THE POSITION WITH THE WORST JOB SECURITY ON THE PLANET…. | The Washington Monthly
It’s part of what I consider one of the best-kept secrets in American politics: the Obama administration’s recent successes on counter-terrorism. Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the Taliban’s top military commander, was captured. High-profile terrorists have been killed — Hakimullah Mehsud, Baitullah Mehsud, Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan — while many more have been arrested — Najibullah Zazi, Talib Islam, and Hosam Maher Husein Smadi.
I’m sure Rudy Giuliani and Liz Cheney will be along any minute now to tell us that these developments are a sign of weakness, but they’ll no doubt sound pretty foolish.
