For all those deniers who still maintain we "crushed the Taliban" why then is it they were able to mount an assassination attempt against Dick Cheney? Maybe they were simply out Quayle hunting and got Cheney instead arriving at Bagram Air Base. At any rate it was a miss and, instead of shooting some poor old lawyer in the face they killed a bunch of local Afghanis. It was a shame. A shame that they killed so many civilians and a shame that they missed ....their quail.
