ABSTRACT
President George W.Bush launched a global war on terrorism, going after al Qaeda, the Taliban, and others who harbor terrorists. The State Department says the number of significant terrorist attacks worldwide hit a record high in 2003--not counting attacks on U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. Democratic nominee John Kerry calls for better use of intelligence and law enforcement, but would also enlarge the Army by 40,000 and double the special forces. The Army is stretched thin because of Iraq, but officials insist that counterterrorism cooperation is improving. New allies have joined the fight. Afghanistan is more peaceful than expected, but al Qaeda and the Taliban remain active. Polls show that the global image of America has nosedived over the past four years. The top job for public diplomacy has remained vacant for much of the administration. Both candidates agree Iraq must be stabilized.
