March of Folly

Michael Sheuer, the former CIA analyst and author of Imperial Hubris: Why the West is Losing the War on Terror
was on NPR this morning, saying that the London transit attacks look like the result of Blair's and Bush's lies and failures to confront the true nature of al Quaeda and failure to focus on destroying it. He also warned that other countries are even more vulnerable. The threat will remain as long as our leaders continue to feed us nonsense like the idea that al Quaeda is attacking "freedom itself" and fail to even acknowledge its real motives and base of support.
