Low Morale

According to a news report this week in the Washington Times, “A letter to terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi from a key lieutenant complains of low morale and incompetent leaders in waging war against American and Iraqi government troops in Iraq.” Morale about the war has hit a new low elsewhere–among the American people. A CNN/USAToday/Gallup poll released yesterday says that 57 percent of the public now says the war in Iraq wasn’t worth it–a drop of 7 percentage points since February. So let me get this straight: Just as it appears we have the terrorists on the run, many Americans appear ready to give up and give in to the terrorists–which is precisely what they are trying to achieve. I, for one, am glad that our commander in chief doesn’t wage war by the ever-changing polls.
