One of the things casual observers of the presidential debates might remember is that John Kerry said of the war in Iraq, “Wrong War, Wrong Place, Wrong Time.”
Senator Kerry and the media are heavily invested in questioning President Bush’s handling of the war in Iraq. It’s a ‘death by a thousand paper cuts’ strategy that focuses on a car bombing here and a beheading there, as proof of a situation out of control. The problem with this type of news cycle driven coverage is that it offers no perspective on the challenges faced and the obstacles overcome since 9/11, by way of the implementation of the Bush Doctrine.
The Global War On Terror series was written to recap what has, and has not, been accomplished by the Bush administration since 9/11.
