“Osama bin Laden, who believed that only the most virtuous had the right to rule over the community, was undone by his love of violence. He pushed it too far, as al Qaida affiliates started killing in Muslim lands. The war in Iraq was bin Laden’s great moral undoing. Iraq was supposed to be where al Qaida and other ‘good Muslims’ broke the American back. Instead the carnage there, carried in all its gore by Arabic satellite channels, produced a backlash. Blowing up hospitals, mosques, and shrines—even Shiite ones—became too ghastly to sublimate into an acceptable war against the Americans.”
