Thinking About the Past
It's "everyone remember what happened three years ago" day, 2004-09-11. Today, I found this analysis by Juan Cole about the strategy of al-Qaeda very enlightening. He makes a convincing argument that America's initial response to 9/11 was really effective in countering bin Laden and his allies, but that the war in Iraq is likely to promote the al-Qaeda agenda of creating an Islamic superstate in the region.
