Vietnam Syndrome Back With a Vengeance

It's back, writes Norman Podheretz in today's WSJ.com Opinion Journal, or perhaps it never left us. When Lowell, the Hedgehog, started this blog, not long after September 11, 2001 began the misnamed War on Terror (it is actually the War against Islamism), he presciently posted the "Thought for the Year," a quote from North Vietnamese General Vo Nguyen Giap, in a 1990 interview with historian Stanley Karnow that has appeared ever since in the left-hand margin of this blog. Read it again now, in light of the Congressional Democrats performance during the testimony of General Petraeus, and ask yourself if anything has changed.
