In the view of many commentators the Afghan and Iraq phases of the war on terror symbolizes the success of the campaign to confront terrorist organizations and their sponsors. The Bush administration has decided to bask in the glow of these two triumphs.

Speeches made by both Bush and Rumsfeld have been challenged by the Democratic Party. These speeches signified two components of the administration's strategy in their campaign against terror. First, end the central terrorist sanctuary that was utilized by the al Qaeda transnational terrorist empire as an operational base to train and recruit terrorists, and second, regime change that ended the reign of two despotic governments that sponsored terror. Though significant, no one asked the obvious question: after these two critical victories what impact have these battles had on al Qaeda?

This and many more questions are explored in this informative book.
