"How will he meet his god having slaughtered so many men and women? He has committed so many crimes."
Ahmed Manajid, Iraqi soccer player, describing President Bush

I haven't been watching the olympics, so I have missed the Bush campaign ads that use Iraqi and Afghan athletes as propaganda tools. Too bad Karl Rove didn't check with Iraqi athletes before he came up with this idea. They want the U.S. occupation of their country to end, and Manajid said he would be part of the resistance if he weren't on the olympic team. The athletes spoke to Sports Illustrated, which also has a link to the ad.
