Spaces of Opportunity

At the interstices of Bin Laden's falsehoods and distortions and the unbridled criminality of his foot soldiers-their petty sadism, inane brutality and murder-are the crossroads of our many little victories if we exploit them. We need only do two things to do better (not perfect) exposing their crimes by our refusal to match him in this the closest of close quarters, and protect by deeds some of the civilians even if we lack the men to protect all. This is the moral high ground we hear so much about, preferred by headquarters dandies and pundits to the mundane actual high ground. If only we were led by morally courageous, uncompromised men these victories can be half won by mere words, the other half being on hand to show people the difference.
