The Unending Tragedies of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney's Reign

Carlotta Gall: ISI Sheltered Bin Laden in Pakistan
Trillions spent invading and destroying Afghanistan and Iraq, while we allied with Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, the two worst countries in the world.  Not to mention the total failure of introspection, the total failure to make any forward-looking domestic energy or infrastructure changes, and of course, the hundreds of thousands of lives lost and lives otherwise destroyed.
The New York Times has just released an excerpt from Carlotta Gall's upcoming book "The Wrong Enemy: America in Afghanistan, 2001-2014″. Recall that Gall lived in Afghanistan and covered Afghanistan and Pakistan for the Times from 2001-2013 (Declan Walsh also covered Pakistan from inside Pakistan until he was expelled just before the election in 2013). The biggest revelation in the excerpt is that Pakistan knew about, and Pakistan's intelligence agency, the ISI, actively sheltered, Osama bin Laden when he was in hiding in Pakistan.

Re-open the 9-11 Commission, the report was a joke.
