During today’s press briefing, White House press secretary Dana Perino was asked about yesterday’s assassination attempt on Afghan president Hamid Karzai. She said she was “frustrated” by the fact that Afghan security forces weren’t getting the credit they deserved, adding that it’s “damn hard work” protecting against terrorist attacks:

Look, we have to be right every single time in order to prevent terrorist attacks. It is damn hard work. And I shouldn’t have probably said that word, but I am just really frustrated of thinking about how hard these Afghan security forces work and how much they are up against and how we have a responsibility to continue to stay there and help them.

Watch it:

Add “securing Afghanistan” to the Bush administration’s extensive list of failures it excuses away by calling it “hard work.”
