Since the Somalia raid seems to have been compromised and a failure, and Obama is known to arm and encourage the vicious Islamists eating people's hearts in Syria, encourage the Islamist anarchies in Libya and Egypt and basically empower and arm Islamist terrorists worldwide, while not defending America's own Ambassadors and setting back the War on Terror to pre-9/11 status, looking into who compromised the SEAL raid in Somalia might be a good idea.

You mean the half a trillion dollar cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan we still need to budget into current and future federal budgets?
Small price to pay to get rid of them pesky WMDs or 'al Qaeda in Iraq' or their chupacabra or somethin'.

He did, dumbass.....that's why oblubmer is using them...

Special operations forces. One of the first steps taken by President Bush after Sept. 11 was to revive, fund and expand special operations forces as the dog that would hunt down and kill terrorists.
President Bush also made U.S. Special Operations a war-independent command, just like U.S. Central Command, meaning it could plan and execute its own battle plans.
The U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the Army's Delta Force and Navy’s SEAL Team 6 mostly had focused on hostage rescue. After Sept. 11, they started receiving the manpower and intelligence to become manhunters. Their biggest successes: Saddam Hussein; al Qaeda’s top Iraq terrorist, Abu Musab Zarqawi; and Osama bin Laden.
Special Ops/Intelligence. The Bush administration fused commandos with the nation’s intelligence agencies — the CIA, the National Security Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency — into task forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
President Bush also transferred a highly secretive military intelligence unit, which specialized in technical surveillance and intercepts, to the Joint Special Operations Command so that commandos and intelligence experts could work together directly.
Predator strikes. The Bush administration established Predator drone bases in Pakistan to strike at al Qaeda and Taliban extremists in that country’s frontier badlands, where U.S. ground troops cannot go.

These policies are currently used by oblubmer......the big 0 hasn't produced any "plans of his own." Read paragraph's 1 and 3.

Well Done, President Bush.
