Nowhere in the piece he explains who (apart from the military contractors) benefits from garrisoning the world. Access to natural resources, cheap labor, commodities markets.

For the average American, is it all a complete waste? I doubt it. And if it isn't, what's the bottom line?

What has "bin Laden" gained? Homeless Americans, is that his goal? The military bases aren't going to shut down, McObomba will build more and more, and bomb more and more. The benefactors of 911 are the people who get those trillions of dollars in war spending.
