9/11 and All That

A former Osama bin Laden associate reports that for bin Laden and much of the rest of the al-Qaida leadership the strong U.S. response after the 9/11 attacks was a complete surprise. In fact, Zawahiri, for one, dismissing the possibility of a serious ands sustained response, actually laughed. "What happened after the 11th of September was beyond their imagination."

And to think that if a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling about the vote counting in Florida during the election of 2000 had gone the other way, bin Laden and Zawahiri might very probably have been exactly right.
