    Don't you know?


    After the 7 October 2001 launch of Operation Enduring Freedom, the United Front (Northern Alliance) worked with teams of U.S. special forces. Together, they overthrew the Taliban regime and mustered support for a new government in Afghanistan. Karzai and his group were in Quetta (Pakistan) at the time, where they began their covert operation

    (snip)

    In December 2001, political leaders gathered in Germany to agree on new leadership structures. Under the 5 December Bonn Agreement they formed an Interim Administration and named Karzai Chairman of a 29-member governing committee. He was sworn in as leader on 22 December.

    We went through the Taliban in order to get to AQ. They were just in the way.

    The President (Bush) said we had declared war on Terrorism and we would also make war on those who aided and supported terrorists or gave them sanctuary. That provided the moral excuse for destroying the Taliban.

    if it was really soo moral, we wouldn't have needed an excuse to do it.

    What exactly did that mean? How do you declare war on a strategy of war?
