Whether we like to admit it or not, the war on terrorism is still being fought. The immediate challenge is to identify the best strategy to permanently defeat the terrorist menace. Unless you share Gen. Michael V. Hayden's defeatist view of world affairs, that is.
The dam seems to be breaking on the nearly eight-month-long cover-up concerning the deadly jihadist attack on Americans and their facilities in Benghazi, Libya.
