Strategically positioned by the coffee yet astrategically positioned near the recycling bin, my perch here in room 325 of the Russell Senate Office Building captures the crossroads America faces in the war on terrorism. Luckily, the New America Foundation, a Washington think tank, has an all-day program set up to discuss the way forward against a mutating Al Qaeda threat. I’ll be here, drinking coffee, avoiding detritus, and posting about the proceedings for The Streak. But I figure there’ll be enough stuff to spread out here — hey look, Peter Bergen and Steve Coll are already in the building. I LIVE FOR THIS.

Update: Check out this SWJ piece on al-Qaeda, which I’ll try to read in between programs.
