More anti-liberal commentary: Paul Kruman's latest column is wacko. Among other unfounded accusations, it contains the following:
After 9/11, terrorism could no longer be ignored, and the military conducted a successful campaign against Al Qaeda's Taliban hosts. But the failure to commit sufficient U.S. forces allowed Osama bin Laden to escape.
Krugman intimates that this is part of a larger reluctance by the Bush administration to fight terrorism.
Is there any real evidence at all that the reason Osama escaped is because there weren't enough troops on the ground in Afghanistan? And that Bush could have easily committed more troops and chose not to?
