"The original al-Qaeda is defeated"
Posted by: McQ on Friday, September 12, 2008

Now I'm not the one making that declaration. Nor is the Bush administration. And certainly not MNFI.

Here, read the whole thing:
On the Seventh Anniversary of September 11: Time to Declare the original al-Qaeda Defeated

The original al-Qaeda is defeated.

It is a dangerous thing for an analyst to say, because obviously radical Muslim extremists may at some point set off some more bombs and then everyone will point fingers and say how wrong I was.

So let me be very clear that I do not mean that radical Muslim extremism has ceased to exist or that there will never be another bombing at their hands.

I mean the original al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda as a historical, concrete movement centered on Usama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, with the mujahideen who fought in Afghanistan in the 1980s at their core. Al-Qaeda, the 55th Brigade of the Army of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan under the Taliban. That al-Qaeda. The 5,000 fighters and operatives or whatever number they amounted to.

That original al-Qaeda has been defeated.
Any guess?

Check it out.

If it's true, then the war launched against al Qaeda and prosecuted vigorously in both Iraq and Afghanistan would largely have to be called "successful" wouldn't it? If you don't believe that, read this.

But, but, that means that....

No. No matter how much I want to taunt a certain dweeb from the far Northeast, I’m not going to do it.

I smell a trap. If AQ is defeated, then that would mean there’s nobody to fight, right? (At least, that’s what our friends on the left would say.) And if there’s no one to fight, then we need to bring the troops home right now.

The only way they’d admit that Bush did something right would be to try to pin a greater wrong on him.

Defeated? Maybe. Beaten? No.
Napoleon was defeated and forced into exile in 1814.
Sometimes defeating an enemy is not enough, you have to kill them.

Steverino,

I agree. Otherwise, I can’t imagine anything other than overmedication that would lead a bigtime lib to admit that we’ve beaten AQ.

A-MEN!

I thought we were losing this war.

Just how is it possible to lose to a dead guy ?

Last time I checked, the Dems were claiming Iraq caused us to take our eye off of AQ.

I like the sound of it, but coming from master ass-hat juan cole, I have my doubts.
