Mission Unaccomplished

Haven't worked up the courage to look at the news. Judging from my social media, it's all about the WH gatecrashers, Tiger Woods and Sarah Palin. Don't want to read that stuff, much less talk about it. So far, the only real news I've seen is about this new Senate report on Afghanistan. Infuriating and depressing.
"Removing the al-Qaeda leader from the battlefield eight years ago would not have eliminated the worldwide extremist threat," the report says. "But the decisions that opened the door for his escape to Pakistan allowed bin Laden to emerge as a potent symbolic figure who continues to attract a steady flow of money and inspire fanatics worldwide. The failure to finish the job represents a lost opportunity that forever altered the course of the conflict in Afghanistan and the future of international terrorism."
Hundreds of thousands of people died because of these idiots and all the media wants to talk about is celebrity sex and grifters. No wonder this country is such a mess.

Seeing the obscene profits reaped by the war criminals' military industrial enablers and by the mercenaries, I just don't think there's any question why ObL was allowed to run free.

Normally not even this cynic is that cynical, but in truth, there is much truth to that.

Big Brother needed the bearded Goldstein and Little George needed his own bearded menace. Al Qaeda without a face doesn't fit those Orwellian hate sessions.

I've suspected the same. I put nothing past the last administration. And I'm losing confidence that Obama is able or willing to fix it.
