September 15, 2011 Did we lose a genuine opportunity to nip the 9/11 treat in the bud by attacking comprehensively in Afghanistan, or were things genuinely up in the air? Masood (Tajik) would not have been able to control Pashtun tribes as a leader of Afghanistan Did we know enough about what Osama was planning to do to take a more aggressive posture, vis-à-vis his band of warriors in the south? What would that have consisted of? o We knew he spent part of the time in Tarnart (?) farm o And the people who they would be using, would have been those people who would have been our allies when the Mujahadeen were driving the Soviets out of the country How could we have been more aggressive? o Predator drones would have helped to pin down his location o Keep in mind that operating in the heart of Pashtun country, with mulhumard (?) being unwilling to turn over Osama…if we failed, what would the implications had been (reverberations in the muslim world) ?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
