NBC's Andrea Mitchell, on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show over the
weekend, claimed that the United States' wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have not
helped in the fight against terrorism, going as far as to say "They've hurt,"
and "we have inspired more Jihadis against us." Mitchell also played defense for
Barack Obama on his terrorism policy as she hailed the President's recent
speeches on the issue have been "strong" and "substantive," and "he's now trying
to...take the reins and be the CEO," in the fight against al Qaeda.
