This is the tragic irony of our foreign policy over the past six years. Instead of permanently destroying al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan -- where they are currently regrouping and emerging even stronger -- we decided to invade a country that did not attack us nor have the capability to attack us, thereby creating a failed state in which the new terrorists we've created can station themselves. Brilliant!
