I didn’t get around to reading it until today, but Mark Helprin has a sobering but worthwhile piece on how both parties have failed us on national security — the Bush administration through incompetent execution of two wars, and the Democrats by failing to recognize the seriousness of the terrorist threat. “In short, the Right should have had the wit to fight, and the Left should have had the will to fight,” Helprin wrote. “Both failed. The country is exhausted, divided, and improperly protected, and will remain so if the new president and administration are merely another face of the same sterile duality.”
