The Real Emboldenment Effect

If there is a crackpot theory about Iraq to be pushed, you can be sure Glenn Reynolds will be on the front lines of it. This go-around is about some study showing a correlation between terrorist emboldenment and access to the western press. But you know what really emboldens terrorists?

Stupid presidents, other moronic leaders who initiate and encourage retarded policies and encourage illegal wiretapping and surveillance contrary to 200+ years of U.S. moral authority... and the right-wing pundits, spinners, writers and media "analysts" who get down on their knees and provide comfort.

Islamic terrorism has had no greater friend to its growth and lethality than the Republican party, the conservative movement, and their policies.
