Why I'm happy Bush is going to run on The War on Terror

Key point in the article:

A former senior counterterrorism official in the Bush administration points out that "there have been more major terror attacks in the 30 months since 9/11 than in the 30 months before."

Basically, things are getting wildly out of hand. Had we approached al Qaeda from a police operations strategy and tried to scoop them up, we might have done some real damage. But instead, as the article says, it's possible "that giant American fist has effectively smashed down on a blob of mercury, sending it in myriad directions and making it all but untraceable." The "flypaper strategy" hasn't worked. Instead, we've created even more terrorists, and aimed them at us and our allies.

Nice going, W. Way to make us safer.
