Now That’s A Legacy

President Bush just paid a visit to Afghanistan’s democratically elected President, Hamid Karzai. Visiting a democratically elected Afghan President would have been unheard of at any time in the past. Prior to the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, that nation’s leaders actively promoted terrorism and provided a safe harbor for terror organizations. Today, an American ally is in power, assisting the U.S in its effort to root out terrorism. This remarkable turn of events is the direct result of our brave soldiers’ efforts under the leadership of President George W. Bush.

Of course, much works remains in rooting out terrorism in Afghanistan and elsewhere, but the importance of having an ally in power in Afghanistan cannot be overstated. Although terrorists still exist in the country, it is much more difficult for them to operate. They no longer have the benefit of a government-provided safe harbor. They are on the run. They are hiding in their caves. Their operations are severely hindered and they are under a constant threat of death or capture.

President Bush’s decision to go to war in Afghanistan has led to the liberation of millions and denied Al Qaeda a base from which they can seriously plot attacks on American soil. That’s a legacy to be proud of.
