Ok yes he is dead and the world is probably a better place for it. But then the question keeps ariseing that we may have been able to take him out years ago but did not. Now I would like to believe that the White House shot down the original airstrikes because they were to broad and would kill to many innocent civilians. Id like to think that they realized that an airstrike that killed civilians would be a terrible blow to support in Iraq. But I'm drawn to a conclusion more in line with the reporter who said.
"People were more obsessed with developing the coalition to overthrow Saddam
than to execute the president’s policy of preemption against terrorists,”
Which quite perfectly states how this war was never about terrorim.
