A ten year old unit that hasn't done crap. Let the military task forces deal with it.

Do you mean that the unit should cut and run on it's search for Bin Laden? A re-deployment of it's assets? Or should we stop that unit, bring them back home, and find a better way to deal with Bin Laden?

This doesn't surprise me at all, because the war on was never about getting Bin Laden. The day after 9-11, Cheney and Rumsfeld were asking the pentagon to find a way to tie the attacks to Saddam Hussein. Why? Because they had planned to invade Iraq long before Bush ever stepped into the White House. They ignored Bin Laden and the Taliban until they became too much of a nuisance, and even after 9-11 happened they didn't really want to go to Afghanistan - they considered it a bump in the road on the way to getting Hussein.
They even started pulling many of our best special forces personnel out of Afghanistan in preparation of the Iraq invasion WHILE BIN LADEN WAS ESCAPING FROM TORA BORA!
