60 Words And A War Without End

January 23, 2014

I keep hearing the question over and over on whether al Qaeda, as it stands today, is a threat to the United States. Analysts disagree on whether AQ is fragmented or still under some control from al Qaeda central.  One thing is true, it's different than it was on 9/11.  As Gregory Johnson so aptly pointed out in this article, "The only thing that has remained the same is that one sentence: 60 words and a war without end." By the '60 words' he is referring to the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF), which gives the President the ability to retaliate against whoever orchestrated the attacks on 9/11.  The article is absolutely worth reading, and I am hopeful we can see more long-form journalism and less regurgitated content.
