Why A President Romney Would Continue Obama's Covert War

June 8, 2012

Yours truly spent 20 minutes on C-SPAN this morning trying to reconcile the almost irreconcilable: how does an administration justify and explain a new form of war--one that you can be assured a President Romney would continue -- when such a war is uniformly covert and its details are necessarily classified? Our constitutional system requires a full explanation to the American public, yet exposure will very likely jeopardize the success of these tactics.

And make no mistake: These are no longer simply tactics conducted on the side against what remains of al-Qaida. This is the way America conducts war today, a whole new kind of warfare that, as National Journal first revealed a year ago, is a logical response to the over-extension of U.S. military power under the last administration. It is almost certain to be with us for years to come, under both Democratic and Republican presidents. So how do we talk about it?
