Quote of the day
It's a bit buried in the middle of an NYT op-ed by Tommy Franks, so let's pull it out:
The war on terrorism has a global focus. It cannot be divided into separate and unrelated wars, one in Afghanistan and another in Iraq. Both are part of the same effort to capture and kill terrorists before they are able to strike America again, potentially with weapons of mass destruction.This is so essential a concept, and a novel concept to so many people, that it deserves to be called out on its own. Bush and the rest of the adminstration should be finding a way to work this in, every time they give a press conference, appear on a talk show, or speak to a reporter.
