After reading this I started thinking about what the article was proposing should have happened after 9/11. To be honest, yes, some of these things should have happened, but others don’t seem like they would have occurred no matter who was in office.
Quick executions? Come on, they would have had to have been moved to here in Texas and even then it would have taken at least two years to execute them.
I think the turning point in Afghanistan was the assault on Tora Bora. Not enough American troops were on the ground to capture or kill bin Laden. Instead, the fighting was left up to Afghani militia and U.S. CIA advisors. The 10 Mountain Division should have been all over the area, making sure that bin Laden did not escape.
