17. I'm just going by the linked article
Whether the main thrust of his editorial was something else, I don't know, as it was apparently published elsewhere. But from the quotes at the link, he unmistakably says that we must not dwell on recriminations over what the Bush Administration might have done. He indicates that we must forget the past and put it behind us (apparently no matter what the Bush Administration did). He also continues to say that we are at war. I take it he means the never-ending war on terror (that will always exist as long as humankind exists, as terrorism will never end).
