Tsunami might help in war on terrorism?

Interesting post at Outside The Beltway on this topic citing two experts in the field.

Worth a visit.

Update: The Secretary of State thinks along the same lines
Secretary of State Colin Powell said Tuesday the outpouring of American aid and humanitarian help in the region devastated by the tsunami may also help Muslim nations see the United States in a better light.

"What it does in the Muslim world, the rest of the world is giving an opportunity to see American generosity, American values in action," Powell said after meeting with Hassan Wirayuda, his Indonesian counterpart.

"America is not an anti-Islamic, anti-Muslim nation. America is a diverse society where we respect all religions," the secretary said
