RE: EX-Gitmo Prisoners Return to Fight
Face it -- I doubt if Bin Laden himself could have imagined the incredible level of success he achieved with the 9/11 attack. Things couldn't be going much better for him if he were actually in the White House calling the shots himself. The U.S. predictably and rightfully attacks Afghanistan, fails to find Bin Laden, then inexplicable goes from world leader to world thug by engaging in an essentially unilateral invasion of a non-combatant sovereign nation in the heart of the Middle East (as Bin Laden predicted), and lo and behold, it happens to be Bin Laden's arch enemy, the infidel dog Saddam, instead of continuing to oppose terrorism and search for Bin Laden. We ignore the wishes of our allies in the area, the wishes of the U.N., and the Geneva convention, distancing ourselves further from the role of world leader.
Once an enemy dictates your behavior, that enemy has won the battle, if not the war. So far, Bin Laden has scored slam dunk after slam dunk.
