Is it the one who has been so wrong on Al Qaeda? Obama does not understand the war on terror, except when he wants to invade Pakistan or send troops to Afghanistan. Obama needs to read world history and learn something about how the British and Soviets got bogged down in an Afghan land war.
Afghanistan is a long term project. It will take a generation of US and international support, primarily economic.
Like a lot of liberals, Obama wants to sound tough by saying that he will go after Al Qaeda in Afghanistan.
Let me say it again: Obama and the Dems do not have the stomach to fight the kind of war that they are talking about. The liberal anti-war Dems will turn on Obama as soon as Afghanistan starts costing lives and money.
The Power Line has some great news about the war that we are winning:
"Yesterday's Washington Post reported that on September 10, four of al Qaeda's five principal web sites went dark. They have been disabled ever since.
The result has been a crippling of al Qaeda's ability to communicate with, and direct the activities of, its members and adherents around the world.
Qaeda's already-low ability to carry out attacks in the West has been degraded even further.
Barack Obama likes to say that al Qaeda is stronger than at any time since before September 11, but that is silly.
In fact, the Bush administration's devastation of al Qaeda's organization has been one of its most notable successes, even if it is one that voters are in no mood to acknowledge."
Why did this happen? Because Pres. Bush went after Al Qaeda everywhere, including Iraq!
It happened because Pres. Bush listened to Sec. Powell rather than a state senator named Barrack Obama!
Is Powell endorsing the candidate who speaks about "hope and change" without specifics?
