6. Unfortunately, it is not always so easy to separate all citizens from the smaller sub-group of

"evildoers."

We bombed Afghanistan for allegedly harboring Osama, even as we admitted (claimed?) there were many "sleeper cells" withing the US and we ourselves had tried to chase Osama with lots of fancy technology not available to Afghanistan and we still lost him.

I don't think the people of Afghanistan got to vote on harboring Osama, though. But we held them accountable.

Bottom line: Even if it is not fair, we've been answering for the actions of the USG at least since 911 and may well continue to do so. And maybe, because we do vote, and do stand by, it is for us to answer.
