  • Was it really worth it?
    ketrout
    I personally do not feel that the amount of money and lives that were lost during the past 10 years was really worth it for just one man. bin Laden was only 1 man and did cause lives & property lost on 9/11, but look at the costs, Iraq, Afghan and other areas lives lost and the amount of money that we, the taxpayers, have been paying over the last 10 years! PLAIN STUPID!!

  • Osama bin Laden succeeded
    Bill Samuel
    It was an explicit goal of Osama bin Laden to bankrupt the U.S. through our response, just as he had done with the Soviet Union (when we supported him). The figures provided in the article show the success of that strategy. We fell right into his trap. He died a success, thanks to the bad judgment of the Bush and Obama Administrations, and the Congress. He was quite willing to be a martyr in this cause. The Congressional Resolution that served at the justification for the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan authorized the President to use all "necessary and appropriate force" against those whom he determined "planned, authorized, committed or aided" the September 11th attacks, or who harbored said persons or groups. With the killing of bin Laden, this mission is clearly over. Since the mission was achieved, the Obama Administration does not have legal authority to continue the war. The immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops and shutting down of all operational facilities in Afghanistan would greatly help reduce the deficit.
