Burning Bush

Illustration by Bob Aul"It's because of the influence of [neo-conservatives] on the president that Mr. Bush may have 'overreacted' to the threat of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups." Bush's preoccupation with terrorism means "we are maybe not paying enough attention to other problems in the world that have nothing to do with terrorism but are really significant."

—Former national security adviser Brent Scowcroft, in a Sept. 6New York Observer profile.
