America was attacked by some fifth-rate terrorists who got lucky and America’s intelligence community was exposed as a fraud.
So, into Afghanistan we went, in search of the people who planned the attack and to topple the regime that allowed those people a safe haven.
Alas, we allowed the terrorists to escape and they’re still at large.
We’re now stuck in Afghanistan, and the rationale at the moment is that we need to stay there to prevent the bad guys from coming back again.
The bad guys? We have no idea where they are, and haven’t had any idea for years, according to the Defense Secretary.
Revenge was the mission in 2001, it’s unclear what the mission is in 2009, but the mission will go on.
