Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright wrote: “The problem is that President Bush has reframed his initial question. Instead of simply asking others to oppose al Qaeda, he now asks them to oppose al Qaeda, support the invasion of an Arab country, and endorse the doctrine of preemption–all as part of a single package. Faced with this choice, many who staunchly oppose al Qaeda have nevertheless decided that they do not want to be ‘with’ the United States, just as some Iraqis are now making clear their opposition both to Saddam and to those who freed them from him.”
