    done according to law, but immoral and cooked up by a bunch of liars.

    That the AUMF has not been rescinded is evidence that the Congress is full of blood-thirsty cowards, who haven't the courage to admit they were lied to.
    We like to assume guilt leads people to change their behavior. It doesn't.  More often than not it leads to a doubling of effort to prove there was no mistake to begin with.
    Some people invaded Iraq to prove that Viet Nam would have been a win, if the military had just stayed longer.
    In a sense, letting people believe Iraq was/is a win is a safer position from a global perspective. Iraq won't be an excuse for a do-over to get it right.
    Afghanistan never had the same alure as Iraq. "Eye - rack" sort of reminds one of seeing a "rack" and taking a shot--something that fellow Broun in Georgia would appreciate. An afghan, on the other hand, is something aged grandmothers crochet. We can do without that.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
