Recent commentary: intelligence on terror

Does the release of the terror analysis support or refute President
Bush's position on terror?

{published 2-Oct-2006, Appleton Post-Crescent)

The "terror analysis" neither supports nor refutes Bush's position, which is, fight 'em to the finish. Those that love setting up straw men are happy: "The War on Terror was supposed to make us safer! How come there are more terrorists?" Maybe we ought to get better analysts. Who seriously believes that the islamo-fascists will cry "Uncle!" and lay down their arms? They certainly won't give up against a country with a proven yellow streak (Vietnam and Mogadishu). It's like the Israelis making "peace" with the Lebanese. In our case the islamo-fascists merely have to wait until a Democrat is elected President. Then she'll pull our troops out of Iraq and the islamo-fascists will be free to plan another series of spectacular attacks -- while dodging a cruise missile or two. Then, when a Republican is President again...WHAM! Lets stick to our guns and finish the job, all right?
