Maybe we spend too much energy on the symbol of Osama Bin Laden and not enough on the actuators of terror--the guys with thier fingers on the triggers--the guys who actually do stuff, instead of just talking about it.
Here's one example. Ibrahim Hassan Tali al Asiri is a Saudi citizen currently assessed to be living and operating in Yemen. Couldn't we drop in and ask him a few questions? But this would mean capturing him alive, and that would put our special forces in real danger.
We have already committed hundreds of thousands of our young men and women to violent, obviously fruitless attempts to quell terrorism which place their lives in danger. We've lost over 5,000 in the Iraq/Afghanistan fiascos. We might well consider putting less than 100 troops on parallel mission in Yemen.
Why not at least bring him in for questioning?
