<quoted text> I am just guessing here but maybe Bush something you didn't? Maybe he knew tha Bin Laden was in that compound and the Pakistanis were keeping an eye on him. That killing him and making him a martyr would be the worse thing to do. That perhaps Obama knew the same thing and killed him for political reasons.
But you're too stupid to even consider that!
If that was true, then why did Bush invade Afghanistan. I thought it was to get Bon Laden.

But you say Bush did not want get Bin Laden.

So,why aten't you running down the street screaming " OMG OMG cover up! Cover up" whrn Bush must have lied to invade Afghanistan???

Well???

Ryan Fogle Detained By Russia, Accused Of Spying For C.I.A.

MOSCOW -- Russia's security services say they have caught a U.S. diplomat who they claim is a CIA agent in a red-handed attempt to recruit a Russian agent.

Ryan Fogle, a third secretary at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, was carrying special technical equipment, disguises, written instructions and a large sum of money when he was detained overnight, Russia's Federal Security Service said in a statement Tuesday.

Fogle was later handed over to U.S. Embassy officials, according to the FSB, the successor agency of the Soviet-era KGB.

And WHY were troops (NOT just US troops either-KIDDO) even over there?
Answer: Because SADDAM the INSANE had INVADED Kuwait, and Kuwait REQUESTED the help of OTHER nations (NOT just the US as well as had DENIED the offer of "help" in doing so, of one Usuma bin_laden) in pushing the invading forces BACK to where they originated from!
GET A CLUE-especially before you try and call anyone else out on FACTS!
This is what I call ignorance at it's finest! The bottom line was," the conflict of the USA & Bin Laden started before Clinton even walked through the WH doors. This falls right under the Republican playbook. Befriend the enemy of your enemy when it suits our interest, then cry bloody murder when the enemy of our enemy turns out to be a radical jihadist terrorist. Saddam Hussein, Moammar Gadhafi, Osama bin Laden, & the list goes on. How many times must this country go through the same thing before they learn? The trending theme, all of them were befriended by republicans, only to later be stabbed in the back by republicans for doing exactly the same thing they were doing & allowed to do by Reagan when they were friends, as long as it benefits Americas interest. Fund them, train them, arm them, then find a reason to go to war with them because, after all, war is profitable! The Republican model!

A man who police said had a second job as an “armed security officer” was being investigated after he accidentally shot a student Rangeview High School in Aurora, Colorado on Monday.

According to KMGH-TV, a school employee who also has a second job as a security officer had offered a student a ride home at the end of the day. The gun discharged, hitting the student in the leg, when the school employee tried to secure his weapon in the glove box of the car.

The man took the student to a nearby hospital, where he was rushed into surgery with a “significant injury,” police said. The injuries were not expected to be fatal.

It was not immediately clear what type of work the man did for the school, but police said that he was not a teacher.

Report: IRS D.C. office investigated applications for non-profit status

Both Democrats and Republicans are calling for an investigation of what happened, though Republicans appear more interested in making it a political issue than Democrats. The Republican Governors' Association, for example, called on the president to name a special prosecutor.

I'm sure this won't happen, but hopefully Congressional investigators will remember the reason the IRS is involved in investigating these groups in the first place is that under current law, the IRS—not the Federal Elections Commission—is responsible for regulating these groups. There's no justification for targeting them on the basis of political affiliation, but on the other hand, it's not like the IRS should abdicate its responsibility to enforce the law.

I'm sure conservatives would love a scenario where the IRS simply rubber-stamped the tax-exempt status applications of every conservative group, but if the IRS did that, what would the point be of having laws in the first place? Moreover, the idea that conservatives are the only groups that have ever been singled out is ridiculous—liberals were targeted for political reasons during the Bush years.

Bottom-line: This is a serious issue, but if conservatives approach it as a partisan game, it'll turn into another Benghazi probe, and quickly.

Pablo Pantoja, who previously served as the State Director of Florida Hispanic Outreach for the Republican National Committee, has defected to the Democratic Party.
Citing the GOP's "culture of intolerance," Pantoja confirmed his party change in an email sent Monday to Florida Nation. Pantoja also drew reference to a much-maligned dissertation from the Heritage Foundation's Jason Richwine that sought to discourage non-whites from immigrating to the United States on the basis that those groups have lower IQs. Richwine resigned from his post at Heritage last week.
"I have wondered before about the seemingly harsh undertones about immigrants and others," Pantoja wrote. "Look no further; a well-known organization recently confirms the intolerance of that which seems different or strange to them."

The well-known church, All Saints Episcopal in Pasadena, became a bit of a cause célèbre on the left after the IRS threatened to revoke the church’s tax-exempt status over an anti-Iraq War sermon the Sunday before the 2004 election.“Jesus [would say],‘Mr. President, your doctrine of preemptive war is a failed doctrine,’” rector George Regas said from the dais.

The church, which said progressive activism was in its “DNA,” hired a powerful Washington lawyer and enlisted the help of Schiff, who met with the commissioner of the IRS twice and called for a Government Accountability Office investigation, saying the IRS audit violated the First Amendment and was unduly targeting a political opponent of the Bush administration.“My client is very concerned that the close coordination undertaken by the IRS allowed partisan political concerns to direct the course of the All Saints examination,” church attorney Marcus Owens, who is widely considered one of the country’s leading experts on this area of the law, said at the time. In 2007, the IRS closed the case, decreeing that the church violated rules preventing political intervention, but it did not revoke its nonprofit status.

And while All Saints came under the gun, conservative churches across the country were helping to mobilize voters for Bush with little oversight. In 2006, citing the precedent of All Saints,“a group of religious leaders accused the Internal Revenue Service yesterday of playing politics by ignoring its complaint that two large churches in Ohio are engaging in what it says are political activities, in violation of the tax code,” the New York Times reported at the time. The churches essentially campaigned for a Republican gubernatorial candidate, they alleged, and even flew him on one of their planes.
