The Obama Doctrine

As a followup to the Global Apology Tour, President Obama is springing into action yet again. First he released Bush administration memos about the use of coercive interrogation techniques. And now he's talking possible probes and prosecutions for former Bush administration officials. Yeah, that'll make us safer. Once al Qaida sees how "humane" we are, I'm sure they'll abandon their quest for global jihad, and their hatred for those who don't believe as they do.

I have to give President Obama credit for such swift and decisive action. He's wasting no time in taking the fight to the enemy. Problem is, he's not waging war against the terrorists. He's waging war against the Republicans. And for the moment, he's winning.

But what if the terrorists mount an attack on US soil within the next couple of years? There will come a time when the blame-Bush strategy won't work anymore. At that point, Obama and the Democrats in Congress would be finished. Since these folks are so thorough at covering their political backsides, I can only conclude that they don't think there's a risk of terrorist attack. In other words, the people in charge of protecting us don't believe there's really a threat. I don't know about you, but that thought scares the hell out of me.
