Whatever It Takes?

"We are at war. We are at war against al Qaeda," [Barack Obama] said in one of his strongest and most direct speeches about the threat to the United States.

"We will do whatever it takes to defeat them."
Whatever it takes?

How about firing Eric Holder or at least putting the attorney general in his place and reverting to trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and any other "suspects" in military tribunals?

Indeed: how about using waterboarding to get information out of the "suspects" on Al Qaeda's — no, not (just) Al Qaeda's, militant Islam's (or Islamic militants') — future plans for terror?
