    Is he? Many people question that.

    Well, FDR then.

    HE was even near there. He was in Malta with the other leaders of the Allied powers and ignored the threat while he had tank divisions right in North Africa.

    Yeah, let's blame him

    That's an interesting observation.

    Is there anyone alive today that can attest it was Osama bin Laden who was killed?

    No.

    You don't find that strange?

    For the record I have no closed opinion on this, but have had many hours conversation with Canadian troops who served in Kandahar.....a lot of them, who were there at the time say bin Laden was dead when he allegedly "escaped"

    It beats raping the locals.

    UN peacekeepers have also been accused of sexual abuse including child rape, gang rape, and soliciting prostitutes during peacekeeping missions in the Congo,[14] Haiti,[15][16] Liberia,[17] Sudan,[18] Burundi, and Côte d'Ivoire.[19]

    A plan? They've got a plan? Damn. I bet they cut the guy's head off twice because of that.

    Looks like his mother's video to the Invisible Sheik asking him to grant her son amnesty. Didn't work. Team Bo says they cannot verify as of yet.


    Mother of American hostage issues direct appeal to ISIS leader.....

    Shirley Sotloff, the mother of 31-year-old Steven Sotloff released a video in which she directly addresses Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, acknowledging his self-declared authority as the caliph of the Muslim world. "My son Steven is in your hands," she said. "You, the caliph, can grant amnesty. I ask you please to release my child. I ask you to use your authority to spare his life." "As a mother, I ask your justice to be merciful and not punish my son for matters he has no control over," Ms. Sotloff said, adding: "Steven has no control over the actions of the U.S. government. He is an innocent journalist."

    She also invoked Islam in a bid to persuade al-Baghdadi. "I ask you to use your authority to spare his life and to follow the example set by the Prophet Muhammad, who protected the People of the Book," she said. The New York Times reports that Sotloff's plea is likely the first time a non-Muslim has acknowledged al-Baghdadi as the leader, or caliph, of the Islamic state.....snip~

    We should take some of these terrorists in GETMO and throw them out of airplanes....

    For the West to win this war we must be as brutal as ever, however in reality we're as soft as ever...

    We have enough munitions and equipment to destroy all these terrorists yet we don't. If these terrorists had access to the tools of war that we do the would would be done, so why not hit these murderous psychopaths as hard as possible.

    Also, I will say this - anyone who goes to those terrorist hotbeds are flipping idiots asking to have their heads cut.

    I guess that anti-American speech his momma made didn't do any good.

    Wait, are you being serious?

If you were treated as a second class citizen every day and hunted by drones just because of your ethnicity and religious beliefs you'd be pretty pissed off too. What we need is understanding and peaceful, respectful engagement.
