Fragments for Today

9/11 Commission Report
Just downloaded the PDF. Just reading the TOC makes me think, man those radical Islamists have no idea what a can of whoopass they've opened.

I don't understand his motivation, not that I've been paying much attention.

It looks like we have a winner here.

Homeland Security Investing

To invest in these companies, is most certainly an investment in the future.

RE: 9/11 Commission

According to CNN, the three major actions the Commission has advised are...

1. Establish a Cabinet-level intelligence director.
2. Establish a single counterterrorism center.
3. Create a single, joint congressional committee to oversee homeland security.

So in other words, we will now;

1. Increase the size of government.
2. Make a new level of bureaucracy,
3. And make sure we give the Congress part of the all the new money this is going to cost.

What a great idea...

Exactly, bigger government, more waste of money, yet another agency referenced by initials.

Homeland Security is a waste. This one will be too.

While I'm not inclined to give David "bobo" Brooks the benefit of a doubt, he's got a shrewd comment on the 9/11 report:

"We are facing, the report notes, a loose confederation of people who believe in a perverted stream of Islam that stretches from Ibn Taimaya to Sayyid Qutb. Terrorism is just the means they use to win converts to their cause.

"It seems like a small distinction - emphasizing ideology instead of terror - but it makes all the difference, because if you don't define your problem correctly, you can't contemplate a strategy for victory.

"When you see that our enemies are primarily an intellectual movement, not a terrorist army, you see why they are in no hurry. With their extensive indoctrination infrastructure of madrassas and mosques, they're still building strength, laying the groundwork for decades of struggle. Their time horizon can be totally different from our own. "
