The Terrorists' Election Strategy? Take 2
A few days ago I suggested that terrorists might "[w]ithhold attacks on the U.S. until after November 2, to distract Americans -- enough of them anyway -- from the war on terror. That would divert attention from Bush's (rightful) strength as a war leader and toward the economy, where Bush (wrongly) seems to be vulnerable."
Here's another possibility: Terrorists might stage a spectacular attack in the U.S. and claim that it's retribution for the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Such a claim would be cynical, of course, but it would probably swing the election to Kerrry.
