IF WE KNEW THEN WHAT WE KNOW NOW

Why didn't I think of this?

Joel Mowbray asks a very simple question and I think gets the answer right.

His question? What if we had hit al Qaeda before 9/11?

A pre-emptive strike? Can you imagine the outrage on the left? The barrage of negative news from the NY Times and BBC and CNN, et. al.?

Yet, how would that have been any different from the many operations that have been carried out over the past year? We have no idea how many other "9/11s" have been prevented due to our actions. We can't prove we prevented them. Just like we couldn't have proved a pre-emptive strike against al Qaeda would have prevented 9/11.

Provocative question. I'd like to hear the remaining Dem pres candidates answer that one.

(Hat tip to Joe S.)
