OK, Mike McCaul didn't invoke that particular cliche, but he did manage to reference spiderwebs and wildfires.
Apparently the War on Terror is succeeding beyond anyone's wildest dreams. At least in the wildest dreams of all those War on Terror profiteers who have been making hay while the (terror) sun shines. Having terror threats increase while you're pocketing billions in profits allegedly fighting terror threats has got to be good news, at least as long as Joe Taxpayer buys into the bullshit.
Looks like the War on Terror is following the War on Drugs down the road of institutionalized idiocy. After fighting the War on Terror for over a decade we see terror threats multiplying. After fighting the War on Drugs for over four decades, drugs are cheaper, more potent, and more available than ever.
Hey, what's not to like?
JUST KEEP THOSE MONEY FAUCETS CRANKED WIDE OPEN!!!
