The Build-a-War Workshop (NYT)

the lesson of 9/11 was that we've reached the point when something has to be done about modern weapons and disgruntled groups

in particular, the groups have to be hunted and pursued by every nation on earth, so that they cannot grow to a size that can pull anything off

smaller groups escape detection but are unable to do major mischief

bigger groups are detected and wiped out

one state sponsor was Iraq, so we got rid of that. Almost a free shot.

As long as they want to fight us in Iraq, fine. We fight anywhere.

Pulling out is not the goal. The war will continue, in Iraq or elsewhere.

That's the lesson of 9/11.

A report by the Pentagon inspector general has finally confirmed that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's intelligence office cooked up a link between Iraq and Al Qaeda to help justify an unjustifiable war.
