The Bush War on Terror: Time to try something different?

The Scorecard
More than two years after the World Trade Center towers came down and the President declared his 'war on terrorism,' it seems reasonable to offer a little scorecard on the 'war(s)' of choice for this administration.

Well worth reading, this editorial/blog doesn't say anything new, but it's a good summary with some very good links. On the plus side al Qaeda and its ilk seem to be focusing on limited attacks, but the minuses are very big. Fundamentally the Bush administration has failed in their approach.

One novel observation I hadn't thought of. Bush can't quit Iraq while Sadaam is free, it's too politically risky.
