The War on Idealogy

Who attacked our country? The evidence we have gathered all points to a collection of loosely affiliated terrorist organizations known as al Qaeda.
President George W. Bush, Sept. 20, 2001

Al-Qaeda is not an organization. Al-Qaeda is a way of working ... but this has the hallmark of that approach."
Prime Minister Tony Blair, July 14, 2005

4 years ago, Bush and Blair waged war against an organization known as Al Qaeda. Now they admit what many of us have known for a long time... that the fabrication of Al Qaeda was a slick way to market and sell a war against an idealogy.

Isn't it just grand? While I like knowing that I knew all along what was going on, it doesn't make it any better.

And it has now changed from the "Global War on Terror" to the "Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism".

Ok. I got it now! I'm glad they made it much more clear!

Saw you on my blog, glad to find another ex-pat on this foreign soil!
