I'm sure that above question is rhetorical, and, honestly, I don't see where it fits into the discussion. However, I think it makes my point of not being contained.
Read material other than National Review and you'll learn that most of the individuals responsible for embassy/US interest bombings have been apprehended. (Oh, and btw, coincidently, none were Iraqi) These people are apprehended through the help and cooperation of other governments - we don't send our law enforcement all over the world chasing bad guys. It's called a good foriegn policy.
Now imagine if you do live to be 40 or 50 and our leaders, by then, have trashed our foriegn policy so badly that other governments are no longer willing to help us hunt down terrorists. It's already happening. (do you really think bin Laden and Hussein are that good at playing hide and seek without help?) Will you then still feel safe and secure?
