Is the Empire Winning?

Not from this angle. NyPo reports:
IRAQ: Last month, al Qaeda busted out as many as 600 terrorists — including dozens of convicted al Qaeda leaders who’d received death sentences — from two prisons near Baghdad in what appears to have been simultaneous and well-coordinated attacks. Interpol issued a security alert over their escape, warning they pose “a major threat to global security.”

US authorities suspect al Qaeda had help from inside the prisons. The Iraqi government has showed leniency for imprisoned terrorists since taking over security from US forces. Last year, for instance, Iraqi authorities pardoned a Lebanese terrorist responsible for the kidnapping, torture and murder of several American military officers. Ali Mussa Daqduq was cleared of his crimes not long after Obama agreed to turn him over to the Iraqi government instead of locking him up at Gitmo.

LIBYA: Terrorists also pulled off a massive jailbreak last month in Benghazi, where US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American security personnel were killed by al Qaeda operatives in a Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the diplomatic mission there. About 1,200 inmates — including suspected al Qaeda fighters and other Islamic militants — escaped from the Koyfiya prison and are still at large.

PAKISTAN: Also last month, Taliban fighters attacked a large prison in Dera Ismail Khan, using suicide bombers, mortars and grenades to knock out the prison’s power supply and blast through walls to free some 250 fellow terrorists.
It is a very expensive and complex operation to rule the world. Not going to happen. There is simply not enough money or men to pull it off. But do keep in mind, the more the USG gets bogged down attempting to bring rule over far off  lands, the less money and personnel are available to rein us in.
