The Reverse Fly-Trap

My low-point in letting hope get the better of the evidence in the Bush era was my airing of the "flytrap" theory a few years back. The theory posited that chaos in Iraq might give the U.S. a chance to target and kill Jihadist terrorists in the Middle East more efficiently than constantly playing defense. Four years later, and it's clear the reverse is happening. Chaos in Iraq and our presence there is honing Jihadist skills, weaponry and tactics.
