On the CNN Interview...

Reader comment on item: Are We Safer Than Nine Months Ago?

Submitted by Jay Lerman (United States), Jun 10, 2002 at 21:17

Dr. Pipes is bringing his thoughtful, substantive ideas to these forums. A good engineer knows that how you define the problem implies the solution set.

Clearly, Dr. Pipes is consistently and carefully continuing to repeat his definition of the problem (isn't it interesting the Harvard Professor couldn't or wouldn't admit it?). Further, Dr. Pipes offers practical applications to solve domestic problems and win this war.

Dr. Pipes in his Hoover Institution Essay (and "Toby Ziegler" on "The West WIng") summed it up,..."They (arabs, militant islamists) will respect us, when we win!"

I hope the President will overcome the State Department's multiple-Arab "desks" appeasement policy and invite Dr. Pipes to the White House for some serious policy-making.
