    I am sure that President would have loved to kill OBL, however he had just a few more things on his mind, like fighting wars, here, and abroad.

    The proof you seek should be no further really in that Obama has kept in place ALL of these programs, including Gitmo.

    only the ig report released by holder in august, 2009

    and multi media accounts of the leveraging and cross referencing of detainees at gitmo and secret prisons in eastern europe

    and the wiretap that uncovered the phone call to al kuwaiti, the courier

    hey, don't belly slap ksm

    but, by all means, ASSASSINATE his boss

    thank you, president slasher, for NOT dismantling the anti terror policies of your predecessor, allowing our agents and seals to get ubl

    a great accomplishment, all the way around

    Agreed 100%

    What I have been seeing in the past few days is a lot a liberal hypocrisy (Both Obama and his sheep)

    To all Bush haters, the next time you criticize past decisions, first put those decisions in the context of the time. Did they make sense then, with the knowledge that was available then?

    If you haven't done that, then you really have no business using 20/20 hindsight to fault the decision. The outcome may not have turned out as expected, but if the decision was made using the best available info, and the alternatives were worse, then it wasn't a bad decision.

    The real messiah, here is Bush. Obama is just riding his coat tails and taking the credit.

    How do you figure? It might seem that way if you don't think about it. He tried hard to close GITMO for example, but lack fo congressional support hindered that and not his acceptance that it was best. Seriously, what is wrong with being honest about these things?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Again: Bin Laden was a direct threat to all of us and we did what should have been done. Period.
    We didn't pick up UBL or any others for interrogation? Practically, there was no resistance from his group...

    Why was that?

    Actually, another claim is not proof. Sorry. Can you provide actual information we got? Verifiable, documented, and equal to the example I gave?
