    You did ask what I would have done. Yes, that is what we should have done, but didn't. That's most unfortunate.

    Did t he Obama administration find OBL all on its own?
    It would seem so. None of the previous administrations seem to have been able to find him. If the policies of the Bush administration were responsible for having found him it seems to me that he would have been found a lot sooner.

    But, let's suppose you're right, and he had already been found by the Bush administration three years before he was taken out. The decision to actually do the deed was made by t he CIC in office at the time, the same CIC who has been accused of being soft on the "war on terror."

    While Obama hasn't been t he best president, there are many things that he could be criticized for, it seems to me that being soft on terror is not one of them.

    Using your own standard what is your proof of this?

    You are making a fundamental mistake here IMHO. No one, here let me repeat....NO ONE said that Bush found OBL. The assertion being made is that intel gathered, and policies put into place by the Bush administration, and carried forward by the Obama administration all contributed to finding OBL's whereabouts. Please, let's get that straight.

    But, let's suppose you're right, and he had already been found by the Bush administration three years before he was taken out...

    OH....MY.....GOD! I am not saying that the Bush administration 'found OBL'....I am saying that the intel gathered contributed, and the policies put in place and carried forward by Obama found OBL.

    The decision to actually do the deed was made by t he CIC in office at the time, the same CIC who has been accused of being soft on the "war on terror."
    Tell me what potential President wouldn't have given the order to go given the same circumstances Repub, or Demo.

    While Obama hasn't been t he best president, there are many things that he could be criticized for, it seems to me that being soft on terror is not one of them.

    Leadership is.
    Oh.

    Well, if you're saying that policies didn't change a whole lot due to the election of Obama, then we're in agreement. If policies put into place by the Bush Administration, then carried on by the Obama Administration were successful in finding Bin Laden, then you do have a point.

    And so do I. The anti Obama assertion that he is "soft on terror" is just wrong.

    To me, he looks a lot like my avatar, in fact, Bush III, or perhaps Obambush.

    Maybe to some....But without the ability to lead.

    Yet another similarity between the two presidents.

    And this is a United States invasion. The token assistance from France and the UK is window dressing. Obama is using the NATO cover to deflect criticism of more war by making it appear as "international" as possible.

    Hillary is a fascist warmonger.

    "Since the US State Department literally is directing armies of protesters and their armed counterparts in the streets from Tunisia to Syria, from Belarus to Moscow, and from Myanmar to Bangkok and Malaysia, it would indeed make sense to reconfigure it into something more suitable to oversee warfare rather than diplomacy. It is the US State Department from which organizations like the National Endowment for Democracy and its myriad of seditious-sowing NGOs stem from and go forth manipulating foreign governments rather than dealing with them as equal sovereign states, a long running theme pursued throughout the upper echelons of the "globocratic" elite."
