Well, you know the old saying about a broken clock. The rest of her op-ed (almost exactly 90%) is the usual excrement, though. "Well, yeah, Obama's screwing up, but let's blame Bush!"
Being the furthest thing from a Bush fan, I still have to wonder why the jihadists waited until the new president to do this. Hmm!
Oh, as far as Dowd hoping the terrorists won't attack the vicinity of the White House, she has nothing to fear. The White House, Treasury Department, Capitol Hill and similar locations are the safest places to be during a terrorist attack, but not for the reason most people think.
It's like the 9/11 hijackers would have never thought to hit the UN building: why would the terrorists want to harm their allies on American soil, namely those destroying the country from within?
