On the same day we heard reports that the Obama Administration wants to draw down troop levels in Iraq from 45,000 to a dangerously low 3,000 by the end of the year, the Washington Post published an article titled “Al-Qaeda in Iraq, down but hardly out.”
The piece says, “They don’t need training camps like they had in Afghanistan pre-9/11, where they went around on monkey bars. It wasn’t the monkey bar training that allowed them to take down planes on 9/11, it was the ability to sit and think of ways of hijacking an airplane.”
A major strategy of President Bush’s War on Terror was to go on the offense against terrorists and their sponsors. We would take the fight to the terrorists on their turf, disrupt their networks and put them on the run, leaving them without the “ability to sit and think” of new ways to launch attacks here on our homeland.
