    Am I to understand that you do not think the actions taken by out country are not a result of the President, and Government?

    Who is responsible then?....Reagan?

    Obama did indeed do what your man Bush tried to accomplish, in relatively short order...which killed someone.

    To deny the advancements thus far, simply because the President is either black or a democrat places a person in the category of ignorant, or partisan...I leave it to you to decide which.

    and obama doesn't really control the details of burning the trash at some base in bagram.

    karzai, as the elected president of Afghanistan, represents the Afghan people in foreign affairs. As such, he needs to get vocal about not supporting this bull****.

    All he's done is ask his people to calm down and then turn around and demand the soldiers who burned the koran be put on trial.

    If he, and therefore the people of Afghanistan, are not willing to do so, then I don't think the US should be willing to hand over millions in aid money. Do you?

    DEVGRU, ACE, the activity, the 160th SOAR, the CIA, to name a few. probably other clandestine units the public doesn't even know about.

    y'know, the people who actually sacrificed their sweat and blood in tracking down and killing OBL over the past decade.

    I suppose my point was that Obama gets blamed by Republicans for everything they can lay at his feet, basically he is President and thus responsible for everything from gas prices to unemployment and debt/ recession. But, those same Republicans deny credit for anything that might be seen as good. I'm sure Seal Team 6 went on that mission on a whim...you know, blowing off steam one weekend.

    I also found it petty to call my President a Temp Worker, likely this person decried foul if anyone made a negative comment when our President was Bush, and felt the office was disrespected

    This argument is ridiculous....if those helicopters would of crashed and OBL would of gotten away the President would of been seen as ineffectual and it would of been game over. The Presidents job isn't to fly around the world shooting terrorists...it's to make the hard decisions and face the consequences. You know...that whole "leadership" thing Republicans obsess about but wouldn't know it if it bit them on the ass.

    Well, it's not just Gingrich -- the political right is singing in unison as they defile Obama for this apology.

    Of course, their idea of a good time is using the huge military they created with taxpayer dollars to invade, crush, and kill other countries -- often countries with natural resources that they desire. It seems that if the other country actually fight back, then they are not playing fair . . . . .

    I can only say...that were I Commander in Chief and responsible for every member of our military, If there was ANYTHING I could do to lessen the danger they were in.....I would do it without hesitation. While I realize full well that those b!tching about the apology do so for political reasons, I would hope they would do the same as President...because if they did not I would consider them very poor Commanders.

    Honestly...it works to whip the base into a frenzy (which they were already in) but I'm pretty sure most people think criticizing someone for apologizing is ridiculous.

    Obama is the commander in chief. He gets to make the final calls and he deserves credit when he makes the right call. This was something, that if it had gone bad, could've blown up in his face, but he took that chance. It was a gutsy call and he deserves credit for it. Recognizing that fact doesn't in anyway take credit away from the soldiers who carried out the mission. Its not a zero sum game. You can applaud our troops for a job well done and applaud Obama for making the right call despite the political risks.
