We're (sort of) going home

So we are really and truly going to leave our "six week" stint in Afghanistan. Well not quite, but honesty isn't this government's strong point.

It may be an opportune time to point out that more than ten months after the World Trade Center Bin Laden is still at large, and we're not quite sure where he is. Does anyone think that the war on Afghanistan has been succesful in its main aim - to publicly capture or kill Bin Laden and publicly dismantle Al Qaeda? Would waiting a few more weeks for the Taliban to squeeze out Bin Laden really have been such a bad idea?
