Implied Dissent

Monday, March 29, 2004

My first reaction to Israel's assassination of Yassin was 'so what'? After reading these two pieces on the incident, I'm starting to have some doubts as to the morality and wisdom of killing Yassin.
Here are a couple of good reactions to Richard Clarke's "Against all Enemies". While it's certainly possible the man has an axe to grind, I tend to believe him, and I think suggestions that this is the wrong time to bring the topic up due to the war are way off base. We're told that the war on terrorism is going to take decades, that Iraq represents a generational commitment. If that's the truth, should Clarke wait 30 years to being his insights to the public?
Feeling overlawyered?
