The New War on Terror

In the waning days of its power, the Bush administration is still expanding the scope of its pet war. Eli Lake writes:
We have entered a new phase in the war on terror. In July, according to three administration sources, the Bush administration formally gave the military new power to strike terrorist safe havens outside of Iraq and Afghanistan.
The question is, how will the next president respond? The New Republic probes the ramifications of a recent strike in Syria and their connection to potentially contradictory tenets of Obama's proposed foreign policy. (Hat tip: Andrew Sullivan)
