In an article posted today on the Independent Institute's website, Mr. Ivan Eland has stated that evidence exists proving the United States may be losing the Global War on terror (click here). In general, the points he makes are no different than what had been asserted prior to our invasion of Iraq - the Administration pasted together dubious info for a link between Al Qaeda and Saddam, the invasion has had the effect of swelling terrorist ranks rather than lowering them, etc.
However, one thing that is new is the assertion the current administration may be attempting to suppress data showing that we are losing. I'm not incredibly surprised.
What I am surprised at - all of the life and liberty lost (domestically and abroad) during this dangerous "war" and we are still wondering if we could somehow hit a jumper at the last second and win the game? Instead of saying that we "might be losing", can someone tell me how we possibly ever might win?
