After 9/11 we were in a “war on terror,” fighting those who attacked us. How did it make America safer to DIVERT resources — intelligence assets, Arabic language translators, military resources, etc. — from that “war on terror” to INSTEAD fight a war against Iraq? We actually moved assets OUT of Afghanistan. We actually took troops AWAY from searching for bin Laden and al Queda, to instead participate in the invasion of Iraq! Shouldn’t we have concluded the “war on terror” before starting that other adventure? Isn’t is a basic principle of war that you don’t want to fight on two different fronts at the same time?
Tell me how invading Iraq made America safer?!
