Big surprise, Eman jumps in to protect the use of slurs. Calling a black man "boy" is a racist slur. Everyone know this.
If Obama doesn't want to be called "boy", then he should act like a man and accept responsibility for his failures.

Wow, if Bin Laden was hiding in the Sudan again, Flack says we would still have invaded Afghanistan.
Terrorists have camps in a wide range of countries & remain there with little government hassle. Why Afghanistan??? There were camps in North Africa, Yemen, Sudan, etc.
You people are wacked out.
The last I looked we are doing just that. Not to the extent of Afghanistan or Iraq but we are there. Scale of force to threat is a good scale to have. Besides the last three are not governments that support terrorism, I don't think. They are states with terrorism in them. You reading comprehension does you in again.

I need some personal advise from anyone who is retired and receiving SS.

Do you have to wait two months after your birth date and turning 62 for the first SS check to arrive?

It was explained to me that you have to be one month "eligible" and then the check is one month behind that.

I always thought you were officially retired upon turning 62, SS checks and all, which isn't really the case if you have to work two more months.

Afghanistan had no viable government in 2001. The Taliban was the government and harbored the terrorists who conducted the 9/11 attack.
The only mistake made by Bush in Afghanistan was not using nuclear weapons to kill every one of the bastards.
Tell it to DBWriter aka Colonel Flagg he is insisting Afghanistan attacked the U.S. and a full scale invasion of Iraq was necessary because there was one terrorist there who by all accounts was already dead at the hands of Saddam. He's making all this stuff up not me, take it up with him. You'd think he worked for the Bush administration.

No difference. Women in combat are a joke because they lack the physical ability and put the men in danger because of a perceived need to protect them.
Helicopter pilots, Medivac nurses and more.

Women are not serving in the infantry/artillery/armored you stupid fk__but those exposed to combat, as Jessica Lynch was, should be awarded for their contributions through pay and promotion.

Pay attention mutt__or STFU.

<quoted text>I dunno, maybe it's better to raise a child by the mother as they are the nurturers and caregivers, look at the Momrmons and their multiple wives.

Culture decides the whole family unit but who is to say what's best?
I think for the most part money/finances is more the issue and not necessarily being raised by one parent.
Homer is partially correct in that families headed by an unwed mother are way more likely to be living in poverty.

However, male children need their father in the house to show them how to be men instead of wimps.

This decision will kill more servicemen than would otherwise be killed.

Especially since free birth control is how Obama got reelected.

The 9/11 attack originated from within Afghanistan with no opposition from whatever government existed.

You strike me as an anti-women type of guy. Do you find yourself pining away for the 1950's when a woman knew her place?

White House emails obtained by ABC News and other organizations last week that purportedly detailed extensive editing of talking points Obama officials used in the aftermath of the Bengahzi, Libya attacks appear to have been misquoted or mischaracterized to emphasize the administration's focus on those talking points, according to CNN's Jake Tapper.

ABC News reported that White House Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes wrote an email dated 9/14/12 that said the State Department’s concerns about the details of the attack needed to be addressed in the final talking points. Rhodes was responding to State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, who emailed that she was concerned the talking points could damage “my building’s leadership.”

“We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation," Rhodes said, according to ABC. "We thus will work through the talking points tomorrow morning at the Deputies Committee meeting.”

CNN speculates that whoever leaked the White House emails "seemingly invented the notion" that Rhodes, a White House official, wanted State's concerns specifically addressed. Asked about the ABC report on Friday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that the only edit the administration made to the talking points was to a "non-substantive correction," changing the word "consulate" to "diplomatic post."

Carney on Tuesday accused Republicans of editing the emails in order to to serve a political agenda.

"I think the entire e-mail, the report I read showed the entire e-mail, and what it showed is Republicans who were leaking these press, these e-mails that had been shared with Congress didn't just do that, they decided to fabricate portions of an e-mail and make up portions of an e-mail in order to fit a political narrative," he said at a White House press conference.
