The Hunt for Bin Laden, in Numbers

Let's just pretend for the sake of this thread that Bin Laden (Tim Osman) was indeed killed last week (not in december 2001) and indeed carried out 9/11 (which according to the FBI and his own interview in october 2001 didn't).

Even then, America still fell into the (for the sake of argument) trap set up by Bin Laden.
Bin Laden: Goal is to bankrupt U.S.

"We, alongside the mujahedeen, bled Russia for 10 years until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat," bin Laden said.

"All that we have to do is to send two mujahedeen to the furthest point east to raise a piece of cloth on which is written al Qaeda, in order to make generals race there to cause America to suffer human, economic and political losses without their achieving anything of note other than some benefits for their private corporations," bin Laden said.

As part of the "bleed-until-bankruptcy plan," bin Laden cited a British estimate that it cost al Qaeda about $500,000 to carry out the attacks of September 11, 2001, an amount that he said paled in comparison with the costs incurred by the United States.

The military-industrial complex/PNAC/Bilderberg sure pulled a big one on the American people...

Yeah but it was totally worth it to maybe have killed a guy who may or may not have had something to do with some attack ten years ago.

I mean jeez, where are your priorities?

It isn't about killing "terrorists" or promoting democracy, it's about keeping the military-industrial-congressional complex running at all costs even if it's extremely inefficient and the ultimate purpose is vague, even fabricated.

To some people those trillions were well spent. It's an insider's world, a hustle.

a cost benefit analysis is something no one can deny
