    Of course Obama would fight in Afghanistan and capture Osama, just like we capture Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

    We are going in Iraq for nothing and look at the other country's that do fight in Afghanistan. We should be over there fighting Afghanistan, not other country's fighting for us.

    I think you're confusing Al-Qaeda with the Taliban.

    The perps directly responsible were killed that day. Al-Qaeda were in dozens of countries. The money to fund them came from Saudi Arabia through Pakistan, and even OBL seemed to flow freely into Pakistan.

    Why we chose to move an entire army into AFG make almost as little sense as the Iraq invasion.

    You're still not going to prove that, are you? Why bother with the facts, when you're version of the events sounds much better. Right?

    Suppose after the Oklahoma City bombing, Tim McVeigh had camped out with a cult. They willingly gave him refuge and refused to turn him over to the police. Wouldn't you consider them to be culpable as well?

    Although actually, even this analogy doesn't go far enough. In 2001, al-Qaeda were not GUESTS of the Taliban. Al-Qaeda provided financial backing for the Taliban; they had much more power behind-the-scenes than the Taliban did.

    The living people most directly responsible were in Afghanistan. Furthermore, the governments of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan cooperated with the United States.
