Hint: It ain’t US.
“After all, [radical] Islamist groups have won elections in Iran, the Gaza Strip, Lebanon, and Turkey. The [Muslim] Brotherhood is set to become the largest single party in Egypt….
“One way the U.S. government achieves [victory] statistics is to redefine specific events — a shooting at the El Al counter in Los Angeles, an attack on a Jewish community center in the Pacific Northwest, the murder of a military recruiter in Arkansas, and even the Ft. Hood killer — as non-terrorist, non-Islamist criminal acts.”
Ever notice how quick the FBI is to say that the latest solo Jihadi act is NOT terrorism? If we can’t even get the enemy named, how the hell can we win?
UPDATE: Michael Totten, my favorite Middle East correspondent, has a good new piece from Cairo on Egypt’s failed Arab Spring and, among other things, its bizarre memorial to its bogus “victory” in the 1973 war with Israel.
