Franks and Bush blew it, they knew were Osama was, and somehow, the two of them allowed him to get out of Afghanistan. How did that happen?
They should have had more troops on the ground.
How would 45,000 boots on the ground helped in capturing Osama?? Well obviously what we had out there to do the job was insufficient, another 45000 troops would have tripled the amount of boots on the ground to go after Osama.
Assuming that the command felt it had enough troops on the ground to capture those Al Qaeda members fleeing Tora Bora, but was incorrect, it is therefore totally logical that trippling that force would have actually accomplished the mission.
But again, Bush would not commit the Marines to killing our TRUE AND REAL KNOWN ENEMY in the war on terror, because he was already sidetracked in planning his inept war in Iraq, who had nothing to do with 9/11.
Again, Bush is a fool, he was not qualified to be president, and has proven time and time again he needs to be replaced for the safety of our planet.
Whether you look at his terrible enviromental policies, his lack of funding of no-child left behind to pat the pockets of the rich, his pathetic attempts at being a War president, his inaction in the face of threats to our nations sanctity (august 6th PDB and constant warnings from the CIA and FBI), his terrible tax cuts that the OBD has said is the #1 cause of our record deficit, his assignments of lobbyists to positions of power in our government who have made mistake after ethical mistake, cutting veterans benefits, medicare budget gaff and his pandering to big pharmaceutical companies, it is unbelievable that you or anyone else would try to defend the worst president in history.
Has he done anything right that has benefitted anyone in this country besides the rich??
