the forgotten war

Eugene Robinson reminds us of the war Bush isn't fighting -- against Al Qaeda and stateless terrorist actors.

Instead, we're ass-deep in Iraq and getting deeper every day, 130,000 US troops accomplishing who knows what. Iraqi insurgents were NOT anti-American terrorists before March 2003. The anti-American terrorists from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and other countries, are all still out there -- all Anglo-Pakistani types in this latest plot. And it was intelligent (British) police work that spoiled this attack. Not invading other countries (which CAUSE resentments that lead to attacks) or torturing people.
