    This entire action has been a fiasco from the start. The 9/11 perpetrators were and still are criminals and should have been treated thusly, instead of the crazy, immoral, wasting of lives, treasure and good will incurred by the detours we have sought over the last 8 years. We might take a page from Greg Mortensen’s Three Cups of Tea. It is the massive funding from Saudi resources that is fueling Al Queda and the Taliban and there wanton abuse of the madrassas system. Cut off the Saudi money and the beast will shrivel.
