David Neiwert adds to the conversation about liberals-and-terrorism.

Let me add just one thing: Beinart's obsession is that it's the "softs" who have prevented Democrats from having a coherent and distinct and sufficiently muscular foreign/anti-terrorism policy.

Beinart's got it exactly wrong. The primary thing which prevented the Democrats from having that was the insistence by people like Beinart that it was necessary to support the Iraq war, in order, presumably, to not be "soft."
