PoliBlogger asks the rhetorical question, “Was Janet Reno the worst AG we have ever had, or what?” and notes
a key difference between the Clinton and Bush approaches to terrorism: sending in the FBI to arrest bin Laden is treating the situation from a law enforcement perspective. The Bush “War on Terror” is the more appropriate approach, I would argue.
Especially ironic since Reno treated law enforcement problems like military ones, as in Waco,
Ruby Ridge, and Elian Gonzalez.
