Regaing the Mantle of Harry Truman

Fire of Liberty

While I don't agree with everything that Michael O'Hanlon, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, has to say about foreign policy or even what to do with Iraq, I have to say that his most recent piece on the dangerous nature of the terrorists and the horrific results to our nation and our allies in Iraq and the region if we book out is a far better assessment of the reality on the ground than what Senator Reid and his pals on Capital Hill are saying. He might have a different approach that differs from President Bush or the various candidates running for a GOP nod but at least he is thinking about a strategy that is designed to win rather than handing our heads on a platter to the terrorists in Iraq and the region. If the Dems have any thought of winning the White House in 2008 or and reassuming the mantle of Harry Truman, then they would best advised to pay more attention to O'Hanlon's sober approach towards Iraq.
