(WTOV9) – Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says the United States and its allies are winning some battles against terrorism — but may be losing the broader war against Islamic extremism. Rumsfeld spoke at an international security conference in Singapore before traveling to Bangladesh , a mostly Muslim nation that has denounced terrorism. He said he fears “zealots and despots” may be turning out newly trained terrorists faster than the United States can capture or kill them. And he said it’s “quite clear” that “we do not have a coherent approach to this.” Rumsfeld said thwarting terrorists isn’t enough. He said ways must be found to persuade young Muslims that “the way of the future is through education and opportunity, not through suicide and terrorism.”
