Sure body counts are piling up in Afghanistan. We have not suffered a major terrorist attack in country since 9/11 and we have locked up scores, nay, hundreds of people who have thought, plotted or attempted to commit a terrorist act. What are their objectives? To physically destroy America? Impossible. To change the American way of life? Feasible. To have us withdraw from the Middle East? As long as there is oil this will not happen. Yet the terrorists are winning here in America. They have taken away our sense of security. They have taken away some of our basic freedoms. We cannot get on an airline without being scrutinized, sometimes frisked or strip searched. If your name is mistakenly placed on a secret list you cannot fly and will be detained. You email or even telephone conversation can be recorded and analyzed. You residence can be under surveillance by remote equipment without warrant that can penetrate the walls and show what you are doing. And these are just a few things that are happening. So who is wining this war?
