Editorial (Continued from political process in a post- Mubarak Egypt and through- out the Middle East. Thugs like Mubarak have created an atmosphere that has allowed fellowship to thrive. The United States needs to be active within the coun- try of Egypt countering the ideology of fellowship helping the people of Egypt develop liberty-minded, democratic infrastructure to secure the country's future. Writing in the' New York Post, Michael Walsh indi- cates: US Intelligence: fight terror with blather. The insightful piece is rather lengthy so [ will high- light. Walsh leads with, The tone isosurprisingly bland. the language dispassionate. almost as if it were the stra- tegic plan of a small non- profit, written by the Human Resources Department -- rather than the US Intelli- gence Community World- wide Threat Assessment as presented this month to Congress by Director of Na- tional Intelligence General James Clapper. "The United States no longer faces -- as in the Cold War one dominant threat. Rather, it is the Mul- tiplicity and interconnected- ness of potential threats and the actors behind them Page 3) -- that constitute our big- gest challenge." reads the ini roduction. Mr. Walsh goes on to ex- plain the blather gets worse and that in peacetime the bureaucratic tone is par for the course but this is not peacetime. We've got news- paper reports of a "weapon of mass effect" found in San Diego; here in New York, state judges were just handed a manual outlining the state's legal framework in the aftermath of a cata- strophic terrorist attack Real leadership involves telling the American people that the Intelligence Com- munity is going to stop these threats. So could we have the tiniest note of national resolution? That we are tak- ing the fight to the enemy, instead of crouching defen- sively in the old duck and cover. With the country having been shot in the back. repeatedly, by intelligence failures, isn't it time to declare forthrightly that vic- tory is our ultimate object- ive and that we won't rest until our enemies are either destroyed or will fight no more forever? Where is General Patton when we need him? What- ever happened to uncondi- tional surrender as national policy? Nowhere in this dismal report, which is a witch's brew of possible horrors. beginning with Terrorism ("Al Qaeda Remains Danger- ous"): Proliferation ("We continue to assess Iran is keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons ... should it choose to do so"): and Global Challenges. including most prominently Afghanistan, Pakistan and the basket case state of Somalia ("After two decades without a stable, central governing authority, Soma- lia continues to be the quint- essential example of a failed state"). Yet Minnesota the Scandinavia of the Mid- west is still welcoming Somalis, even as some of them have gone back home to become suicide bombers. Mr. Walsh goes on to advise Americans of the dangers America faces, therefore l will conclude my editorial warning Amer- icans that under Janet Napolitano and James Clap- per I don't hold out much hope we can survive further attacks, not while they are in charge of security.
