I've got to say that I think you are in error to classify Bush's rejection of the Taliban's offer as an "blunder" - it was intentional and all the consequences of that action were also intended.

The truth of all of Bush's "blunders" is far more closely related to extortion profiteering and organized crime than to proper conduct of a war - Bush's "incompetence" is merely his cover. Never forget: even his own mother calls him, "stupid like a fox."
