Reasons for Optimism

A series at ShrinkWrapped:

In response to some posts which seemed unduly pessimistic, a reader and frequent commenter on my site suggested that there are actually many reasons to believe we are currently winning the War against Islamic fascism (though he doesn't particularly like that appellation.) He volunteered to put together his thoughts on the matter and succeeded far beyond my expectations. Owen Johnson is a retired career intelligence analyst and knows how to construct a position. His note to me is long and I am going to present it in several parts.
I am blessed with the ability to read fast and to retain a great deal of what I read and I have not seen, in the almost 5 years since 9/11 "changed everything", such a clear exposition of who we are fighting, what we are fighting, and how we are fighting, as what Owen so cogently put together. This is as good a summary as I have seen of the various issues involved in the war.
