Something often doesn't work

I don't understand why the administration did not publicize the findings of this study (maybe that is what they are doing now with this leak to the NYT). If they know that everyone's second favorite "something" whenever there are demands that we "do something" about a conflict in the world doesn't work, they should say so. Otherwise, we just are going to keep being the chief arms supplier of the ISISes of the future.

I also would like the CIA to study how effective using American air power is in achieving some positive result--bombing the hell out of people who are far away being the first favorite "something". Maybe they already have that study, in which case they should make the conclusions public.
