The 9/11 Panel: Political not Defense Strategy

Right now I am watching the 9/11 commission and, strategically, this exercise is extremely foolish. Sun Tzu says politicians should stay of our war, for a host of reasons, mostly to do with timing because all competitive situations are highly dynamic, changing moment to moment, as contestants adjust to each other’s moves. This is a perfect example. This retrospective of what was done against pre-9/11 against terrorism is completely irrelevant to current situations. Position post-9/11-Afghanistan-Iraq have completely changed. This focus on the past is designed only to divide (that is, weaken) us and can serves no useful strategic purpose. No useful military purpose in the fight against terrorism, I should say. It is, instead, being used for political purposes by those such as Richard Clark.
