- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody 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.

We're dealing with master Satanists here. The fact that there's no evidence proves that it's true.
I seriously doubt that the info laid dormant waiting on Obama to revive it.
Also, I suspect that these sorts of things take time. There's mountains of evidence to wade through--who know how much will turn out to be false--to find what's useful.
But, if you have some evidence that the Bush Admin sat on this info somehow, rather than let the Intelligence Community do their job, please share it.
I may be wrong.
There are only two possible explanations:
1) He did not have sufficient intelligence on OBL's whereabouts, because, in fact, the "enhanced interrogation techniques" failed to live up to what he was told.
2) KSM and the other terrorists did break and tell all, but bush ignored it and just sat there.
Take your pick
