So very, very sad.

The State Department decided to stop publishing an annual report on international terrorism after the government's top terrorism center concluded that there were more terrorist attacks in 2004 than in any year since 1985, the first year the publication covered.

An appropriate point is made:

"Instead of dealing with the facts and dealing with them in an intelligent fashion, they try to hide their facts from the American public," charged Larry C. Johnson, a former CIA analyst and State Department terrorism expert who first disclosed the decision to eliminate the report in The Counterterrorism Blog, an online journal.

Not only does the Bush Administration refuse to admit that their policies have made things worse than ever before, they don't have the courage to admit what a complete disaster those policies have been.

Admitting a problem is the first step to solving it. The Bush Administration has demonstrated that they have no interest whatsoever in even attempting to solve this problem.
