Your comments (and those of Tony Blankley) in your October 12th piece are even more valid now. In his speech to the troops, at Norfolk,VA., Pres. Bush seemed to go even further in his analysis of and commitment against jihad. Indicating that his political commitment for freedom and democracy, he linked various jihadist murders around the world, even specifying the assassination of Mr. Van Gogh of the Netherlands as an example of the violence of a fanatical, intolerant ideology.

Pres. Bush urged all democrats to keep up the fight against the jihadist imperialists, and not to consider the possibility of a quiet life, because our struggle is likely to last a generation.; however, this message again was obscured or ignored by much of the media
as it pursued some 'breaking news' at the White House.
