Based on reading of Whittacker, Crotty (attachment below), Richard Clarke (“Ten Years Later“) , James Fallows(“Success Without Victory“) and Norman Podhoretz(“The War Against World War IV), compare and contrast the politics policies on terrorism of the President Bush administration to the President Obama administration.
To what degree do you agree/disagree with different policies and procedures to combat terrorism?
How do the varying policy statements square with your understanding of the politics and policy of terrorism?
Do these policies reflect public opinion in the United States?
How are these policies perceived by our traditional allies in Western Europe, and our allies and enemies in the Middle East?
Is the response to terrorism as “clear cut” as these some of these policies suggest?
Finally, are policies of this nature reflection of the positions of the Democratic and Republican parties or political rhetoric?
