Two must reads

First, George Will on the duties of a war president. Considering that Bush's ratings and influence increase every time he makes a national public statement on American goals and determination in the war on terrorism, he uses his bully pulpit far too little.

Second, Senator Mitch McConnell on Egypt. Since the Camp David Accords in 1978, Egypt has been the second-largest recipient of US aid. The net result is a better-armed Egypt that aids the Palestinian Authority in its terror against Israel, publishes anti-Semitic blood libels and exalts the Protocols of the Elders of Zion (the Tsarist forgery of the late 1800s) into a multi-part miniseries, stifles democracy, and praises suicide bombers. McConnell goes somewhat easy on Egypt, but at least he's asking some of the right questions.
