The New Republic
War of Error by Peter Bergen
How Osama Bin Laden Beat George W. Bush
Post Date October 22, 2007
If there was another winner besides Iran since 9-11, it might be Al Qaeda. It has not been the US. Peter Bergen points out why in this cover story from this week’s New Republic. Of course, from a Cheney perspective, it’s all about the long term (The US hasn’t won — YET!). A seductively logical ideology perhaps, but one with alarmingly little chance of being vindicated and with an enormous and guaranteed economic, political, and human cost regardless of the outcome.
