Reader comment on item: Democrats Unlearn 9/11

Usually i agree with you but right now i have to say that ... this time I do not. "Democrats" are NOT against a war on terror, we want that war on terror to be carried out in the most effective manner.

it is true that previous administrations did absolutely nothing to recognize and counter the rising extremism in the muslim world. but then our state department , in my opinion, has usually been remiss if not intentionally disengenuous for just as long as i can remember.
