Kevin Drum Doesn’t Stay At Holiday Inn

Sunday, July 30, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Instapundit brings to my attention this incredibly ignorant statement by lefty Kevin Drum:

The fight against Islamic jihadism is essentially a vast, global counterinsurgency, something that the United States is lousy at.

I think civilians like Kevin –and me– ought to be very, very slow in making judgments on the competence of the American military.  I suggest Kevin get a copy of Imperial Grunts, and perhaps interview Robert Kaplan about the many dearly-won successes in the war that deliver all of us the protection we have enjoyed and continue to enjoy precisely because of the extraordinary competence of the American military in the fight against Islamic jihadism.
