The Value of Anxiety   

I've lost the source for the following paragraph, it may have been the New York Post.

Kerry & Co. denounce Bush for running a campaign of fear. But
we could have used a bit more fear when Bill Clinton failed
to prepare us for the threat of terror. If only he had been
more afraid of terror, he might have given the go-ahead to
the 1998 CIA plan to kidnap Osama bin Laden or not tipped off
the Pakistanis — and through them bin Laden — to our cruise
missile attack in 1998 or given the green light to fire
missiles at Osama in 1999 when the CIA said we had the best
chance ever to get him.

A little fear back then would have helped a great deal
