      Do I go to jail for "harboring" him?

      The Taliban did not have anything to do with 9-11.  They didn't plan it, didn't pay for it, didn't do any of the logistical work for it, had no members carrying it out, and didn't find out about until the very same time we did. And indeed the Al Qaeda camps were in portions of the country that the Afghan government barely even had any control over (and still doesn't today).

      It was precisely this sort of vengeful silliness that led to the debacles of two unnecessary wars.  

      We as a nation have learned nothing at all. Nothing.

    •  If your understanding of these issues (0+ / 0-)

      is based on info culled from fox news I can't help you.

    •  you send in the commandos, (0+ / 0-)

      acting under the authority of the police carrying out the investigation with all the backup they need, get the bad guys and leave.  You don't try to take over the whole damn country.  Kind of what Obama did. Should have been done 10 years sooner.

      Eyes on the Prize:  crime, cops, justice.

      Bin Ladin was a fucking evil mastermind.  He knew our country and guessed correctly that we would react as we did,  and furthered his goals (world-wide Jihad) immensely with our blundering heavy-handedness.

      don't always believe what you think
