You just won't stop the bullchit.
OBL was in Tora Bora the CIA and the Pentagon both confirmed it in the 9/11 commission report and the commanders on the ground asked for additional troops to complete the mission and were turned down twice. There were around 2,000 U.S. troops in or near the Afghan theater at the time. At the U.S. airbase known as K2 in Uzbekistan were stationed some 1,000 soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division, whose specialty is fighting in harsh terrain. Hundreds of those soldiers had already deployed to Bagram Air Force Base, 40 miles north of Kabul. In addition, 1,200 Marines were stationed at Forward Operating Base Rhino, near Kandahar, from the last week of November onward. Brigadier General James Mattis, the commander of the Marines in the Afghan theater, reportedly asked to send his men into Tora Bora, but his request was turned down. This was mid December and Rumsfeld was busy planning the Iraq invasion.
UN resolution 1441 was being complied with, there were inspectors on the ground who had access to all of the designated sites. Bush wanted to go into Iraq and he ordered the invasion and occupation on his own because the UN would never vote in favor of it as long as Iraq was in compliance. Saddam was a murderous gangster not a religious fanatic and was not a threat to us.
The only thing OIF and OEF accomplished besides creating more terrorists and civil war, has been to create almost 100,000 casualties among our brave men and women in uniform and add between 3-4 trillion to our national debt.
I seem to forget which war you fought in. Please refresh my memory.
