64 Nancy Shaw As the evidence mounts, so too does a looming sense of doubt about the viability of the government’s strategy to picture itself as the beacon in a world of darkness and evil. Inherent in the effort to contain threat and justify the force required to do so is the necessity of painting a picture of an enemy so threatening and fearsome that the utmost force must be deployed to obliterate it.
