We Still Won’t Admit the Obvious About the Terrorism We Face

There are a couple things that strike me as chilling after watching yet another terror attack unfold in Europe last week, one that thankfully killed no one despite injuring 22 people.

First, the target was once again a highly trafficked, highly difficult area to police: the subway transit system. The strategy of President Bush following the 9/11 attacks was simple to understand: fight terrorists on their home turf so we aren’t fighting them in our skyscrapers and streets. It’s logical and reasonable. But there’s always the unintended consequence.
