From military analyst Gordon Adams:

An initial mission intended to remove the Taliban and close the al-Qaida training camps succeeded, though Osama bin Laden slipped away for another 10 years. But hubris kept the U.S. from stopping there.The mission expanded: create a modern democracy, a modern society and, above all, a modern military in a country with little history of any of those things.A new generation of U.S. officials in uniform and policymaker suits and dresses fooled the American people and themselves by lying about how well the effort was going.
