Some good thoughts on Afghanistan -the Tora Bora Issue

Here Froggy Ruminations: 10/01/2004 - 10/31/2004 Matte Heidt of Froggyruminations does a great job of explaining some of the realities of the Global War on Terrorism in general and Kerry's Tora Bora debate mumbo jumbo in an effort to reorganize some disorderly thought processes of one of his correspondents.

Here's a good tidbit: " If you go around saying that getting UBL is the most important mission of the GWOT, then you are not only wrong, but you are foolish. The highest priority is to kill and capture operational leaders and actual terrorists in order to prevent follow on attacks on the homeland. UBL is not even part of the chain of command in AQ in his current situation, and his death or capture would not impact the operational threat against the US homeland."
