    The US is losing the "war on terror"

    From the Independent Institute: Evidence that the U.S. May Be Losing the Global War on Terror

    According to Larry Johnson, a former CIA analyst and State Department terrorism expert who still has many sources within the intelligence community, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s office is suppressing data showing that the number of major terrorist attacks worldwide exploded from 175 in 2003 to 625 in 2004, the highest number since the Cold War began to wane in 1985. U.S. officials said that when analysts at the National Counterterrorism Center declined the office of the secretary’s invitation to use a methodology that would reduce the number of terrorist attacks, her office terminated publication of the State Department’s annual “Patterns of Global Terrorism” report.

    Personally, I don't see how anyone, speaking truthfully can say that the crusades are being won, considering the amount of terrorism has increased. Bush's "christian soldiers" marching on to war, raping, abusing, torturing and committing other untold war crimes are hardly helping to stop hatred against the west are they.

    They did a god job of establishing The Base (pun intended) and then spuring them on. But to see it as a failure, we'd first have to believe that T.W.A.T. is really about fighting terrorism.

    It's fine to point out the failures of the officially stated goals, though.
