I guess Al Qaeda didn't think this way- they saw the US as occupiers- a enemy that had to be driven away. They didn't think we would leave on our own until we began talking about time-tables and withdrawal recently- then it seem Al Qaeda stopped fighting and began waiting- waiting to move in and take over when we leave.
And I suspect Obama even knows this- he just doesn't see an alternative- it's either that or us staying there forever. And I think this is whats driving his big push for "energy independence"- all these new laws about conversation and alternate energy- so we don't have to deal with Arab countries anymore. And this I agree with- let's get the hell out of there and let them fight among themselves instead of using us as their punching bag.
