections of the military, released certain detainees from Guantanamo. Some of them went on to leadership in the Al Qaeda franchise in Yemen, and they appear to have been behind the Underwear Bomber's attempt to bring down an airliner.
Is it wrong to jump to the conclusion that the Bush Regime was somehow in league with Al Qaeda? Or should we just chalk this up to monumental incompetence? Sadly, either explanation is plausible.
