We had a chance to decimate them (and probably capture the leader) in Afghanistan, if we closed the borders, and cleaned the $h*t.
However, W was too busy thinking about the oil and Iraq and messed things up. It is like you see a dozen roaches in the middle of your room, and you take a broom and hit them in the middle. You kill two or three, the rest disappears... That is what W and co. did -- distroyed a few of their training camps in Afghanistan, then they created many more all over the world. When are they and their followers going to admit that???
