Terrorism and opportunism
Kevin Drum on taking terrorism seriously: “The American public can hardly be expected to take terrorism seriously if it’s obvious that the Bush administration itself views al-Qaeda as primarily a political opportunity rather than a real problem. Sooner or later, we’re going to pay the price for this feckless and irresponsible approach.”
I think America’s paying it already.
Laura Rozen at War and Piece: “It is kind of staggering to realize the extent to which we may have been sold a fiction the past four years. Orwellian. All the more staggering because it’s propaganda in the service of exaggerating a threat that needs no exaggeration.”
There’s the Bush Administration for you. Now what was that about Cheney again?
