Election-year war anyone?

An interesting little article about dot-connecting versus analysis.

Dammit, why can't they all just be on the same team? Fire the eggheads!

Bonus: can you spot the White House leak on classified national security matters?

Irony for the day

George Will points out the aptness of the intelligence-first, law-enforcement approach to counterterrorism, AND that Kerry was a proponent of this in '04, AND the White House's contorted, delusional, strawman-reliant response to such an America-hating approach.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the fold, E.J. Dionne wrings his hands about the Democrats' "self-image" and lack of a position on security.

So the choice is: do they resurrect an effective and specific method of shoring up American security that will attract bipartisan, nonpartisan, and military support while laying the groundwork for future operations, or do they cower over a few schoolyard jibes, turn around and get therapy and self-visualization sessions?

Don't answer that.
