Bombing our way to freedom

In a generally fair report on Iraqi insurgent Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, ABC 4 Corners features a telling comment by former CIA analyst Michael Scheuer:

Probably what’s going to turn out is that the Iraq venture has been the biggest disaster for Israeli security in the history of Israel because, eventually, over time, we’ll see al-Qaeda going into Jordan, into Syria, into Lebanon and eventually be on the borders of Israel to some extent.

This hasn’t stopped the Jewish state advocating military action against Iran. Nobody said the Israeli establishment were particularly smart.
