To be honest, I don't really blame the man, although I'm devoted to the idea that the current administration is allowing the situation to erode and making us less safe. Either way, leakage was bound to happen. We're still far better off fighting them over there than playing pure defense. If al Qaeda had been allowed to continue unabated, you can't possibly believe that they would have stopped after 9/11. Instead, we disrupted, dispersed, and decapitated the organization. That's been a big part of why we've experienced as little terrorism as we have.
