    What's OC got to do with this? What proof do you have that Albright was the reason Osama wasn't there when the missiles hit?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Desert Fox was Iraq, 1998 buddy. I'm talkin Khost province, 1999.

    Edit: I admit that if you want to take someone like bin Laden out, cruise missiles probably aren't the best solution because time is too big a factor to ignore. But my point is Clinton DID try to take out OBL, even being described by Robert Oakley as being "obsessed" with Osama.

    There's no reason not to release the photo's of bin Laden's corpse. So what if it'll "inflame" some fanatics. The sun rise has the power to inflame muslim fanatics. Just tell them it rose over America before it got to them.
    Yes, and that was not Obama's image on TV last night. It was a 3-D photoshop of a Kenyan. Obama doesn't really exist.
