Another interesting quote from the Wall Street Journal (free registration required):
"The danger here is less to America--which will
continue to protect itself in any case--than it is to
Europe. The phony outrage over American anti-terror
practices will only make it harder for European
governments to take the actions required to stop
terror on their soil--witness French paralysis in the
wake of the recent riots.
More dangerous for the longer term, the Continent's
preening anti-Americanism has also been duly noted on
this side of the Atlantic. Europeans should worry that
their moral hauteur may well be repaid by American
popular opinion the next time they call on the Yanks
to put down one of their homegrown fascists."
