    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

    Its kinda like asking the RTF for dog advice! Lot's of good, honest, information from experienced people, with just a few loose nuts once in a while. Gotta sort through it and find who you trust.

    For example, for all things political, you should listen to what Yardley, Perry, and myself have to say, and take the rest with a grain of salt.

    Well Keith, here is another source other than Wikipedia.


    Operation Enduring Freedom began after the Taliban rejected U.S. demands made following terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Bush had called on Afghanistan's leaders to close terrorist training camps and hand over al Qaeda leaders, including Osama bin Laden. The president also demanded the return of all unjustly detained foreign nationals and the opening of terrorist training sites to U.S. inspection. When the terrorist ignored those demands, about 15 land-based bombers and 25 Navy strike aircraft from carriers launched the first strikes in Operation Enduring Freedom. In addition, U.S. and British ships and submarines launched some 50 Tomahawk missiles, then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Richard Myers reported that day.

    http://usmilitary.about.com/od/terro.../afghanann.htm

    Do you still not believe that the reason for invading Afghanistan was to capture and bring to trial Osama Bin Laden and leaders of Al Qaeda as stated in Wikipedia?

    By the way, I have no problem with the fact that we went after Bin Laden in Afghanistan. The only thing I dislike about the war in Afghanistan is that we did not follow through on capturing or killing Bin Laden. Here are a few quotes from W about Bin Laden.

    "The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."
    - G.W. Bush, 9/13/01

    "I want justice...There's an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, 'Wanted: Dead or Alive,'"
    - G.W. Bush, 9/17/01, UPI

    "...Secondly, he is not escaping us. This is a guy, who, three months ago, was in control of a county [sic]. Now he's maybe in control of a cave. He's on the run. Listen, a while ago I said to the American people, our objective is more than bin Laden. But one of the things for certain is we're going to get him running and keep him running, and bring him to justice. And that's what's happening. He's on the run, if he's running at all. So we don't know whether he's in cave with the door shut, or a cave with the door open -- we just don't know...."
    - Bush, in remarks in a Press Availablity with the Press Travel Pool,
    The Prairie Chapel Ranch, Crawford TX, 12/28/01, as reported on
    official White House site

    "I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
    - G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

    Roger, I've said it before and I'll say it again: bin Laden lives in a CAVE...he's on the run CONSTANTLY from Predators and Hellfire missiles...such is the life of the leader of al Qaeda......frankly, I care more about what BHO is going to do about bin Laden than I am what Bush 43 said...'cause I live in the NOW, not the past. Try it sometime...it might help you sell some real estate. And again, if you want to live in the past, you need to place a big 'ole helping of blame on Clinton...had he acted when he had the opportunity, it is HIGHLY unlikely that al Qaeda would have had the financing to put 20 terrorists on American soil to pull off the biggest terrorist attack in American history....not to mention the organization....

    Now we get to see what the '09 Nobel Peace Prize winner is made of...will he escalate the war like he said he would to get elected? Will he buck up and do what his military commanders tell him he should do to get the job done? Or will we be left to watch al Qaeda and the Taliban rise to a level of power that they have yet to enjoy as soon as we pull out?

    I'm sure his year and a half as a Senator and his experience as a community organizer will help him make these decisions....
