Last week, as President Obama was dancing over Osama bin Laden’s watery grave, I wrote a piece arguing the War on Terror isn’t over. Here is the concluding paragraph:
I am well aware that we are a country weary from more than a decade of war in Afghanistan and Iraq. But the uncomfortable truth is that there are still jihadists who wish to kill Americans here and abroad and have the means to carry out their evil intentions. We are only a box cutter away from a painful reminder that the War on Terror isn’t over.
Or that might be a pair of briefs as word came late yesterday of the CIA foiling another underwear bomb plot via al Qaeda in Yemen. Fortunately, in this case, our intelligence remained one step ahead of the enemy. But new plots are being hatched and, heaven forbid, but next time we might not be so lucky. In the meantime, President Obama would be wise to stop gloating. However, as the election campaign unfolds, it will be plain to see that he is not in possession of such wisdom.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
