Hereâ€™s one way the Bush administration can improve security at home and be more effective in Iraq â€” work to engage the Muslim American mainstream.
Major U.S. Muslim groups complain that the administration hasnâ€™t done enough to involve them in anti-terrorist work. Theyâ€™re willing. They just havenâ€™t been asked in a significant way by top leaders.
Former presidential candidate Gen. Wesley Clark recently offered a good idea : President Bush should call for 10,000 Muslim Americans to help counter jihadist threats at home and serve as much-needed interpreters in Iraq. What do we have to lose, except a war?
