gravity, i think you answered your own quenstion, we might be blind sighted 6 yrs ago, but now the puzzle is all comming together, after some digging in the a library, there was a book published during the invasion of afghanstan by Soviets, but was not clear then how to tackel the problem, the thought of US making a another mistake, a major mistake was always the question, first vietnam, then UBL, The U.S trained Viet-cong on gorilla tactics against the french, then they used it against U.S, that was a mistake lingering on any senators brains, but to repeat the same mistake, knowing after the soviet invasion that UBL would be free roaming?
see also in this post: gorilla tactics
It is not clear that the person is substituting “blind sighted” for “blind sided” in this example. Were you thinking of some other acorn?
