The article focuses on how U.S. President George W. Bush and his team handle the remaining years of his tenure in office, especially their efforts to deal with the interrelated problems of terrorism, proliferation and the war in Iraq. The issues will have a major impact not only on Bush's legacy but also on U.S. security. The administration of Bush has fallen far short in dealing with the danger of extremist terror. The U.S. has played a major role in unleashing the global Islamic jihad that focused on the country.
