    Lets not forget the underwear bomber. Fortuantly even though the Al Qaeda terrorist was able to ignite the fuse, the kicker charge failed to set off the main charge.

    All threee can be linked back to Yaman.

    We'll give Obama a complete pass on the Boston Marathon terrorist bombings because they may have been Islamist terrorist they didn't have connections to Al Qaeda.

    All of these happened on U.S. soil under Obama's watch.
    You must think I'm partisan. I said: "Both presidents done what they could to stop the spread of Al Qaeda" The way you were writing it you had them in one area.

    Re: the terrorist who shot up the recruiting center...I also stand corrected. He was an actual terrorist with actual connections to al-qaeda. Thank goodness he was an incompetent goon.
    Right, right. And until it's found Hasan was paying monthly dues and had an Al Qaeda photo ID he won't be with you or the President either.

    Here's a few of his words he said at his trail: ""Evidence from this trial will only show one side. I was on the wrong side but I switched sides," Hasan."

    Luckily, BHO has been clear who these enemies are.

    But he also pointed out his friends.
    It endangers our friends and our partners along Syria’s borders, including Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq.

    Not all these countries may share his enthusiasm but he has clarified the position.

    So noted.

    It was President Clinton who made the decision that Al Qaeda wasn't a national security issue but a law enforcement issue. President G.W. Bush inherited Clinton's terrorist policies. On 9-11-01 G.W. Bush changed Clinton's policy and Al Qaeda became a military national security issue.

    The buck stopped at Bush's desk and Bush didn't spend eight years blaming Clinton's failed anti terrorist policies. Probably because unlike the current President, Bush didn't suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

    It comes down to that.
    Really? Bush went to war at least by looks out of acts of aggression towards the US.
    Name one American that is involved in the Syrian civil war.
