This may be the best synthesis I've come across on "the war on terror."
http://youtube.com/watch?v=8fBuV9JoNdA

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes University of Pennsylvania political scientist Ian Lustick for a discussion of the War on Terror including its erroneous assumptions, its consequences for domestic politics, and its implications for al queada long term strategy. He compares the Bush administration response to 911 to America's response to the Soviet threat during the Cold War. Series: Conversations with History

It runs about an hour but is worth the time to watch. Lustick does an amazing job detailing how the war on terror has taken on a life of its own, how it has become the enemy, a vortex which has replaced any reasonable response to terrorism.
