Who Needs Weapons to Fight a War?

by Clifford D. May

Maybe it’s just luck that we haven’t been hit by terrorists on American soil in four years.

So if we trash the Patriot Act, stop targeting terrorists overseas and stop coercing those we capture to make them talk, if we make it more difficult for our spies to snoop, if we retreat from Iraq, leaving the battlefield to Saddam Hussein loyalists and al-Qaeda, maybe we’ll be just fine. What have we got to lose?
