We are fighting bin Laden's al Qaida in Iraq; Iraq is central to the war on terror; and against this enemy, America can accept nothing less than complete victory.

Summer's the season for taking long weekends, so I'll be out of pocket again for a few days.
President Bush gave a good speech today at Charleston Air Force Base, South Carolina. I hope he gives many more like it. I wish he had started doing this in 2003, and I'll never understand why he hasn't done so. But, better late than never.
Al Qaida is proud of wrecking plenty of vacation plans in the worst possible way. So while we're enjoying our summer vacations, let's keep in mind the sacrifices of our troops in the Middle East, who make our normal everyday lives possible.
