Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Ash Carter Steps In It

The Secretary of Defense just screwed up.  I'm not sure what compelled him to say that, but the last thing America needs to do is:

A) tear down the ISF.


B) provide any more grist for the War Party's mill.

ISIS took a town it had been besieging for months.  It's a defeat.  Defeats happen. The overall war isn't going well for ISIS, however, and Ash Carter - of all people - should know that.
