A Thorough Indictment

J.D. Henderson really hits it out of the park with this bill of particulars. Go read it. Trust me. Via Kevin Drum, who has more, including a link to an article discussing the contents of the new National Intelligence Estimate. Among other findings, the article observes:

A stark assessment of terrorism trends by American intelligence agencies has found that the American invasion and occupation of Iraq has helped spawn a new generation of Islamic radicalism and that the overall terrorist threat has grown since the Sept. 11 attacks.

Drum added this observation:

The point of an anti-terror policy is not to look tough. The point of an anti-terror policy is to reduce terror. Republicans pretty clearly don't get this.

No they don't, and far too large a bloc seems intent on repeating the same mistakes.
