      These are the very same arguments made by Shrub and Dick to justify our continued presence in Iraq, thereby removing their crimes by declaring war (without Congressional approval since we had already started operations before he sought approval), so Panetta has just made their after-the-crime justification for continueing murder legitimate.  No wonder Shrub's approval rating is getting better.
