    "The first place" is done and dusted. If those who continue to debate whose fault it is are so behind the the times that their input is of no use whatsoever. The problem facing the world today is Islamist terrorism and the best the leftists can do is to remind us that 'not all Muslims are terrorists" when the real problem, as everyone should be aware of by now, is those who are. Releasing known terrorist leaders might be part of some grand strategy but, as usual, there is no clear idea of what that strategy might be.

    The problem is that many thousands are going to suffer for his foolish decisions, all of which were political and aimed at American leftists.

    Take a look around the world Joe. Obama is the absolute least respected president in memory. This post of yours only highlights your lack of objectivity.

    I am still stunned that there are those like Joe that still believe that this is all Bush's fault, and that Obama has actually made things better. It really is delusional.

    Unlike Joe, those who would attack America and Americans do not dwell on whose fault Iraq might be. They target Americans - Republican and Democrat alike - and have been demonstrating that for decades. The same holds true for Jews.

    Prior to the beheadings they do not ask their victims if they are Democrat or Republican, a concept the Joes of the world don't seem to understand.

    It will always be Bush's war. And invading will always be the mistake that can't be undone. You cannot discuss Iraq without this recognition.

    And POW are never meant to be held forever. Either try them of crimes, or let them go.

    No, that would be Bush. Your memory is short.
