Ex-Army Ranger Rep. Warren Davidson: 20 数年後 9/11 we must wage war differently

Few people recall that アルカイダ was already a known threat on 9/11. They bombed America’s embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in August 1998 – while I was serving in the 75th Ranger Regiment. We were convinced we would be departing swiftly to deal a decisively fatal blow to al Qaeda in response. 残念ながら, President Bill Clinton chose not to attack them directly – one of several factors that influenced my decision to leave the Army.

に 2000, ジョージW大統領. ブッシュ campaigned for the presidency primarily on domestic issues—particularly education. あの日, President Bush, was reading to school children in Florida when he was called away to reckon with a nation that suddenly recognized we were at war. 1週間以内に, Congress authorized the use of military force in Afghanistan, the nation harboring Usama Bin Laden.

1年後, the United States invaded イラク – officially to locate weapons of mass destruction and take them from Saddam Hussein before he could distribute them to terrorists seeking to attack America.

Somewhere between invading Afghanistan and pivoting to Iraq, someone changed the mission. Our military makes hard jobs look easy every day. など, the Bush hoisted a new assignment upon them: nation building.

Some of our fellow Americans continue to chip away at the freedoms that make America unique among all nations. Congress and multiple presidents have failed to correct the emotional decisions made after 9/11.
