Or how about Casino Royale where he loses Le chrifre, loses the money, and loses the girl! I have no problem with 007 being fallible.
Yes, he loses le Chiffre, but he captures Mr. White, a higher-up. I call that win.
Vesper continued to serve MI6 while compromised, so her death is no big loss from the brass' POV.
Bond also saves the airliner in CR
, so for a brand-new 00 apparently being the first one to seriously investigate a massive criminal organization under rather unique circumstances, I'd say he does fairly well there.
The real question being why Quantum was so unknown to MI6 in the first place.
