199. exactly
I cannot get past all the death and destruction the US has wrought on others (innocent others like those in the Twin Towers) since 9/11

AND importantly, I cannot get past the fact that bin Laden was "our guy." The US trained him to be destructive precisely to bring a mighty power (USSR) to its knees. OBL was once a US puppet like Saddam Hussein, Pinochet and the Shah of Iran! He is but one of a long line of figures that have wrought BLOWBACK (See Chalmers Johnsons book Blowback).

From the injustice of two Bush wars against Iraq, future bin Ladens will surely rise
