Good News in Great War on Terror

Here's something you won't find in many newspapers, courtesy of Michael Barone. According to the Pew Global Attitudes Project, support for terrorism is declining significantly all across the Middle East (HT: Hugh Hewitt).

Remember all the sturm und drang about Rumsefeld's memo -- the one where he noted: "Today, we lack metrics to know if we are winning or losing the global war on terror. Are we capturing, killing or deterring and dissuading more terrorists every day than the madrassas and the radical clerics are recruiting, training and deploying against us?"

The Pew Global Attitude Projects results suggest that cautious optimism is in order.
