The Right Mission ~ Not Iraq

    It was during the Regan/Bush era that the CIA trained and equipped Osama bin Laden to fight against the Soviet invaders in Afghanistan. Al-Qaeda’s roots can be traced back to Osama around the time of the Soviet withdrawal. Since then there has been no Al-Qaeda attacks in the former Soviet Union. No one will argue that Osama’s attack was justified, but strangely Mr. Bush seems to have forgotten who really attacked us on 9/11. With George Bush Jr. preoccupation with Iraq, Osama has been allowed to run free.     With the mission in Iraq declared accomplished by Mr. Bush it would seem like it is time to withdrawal from Iraq and focus on Osama and his branch of Al-Qaeda.
