Will Bunch had the exact same reaction I did in response to today's news.London's police commissioner said the arrests of 21 people came about after a months-long investigation. That's good police work - and they didn't have to kill any innocent civilians in the process. On the flip side, their success makes the failures of the Bush administration's "war on terror" look even worse.Makes you wonder, doesn't it? Most of the big victories in "the war on terror" have been racked up by cops, not by soldiers. Why, it's almost as if terrorism is a law-enforcement problem - and less of a threat when it's handled well in that fashion.
Update: An anonymous commenter on Ameriblog summed it best:
so the british authorities stop a terror plot and that means that republicans in the u.s. are winning the war on terror?
