You keep hedging far too much on 'our knowledge of the future'. Just because I know the out come of a battle, does not mean that I cannot consider a decision to be a bad one with out that future knowledge. Leaders make bad decisions all the time, and critics can see the mistake without the knowledge of the outcome. Some bad decisions result in a lucky outcome, but that doesn't mean it was a good decision at the time.

From a tactical standpoint, there is a credible argument that disbanding the Task Force is a bad idea, or at the very least, premature. At that point of time, there is credible evidence -- without need of our 'future knowledge'.

What I was saying is ironic, is that this forum is divided simply in the view point of whether or not it was a bad decision -- which reflects the StarFleet Decision vs. Anika's position.
