Ayman al-Zawahiri

Writes David Martin:

The never-ending Fear Theater.

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

The Covid-19 pandemic is over because al-Qaeda is back on the front page.  

Are you sleeping better knowing that we finally got Osama bin Laden’s successor, Ayman al-Zawahiri?  He’s been a constant concern of every American for many years.

I wonder if we can stop searching airline passengers now, or should we start worrying about who will replace al-Zawahiri and be the new threat in the endless War on Terror.   

Don Rumsfeld said Al Qaeda has many of these mountain hideouts!
