And that's a case you don't want to catch

Everything Steven Bainbridge (whom I would normally not cite to on anything but corporate law) says about the problems with the argument that “whatever else Bush has done, he should get some credit (and implicitly a lot of credit) for the fact that there hasn't been a terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11 is right on. To which I would only add: Anthrax, anthrax, anthrax. Bainbridge perhaps avoids the problem by talking about Islamofascist attacks, rather than terrorist attacks (which should hint at why I normally don't cite to him), but I don't know, and am reasonably certain Bainbrdige does not know, who was mailing anthrax.
