US State Department says Bush has made us less safe

They were a little more diplomatic about it than that, of course — not everyone there is a John Bolton. What they have done is issue a "Worldwide Caution", which tells Americans overseas to watch themselves:
U.S. citizens are strongly encouraged to maintain a high level of vigilance, be aware of local events, and take the appropriate steps to bolster their personal security.
And when they say "worldwide", they mean it.
Current information suggests that al-Qa’ida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions, including Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
So I guess that non-US North America, South America, Antarctica, Australia, and assorted small islands are, for now, low risk. But this administration still has a few years, so they may yet succeed in making the entire world pissed off at America.
