You have no basis in fact to make such a statement. Bear in mind the AQ is a cellular network, even if you eliminated 90% of it there would still be intact cells who are poised to attack.

When was the AQ threat "imminent?" When was a good time to invade Afghanistan and take AQ out? Clearly, October 2001 was too late, when was the right time? 2000? 1999? What political risk would any President during these times have incurred from second-guessers? Because if AQ was disrupted substantially prior to 9/11, perhaps 9/11 doesn't happen
