The Gorelick Wall Redux

My new Pajamas Media editorial [1] deals with what I’ve considered the biggest problem America faces just now in our War on terror… our return to the underlying attitude of the Democrats that brought us the “Gorelick Wall.”

The bottom line is that, like the Clinton administration, the Obama administration has approached al-Qaeda’s war on us thinking that it could be contained and dealt with in the civilian criminal justice system. We don’t, in other words, need to treat this as a war. We may or may not have returned officially to the Gorelick policy, but we returned to the attitude which gave us the policy when we put Democrats back in charge of the executive branch.

What is most alarming to me is I see no moves on the part of the administration to correct this problem, as I discuss in my piece, there.
