Here Come the Terrorists. Again

Here Come the Terrorists. Again by Philip Giraldi for Strategic-Culture The search for new enemies will continue no matter who is president or which party dominates congress, Phil Giraldi writes. President Joe Biden is being praised in some circles because he finally ended the war in Afghanistan that in all likelihood should never have begun. President George W.
