In the Philadelphia Inquirer (of all places), NRO’s Jim Geraghty looks at incremental gains in the Global War On Terror:
Small steps such as hajj pilgrims’ doubting a fiery sermon, an attack on bin Laden’s religious authority, and unveiled women may not grab our attention like horrific suicide bombings in Iraq. But they are signs that in a grand ideological battle, the Western values of freedom, religious tolerance, and women’s equality can win over Muslim minds. Day by day, Islamist fundamentalism is losing ground.
Just ask this guy.
