I think that withdrawal from Iraq â€” it obviously gives al Qaeda a huge victory. Huge victory. On the other hand, if we stay in Iraq, it gives them the opportunity to kill more Americans, which they really like.
One of the things, though, that I think the antiwar crowd has not considered is that, if weâ€™re putting the Americans right within their armsâ€™ reach, they donâ€™t have to come to Wall Street to kill Americans. They donâ€™t have to knock down the trade center. They can do it around the corner, and convenience is a big factor when youâ€™re a terrorist.
