“They’ve got to be right one time,” Bush said at the National Counterterrorism Center in McLean. “We’ve got to be right 100 percent of the time to protect the American people.”
President Bush has reasserted the one percent doctrine in a remarkably defeatist way. Terrorism works by injecting irrational fear into a society. In our case, the terrorists have an ally because that fear serves the Bush political agenda.
A people that is scared are the most pliant, apparently. Let’s prove that view wrong.
