Today's quote

Big Media Matthew Yglasias weighs the tactical antiterrorist value of our recent success in killing Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
The Israelis certainly have proven a lot of things about the tactical/operational aspects of counterterrorism time and again. And, indeed, again. And again. They've proven them so often, for so long, that one might almost conclude that tactical counterterrorism accomplishes very little absent resolution of the underlying political conflicts.
Maybe the Israelis aren't trying hard enough.
