The so-called "War on Terra" is being waged against an elusive, resourceful, handful of suspected terrorists.

Today Gonzales mentioned what a great job the NSA was doing preventing terror plots in the United States from succeeding. He just regretted he couldn't give us the details because its CLASSIFIED. Shucks.

Rumsfeld went out to promote the war last Friday.
The United States is engaged in what could be a generational conflict akin to the Cold War, the kind of struggle that might last decades as allies work to root out terrorists across the globe and battle extremists who want to rule the world, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said yesterday.

Rumsfeld, who laid out broad strategies for what the military and the Bush administration are now calling the "long war," likened al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden to Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin while urging Americans not to give in on the battle of wills that could stretch for years.

Not only is al Qaeda tough, but they're costing us 20 times as much as Hitler and there's only a handful of them. They are efficient at tying up our resources and public consciousness.
$439.3 billion for the Department of Defense’s base budget, a 7-percent increase over 2006, and a 48-percent increase over 2001.
