Michael Hirsh has a great opinion article, recommending that Obama end the nebulous War On Terror, & instead pursue a specific war on Al Qaeda.
Amen brotha! The last so few years I get so frustrated how most Americans have fallen for WOAT Bush's WOT rhetoric, conflating Iraq on Al Qaeda. A nebulous War On Terror may never end. OTOH a specific war to capture/kill Al Qaeda top leaders like Bin Laden, as well as accounting for dangerous nuclear & biological material in the form USSR countries, IS a necessary, appropriate, definable, & doable job.
Obama has the charisma to explain this concept to the American sheeple who have been mislead by the WOT rhetoric.
