Afghanistan and iraq were stupid mistakes. The bush administration simply fed off the people's desire for revenge and gave them afghanistan, which in turn let bush build a case for plundering oil rich iraq. All this was exactly what al quaeda wanted, to show the infidel empire attacking the moslem lands. End result, massive polarisation of moslem opinion against america and the creation of a whole new herd of terrorists and sympathisers across the world. America should have gone after Osama and only Osama and avoided any impression of a crusade. Special forces and spies not armies and air strikes. Right now the US is in an unwinnable 4gw situation, where all those high tech gadgets and heavily armed soldiers are completely irrelevant. So yes poor judgement and greed led to overreaction by the government and the mess we are in now.
