    He's a part of the right-wing base.  Interesting in context, isn't it, that Al Qaeda means "the base" in Arabic?  

    Before being an enemy combatant, you have to be an enemy.  Our own reich-wingers may use terrorism, but then so do our own extreme environmentalists.  

    Right, left, Islamic, Pagan, Christian -- someone who is an extremist adopts extremist methods.  Which simply demonstrates that there can be no consistent war on terror, because terror is a means, not an ideology.  It's like declaring war on weapons rather than human enemies.  

    Considering that a war on weapons, like the war on terror, is self-sustaining, one wonders if that is not the point:  create an endless state of war to justify ever-increasing crisis and the martial law (read: dictatorial power) that accompanies it.
