'Bin Ladenism'

The Pentagon's vision for the "Long War."

BY BRENDAN MINITER

At a luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington recently, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld sized up the progress of the war on terror, compared it to the struggle against Nazism and communism, and noted this struggle will take years to win. It was similar to remarks the president, the vice president and other top administration officials have been repeating for years. And it also is the line of reasoning that the press corps has largely dismissed as hyperbole. Many in the media simply don't accept the comparison of Osama bin Laden to Hitler.

  • Just as many in the media and elsewhere did not at the time accept Hitler as evil.

  • You are correct, sir.

    Just as some today, i.e. the doorknob "predident" of Iran, and Noam Chomsky don't believe the Holocaust ever happened, which then would mean that Hitler was not a bad guy after all.
