    Torture works as far as the person is a sellout. Someone sold the guy out

    That, and the fact we decided to do this UNILATERALLY.

    I give Obama props for forgoing his previously stated "principles" entirely and allowing our intelligence operations to get this job done. He and Bush should have a beer together.

    Why is everybody congratulating Bush? Was the lead established under his administration?

    Yes. In 2006 the courier that would eventually be the key to finding Osama's whereabouts was identified based on evidence collected from enemy combatants detained under Bush's leadership.

    Yes it was.

    Besides, would we have gone into that part of the world if Obama or Gore were president on 9/11, or would we have done this with the UN?

    Hey, I give Obama a lot of credit for taking the baton from Bush and keeping the game going. I know libbos are upset with Obama over his crawfishing on the war on terror, but I give him his just credit in that regard.

    I could have done with fewer "me's" and "I's" during the press conference last night, but I'm glad he had the gonads to give the okay for the special forces to act on the information.

    Which old man was that? And do you recognize how ridiculous it is that I had to ask?

    John Brennan: We Would Have Taken Osama Bin Laden Alive

    I hope this shows the coward for who he was not a god or a prophet but a evil man who would use his wife as his own human shield.
