Bush claims that the world is much safer now than before the war, but thats not true. The State Department admitted there was an increase in terrorist activity last year and bin Laden, the worlds most dangerous terrorist, is still free as a bird. Its amazing how Bush has the nerve to say hes doing a good job on war on terror because anyone who reads newspapers can see that there is now much more terrorism than before the war. The fact is, Bush hasnt made the world safer. On the contrary, Bush did a big favor for bin Laden by focusing on Iraq instead of tracking down members of al Qaeda in Afghanistan. Bin Laden is smiling because Bush got America into a guerilla war. Al Qaeda has regrouped because in early 2002 the Bush administration focused on Iraq and ignored pleas to commit more forces to Afghanistan. As a result, Taliban is resurgent and bin Laden is free as a bird. Most Americans still believe Bush is doing a good job protecting America, but their belief is false. Bushs reputation for being tough on terror is based on image, not reality.
