Al Qaeda’s Great Escape: The Military and the Media on Terror’s Trail
Philip Smucker (au)
In a speech the week after Sept. 11, Pres. Bush announced that he wanted Osama bin Laden “dead or alive”. Two years later, bin Laden still roamed the earth as a free man, & America wondered why. Here, Smucker focuses on the major battles of Tora Bora & Operation Anaconda, & details how bin Laden & his fighters managed to slip unnoticed out of eastern Afghanistan. Impatience at the top forced a rush into a war aimed primarily at “regime change,” but it left the U.S. military largely empty-handed when it came to capturing its al Qaeda prey. The most grievous error of the ongoing campaign in Afghanistan, allowing members of al Qaeda to escape, gave them the option to regroup, thereby posing a dangerous resurgent threat to U.S. nat. security.
