    An article from a Deputy Director for the war on terrorism, seems from reading that our so called efforts in Iraq are making things worse in the war on terror.

    Thirty new terrorist organizations have emerged since the September 11, 2001, attacks, outpacing U.S. efforts to crush the threat, said Brig. Gen. Robert L. Caslen, the Pentagon's deputy director for the war on terrorism.
    "We are not killing them faster than they are being created," Gen. Caslen told a gathering at the Woodrow Wilson Center yesterday, warning that the war could take decades to resolve.
    Gen. Caslen said that two years ago the Department of Defense had not settled on a clear definition of the nature of the war. Moreover, because each government department had its own perspective, "we all had different strategies," he said.

    It's interesting how the administration will say we're both winning and losing the War on Terror, whichever is more convenient.

    You should go work for the Bush administration with that kind of quality info.

    You're fond of using words but not saying anything, huh?
