WAR: I Ran So Far Away

I heard this bombshell on Imus this morning (because I was too lazy to change radio stations in my car) - Al Qaeda is back in business, and guess where they have training camps? (Hint: think "axis of evil." Hint, hint: First up on Michael Ledeen's hit list). Clearly, we need to go in and get rid of them, ASAP, regardless of the war on Iraq. It shouldn't slow us down militarily - if we can't take on Iran and Iraq at the same time, we have more serious problems than we think - and it wouldn't necessarily require an immediate effort at regime change, although once we're done with Saddam that should be at the top of the priority list. Diplomatically, it may upset the applecart, but Bush has already established a fairly ironclad precedent of chasing Al Qaeda wherever they may be, and he can't plausibly find a reason here not to do so sooner or later, preferably sooner.
