Peña (a senior fellow with the Coalition for a Realistic Foreign Policy and a senior fellow with George Washington U.'s Homeland Security Policy Institute) argues that the current "War on Terror" (the "un-war" because the US is not battling another nation-state) is misguided and misconceived as currently constituted. Fighting a "War on Terror" makes as much sense, says Peña (quoting Bush administration official Eliot Cohen), "as if Americans had responded to Pearl Harbor by declaring a global war on dive bombers." Instead, the US should focus on its real enemies, the non-state- sponsored and non-hierarchical al-Qaeda. Such a strategy would consist of dismantling and degrading the al-Qaeda network, establishing a new US foreign policy that does not needlessly create new al-Qaeda threats, and bolstering homeland security against future terrorist attacks.
