Bin Laden is Barrack Hussein Obama's re-election ticket. His execution violated everything left wing liberalism espouses. What an enema.

Seems like you'd be interested in who the REAL culprits are. THESE family members are still looking for answers:

What message are you trying to send by posting out of context quotes?

Are you suggesting that priorities never change? Are you suggesting that there is some method to eliminate every extremist on earth? Are you suggesting that new threats don't emerge?

It sounds to me like that is what your pathetic collection of quotes is trying to suggest holistically.

To that end, my response is that you are a brainwashed idiot. Welocme to the real world. Things change all the time here and there is no way to force everyone to get along.

Our military doesn't fight "home" games; we only fight "away" games.

Speaking of "games," you boys are expendable pawns. How does that make you feel?

Out of context? Then you must have the "correct" ones? Why would the priority of capturing or killing Osama Bin Laden, change? No I'm not suggesting there is ANY method to exterminate every extremist. New threats emerge every day, a lot orchestrated by Bin Laden. "Brainwashed Idiot"? You're the one in the sandbox, not me. "There is no way to force everyone to get along", Isn't that what you're trying to do? We shouldn't be fighting ANY games in the middle east period, as my cousin found out the hard way(1981-2005).

Is that your explanation for how 19 smallish men armed with box-cutters pulled off a two-hour long attack on 9/11, including a successful strike on our nation's military headquarters almost an hour and a half into the attack, and our multi-trillion dollar military apparently succeeded in defending absolutely nothing?

Who really cares what George W. Bush thinks? He did a terrible job as President. Why don't the media ask the families of 9/11 how they feel about Bin Laden being dead? That means a lot more than a past Republican President's opinion. Do you really think he would give credit to President Obama? NO REPUBLICAN will give credit to President Obama, they are to worried about THEIR PARTY POLITICS! God Bless America!
