Wizbang's "Global War on Terror: Where We Stand"

The bloggers at Wizbang now have available a pdf version of "The Global War On Terror: Where We Stand". Read it; it should get wide circulation.

Wizbang's writers have created a readable synopsis of where we stand in Iraq and on the War on Terror generally, and how we got there. The authors are clear in their defense of Bush's policies to date.

In 14 pages, this document presents a clear primer for for Kerry supporters who want to understand the other side before voting or for Bush supporters who want an organized way of thinking about Bush's strategy.

It's less intellectual but a faster read than Norman Podhoretz's "World War IV: How It Started, What It Means, and Why We Have to Win" from Commentary (called "must reading for anyone concerned with the direction America takes in the battle against radical Islamists" by National Review). Both pieces make the case for Bush's wartime leadership: Podhoretz in a highbrow, intellectually groundbreaking fashion and Wizbang in a shorter fashion more accessible to a casual audience.
