Lustick Responds to Brzezinski Op-Ed

Ian S. Lustick, author of Trapped in the War on Terror, noticed something familiar in Zbigniew
Brzezinski’s recent Washington Post editorial. In his blog, Lustick wrote:

In a long op-ed piece published in the March 25, 2007 edition of the Washington Post
former President Carter’s  National Security Adviser, Zbigniew
Brzezinski, declared war on the War on Terror in terms remarkably
similar to those I have used in Trapped in the War on Terror and similar to the arguments made by John Mueller in Overblown. . . .As this point of view stops being associated with maverick
intellectuals and begins to be articulated by well-known pundits it
will be interesting to see how long it will take before some
politicians, apart from Representative Dennis Kucinich, to overcome
their fear of acussations of having a "pre-9/11 mentality" to speak
truly about the biggest enemy we face–the War on Terror itself.
