You make some excellent points in your commentary.
The one thing you failed to mention though, was just what an appropriate approach would be. One might postulate that instead of invading and operating by rules of engagement which are much more suited to the NCAA we might have been more aggressive and destructive, fighting a "real war." Another possibility might be to stand back and simply utterly destroy any place which harbored terrorists (lots of collateral damage that way but far fewer American lives at risk and much less costly). Of course, each has a set of overlapping drawbacks but being mired in a decade-long occupation is not one of them.
I am not playing "gotcha" here and would appreciate your opinion.
