That is the new line from the Democrats. In other words, if you believe the Democrats, there is no over-arching threat from terrorism, primarily that motivated by a twisted version of Islam. And if that is the case, then there is no need for any sort of global effort. Nor is there any need to do anything but treat terrorism as a criminal matter.
In other words, back to the Clinton approach which didn't decisively deal with terrorists, which compromised our intelligence gathering by telling al-Qaeda what we knew about them, and which gave state sponsors of terrorism like Iran, Syria, and the Sudan a pass.
We know how that turned out the last time. The World Trade Center was taken down, the Pentagon hit. Nearly 3,000 people killed.
What will the butcher's bill be the next time?
