From Boston to Fatah

In Zeitgeist for a New Century, we again argued that the war on terror "over there" of necessity entailed a war on terror "in here" and that the images of the war in Baghdad and Guantánamo would become the images of "security" in Boston and San Diego. 

As the fates would have it, once again, the Government confirms what people wish to disbelieve.  Testifying before a Senate Sub-Committee  Assistant Secretary of Defence for Special Operations, Michael Sheehan, told lawmakers that the war on terror would last "at least 10 to years."  Te scope of America’s counterterrorism program, Sheehan said, stretches “from Boston to the FATA,” (a part of Pakistan considered to be a hotbed of terroris.)

From Boston... and if from Boston, then too from Chicago and if from Chicago, then too from San Diego. 

Got it?
