Experts say US is losing war on terror

Experts say US is losing war on terror
"America's badly damaged image in the Muslim world could take more than a generation to set right. And Bush's mounting political woes at home have undermined the chance for any bold U.S. initiatives to address the grim social realities that feed Islamic radicalism, they say.

'It's been fairly disastrous,' said Benjamin, who worked as a director for counterterrorism at the National Security Council from 1994 to 1999.

'We have had some very important successes getting individual terrorists. But I think the broader story is really quite awful. We have done a lot to fuel the fires, and we have done a lot to encourage people to hate us,' he added in an interview."

Call me an idealist (I would take that as a compliment!), but what is most important is the cruel and immoral death and destruction the U.S. has caused, not its image in the muslim world...
