Even though bin Laden may well be dead, his group is better off than there were at any time in the last 10 years. Once, constantly on the run with nowhere to call home, AQ has now essentially taken over the Afghan Security Forces, throwing away the efforts and sacrifices we made there these last 10 years. They also are a presence in Libya, Syria, Egypt and Iran. Besides providing Obama a photo op, what exactly was the point of announcing to the world that we killed bin laden? What was the point of pushing Mubarak aside in favor of Obama's Muslim Brotherhood?
