aid and comfort to the enemy

Jane Fonda, Cindy Sheehan, and other anti-war protesters are often accused of giving "aid and comfort to the enemy", and "demoralizing our troops" with their unsupportive stance. If that is so, then how would one suppose the fiasco in New Orleans will be viewed by both the Enemy and the Troops.
The enemy cant help but be thrilled. If there would be any doubt about the effectiveness of an attack on the U.S., the mis-handling of Katrina by just about everyone involved will have laid that to rest. Make no mistake, the country will be feeling the effect of this disaster viscerally for months to come, and New Orleans will probably never recover (unless one considers strip-malls, luxury vacation condos, and the inevitably Disney-fied rebuilding of the French Quarter to be recovering).
As for the troops, how many National Guardsmen are watching the disaster and thinking, "if disaster hits my hometown and I'm not there, who will help my family"? To say nothing of what Guardsmen from Lousiana must be feeling right now.
So, who's been more damaging to the security of the United States? Cindy Sheehan (who, however she felt before, during, and after, did sacrifice a son) or George W. Bush (who has sacrificed nothing but partisanship, scientific credibility, our nation's reputation, the goodwill of the world, and 1887 soldiers who were not his children).

Ask yourself this question: Do you feel more secure now than you did 4 years ago?
