Senator Joseph Lieberman’s essay on the role of Syria as al Qaeda’s travel agent is today’s must-read:

Responsible air carriers should be asked to stop flights into Damascus International, as long as it remains the main terminal of international terror. Despite its use by al Qaeda and Hezbollah terrorists, the airport continues to be serviced by many major non-U.S. carriers, including Alitalia, Air France, and British Airways.

Next time people talk about negotiating with hostile regimes, maybe we should remember that airport. I’m sure they’ll stop terrorist travel if we ask them.
