    Re: Secret Assault on Terrorism Widens on Two Continents

    Not having access to all the information the President does I supported President Bush totally 100% during the entire tenure of his leadership of this war. I was aware that President Obama has pressed forward with this effort and again support him 100% in this effort. Now, domestically I have a problem with both. However, being involved in a world war will allow me to accept some domestic policy weakness and economic strife. Those who blindly and fervently attack the administration without equal information are idiots.

    Did any of you notice that the deficit spiked right after the D's took control of the House and Senate? All realize of course that almost no money can be spent by the government unless specifically authorized by congress.

    See - secret - catching *everyone* off guard is *how* it's suppose to be done.

    Really smart - I support that!

    The LAST thing anyone should do is get on the bullhorn and announced when, where, why and how things will be pooed on.

    I'm not saying I agree with it... I'm just saying that it's not illegal.
    Of course all of this is PRESUMED.

    But, this story contains a warning that I found disturbing, too.

    We should seek that oversight is rigorous and thorough. It may make our efforts less “efficient” but it will assure that our nation's values and ideals are preserved and protected.
    Could you be any more contradictory?

    So who will step up first and admit that labeling Bush as imperialist was wrong?

    Of course, they won't, because that was DIFFERENT. Because this is OBAMA. Don't you get it? O-BA-MA. Not BUSH.
