We Don't Negotiate With Terrorists...

except when we do:

yes, another Bush flip flop. The running total (wildly incomplete, it's just my own nonexhaustive list):

(1) we don't negotiate with terrorists--but we will negotiate with Sunni insurgents
(2) hearings on secret spying (first against, now for)
(3) McCain anti-torture legislation (first against, then for, then possibly against again after trying to reserve right to deviate from legislation)
(4) talking about secret spying program (first said he couldn't talk about it at all because it is classified, then acknowledged it was going on and said it would continue)
(5) all judicial nominees deserve an up or down vote...except Harriet Myers, who was withdrawn when opposed by the radical right
(5) Department of Homeland Security (first opposed, then supported)
(6) reduction of specific pollutant emissions (supported during 2000 campaign, then opposed)

Don't forget these biggies...

We've had 167 reasons given to us for why invading Iraq was justified...and Bush opposed the creation of a 9/11 commission before he supported it!
