Why, Oh Why Are We Not Safe?

So, there's still a jihad against America. The Bush administration hasn't tidied up the world. Terrorism still exists. What a surprise! There's only been a jihad against the U.S. for thirty years, so why couldn't Bush fix things over the past six years?

After years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq and targeted killings in Yemen, Pakistan and elsewhere, the major threat to the United States has the same name and the same basic look as in 2001: Al Qaeda, led by Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahri, plotting attacks from mountain hide-outs near the Afghan-Pakistani border.

The headline on the intelligence estimate, said Daniel L. Byman, a former intelligence officer and the director of the Center for Peace and Security Studies at Georgetown University, might just as well have been the same as on the now famous presidential brief of Aug. 6, 2001: “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.”
Six Years After 9/11, the Same Terror Threat. Hopefully, we won't have to worry much longer. The next president will be a Democrat and I am positive he or she will take care of the terrorism problem once and for all.
