Ledeen on McChrystal and the War on Terror

Or whatever they're calling it this week at Foggy Bottom.

The Corner - National Review Online:
The region is bubbling, lots of it (including Afghanistan) due to Iran, and we still have no Iran policy. Dennis Ross doesn't seem to have one. While we're purging, send him back to the lecture circuit and find someone who sees the war plain, and can wage political war on the mullahs.


Yeah, like that's going to happen under this Administration. There are days when I think GVDL is right, and it's going to take another 9/11 (or something worse) to convince a lot of Americans to take Iran seriously, and then there are days when I think even that horror won't be enough. At which point I really regret having had to give up drinking.
