The Javits Theory of Terrorist Threats

I was reading Brad Plumer and thinking that if foreign fighters can get in and get out of Iraq, we have a problem. Jihadi summer camp turns pissed off extremists into pissed off extremists who know how to build bombs, manage far-flung communications networks, and organize and stage attacks against civilians and the American military.

Iraq. It's not flypaper. It's a goddam convention center. I can't see how this is a good thing, and it's yet another dangerous consequence of this administration's attachment to fairy tales of an easy victory blinding them to the critical need for postwar planning.

Well, at least we can take comfort in the fact that nobody thought we had any other choice. I mean, the Bush Administration really thought those WMDs were dangerous--more dangerous than any other country like Iran, North Koreal, Libya...oh, WAIT.
