I respectfully suggest that this attack is proof that the war hasn't been won, and therefore we should not withdraw. This was an act of war, and it really is irrelevant whether the organization against which we are fighting this war is a terrorist group such as al Qaida or an enemy nation recognized as sovereign by the international community.
