For the record, there was no terrorist attack on American voters yesterday.
There has been no terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11/01.
If Osama bin Laden, Abu Musab Zarqawi et al. could have made our streets run red with blood over these many months, they would have done so.
For that achievement alone, President Bush deserved re-election. And others – Attorney General John Ashcroft springs to mind – deserve great credit and thanks.
The future remains uncertain. It is doubtful that this time next year, I’ll be able to write another post like this. But then, on 9/12/01, I would not have expected to be able to write this one.
