Kerry Gives Voice To Mainstream Democratic Ideals
Look first at a few of the recent findings on terrorism that relate to America's role in the world -- not intelligence secrets guarded in the bowels of the CIA or the Pentagon, but newspaper articles that any responsible American can easily access and understand.

The respected International Institute of Strategic Studies in London, for instance, recently published its estimate that al-Qaida and its affiliates are now 18,000 strong across the world, many of them new recruits who have come out of the Afghan and Iraq wars. "Nothing suggests ... that Islamic extremism and terrorism have been eliminated in a single country," Anthony Cordesman, one of America's best and most reliable strategists, says. "On the contrary, new leaders and fighters have emerged."

Not even Bush Republicans will deny that the standing of America across the world has reached depths never before seen in history. Yet every serious study, such as the just-released commission report on 9/11, states that the war on terrorism -- really a war against certain specific types of radical Islamists -- can only be addressed by a common political, economic and intelligence policy that America must embark upon with other countries across the globe.
