It's all in how you look at it

The headline of this article seems laughable -- much more on point is this quote:
"Look at al Qaeda's plans," said Michael Scheuer, who once led the CIA team devoted to finding al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. "They're very simply defined in two phrases: spread out America's forces and bleed the United States to bankruptcy. I'd argue America has been under attack successfully every day since 9/11 from that perspective.
Ouch. Sounds about right to me, given the multiples of our national budget that are being poured into the Middle Eastern sands.
