As Sept. 11 Approaches, Keep Being Careful…

There’s journalistic comment that the killing of Osama Bin Laden has given rise to “a premature triumphalism” that has al-Qaeda on the ropes, warns a Los Angeles Times op-ed piece. We don’t know how widespread that sort of wishful thinking may be, but the Afghan insurgents’ downing of a Chinook helicopter and the deaths of the 38 people aboard – including 19 U.S. Navy Seals – should brush any such complacency aside.

Remember, the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11th is coming. Bin Laden supposedly had plans for that occasion, and his survivors may as well.  This is an epic rivalry we’re involved in and, unfortunately, it’s got more time to go – how much, no one can say. But keep being careful.
