To the Editor:
   President George W. Bush was a war president by choice. He disdained to lead a broad international coalition to apprehend the criminals who had attacked the world trade center and the pentagon. President Barack Obama inherited two wars.  He has told us that "war" is an unhelpful descriptor of our struggle against terrorists. but time is running. If he doesn't quickly  reformulate our effort in Afghanistan as a law-enforcement effort to eliminate Al Qaeda, the war there will stick to him as surely as Vietnam stuck to Dick Nixon.
