The Terrorists' Leftist PR Machine The notion of "loyal opposition" no longer applies. The left doesn't just have a different view of the war and the US, they are actively on the other side.

Their superficial differences notwithstanding, the commentaries that stem from the margins of the Left are marked by one common purpose: Whether they are convicting American troops for crimes they have not committed, rehabilitating Islamist bitter-enders as blameless “civilians,” heaping reflexive scorn on American “empire,” plotting their escape from U.S. “totalitarianism,” or celebrating American “defeat,” leftists are working to ensure a victory for the forces of Islamic radicalism. Leftist historian Howard Zinn, in the course of despairing at the U.S. victory in Fallujah, gave expression to the warped worldview that informs these efforts in a recent column. “The war in Fallujah cannot be won,” Zinn wrote. “It should not be won.” With slogans like that, the antiwar Left should brace itself for many more cruel months ahead.
