Getting Serious About Winning
FIVE YEARS AFTER the attacks of September 11, 2001, we face many threats at home and abroad, yet our response has been mostly superficial and expedient. One is left to wonder: Are we serious about winning this fight?
So begins my latest piece at The Daily Standard. As one friend jokingly put it, “so this is your ‘coming out’ piece then?” in reference to this being an article that isn’t primarily focused on intelligence issues. While it is true that I lean in a certain direction I find it increasingly hard to talk about these issues without coming to play with a certain color jersey. I tried playing “skins” but if you don’t have a uniform someone will just assign you one, so I might as well show the colors. If that sounds like a half-hearted endorsement that’s not my intention. As I allude to in the piece, I don’t think this is a subject area that should be bantered about like highway funding.
Update II: As does Newt. Now, to find the campaign office. ;- )
