To kill the one we suspect to be the leader of the terrorists is a gross error of strategy. It makes me doubt that bin Laden was so important, and after Obama signed the NDAA bill, I begin to doubt that he has anything to do with 9/11.
To get rid of terrorism, we have to apply the rule of laws, even and especially with the terrorists.
I really begin to think that the war on terrorism is as much fear selling business than the war on drugs. Since Nixon, we are governed by professional liars.

Is the 24 your age? A war on terrorism means a war on terrorism and not the rule of law on terrorism. Obviously you did not endure even a scratch on 9/11 so in your mind try putting yourself or your loved ones atop the WTC on 9/11 or in one of the 4 hijacked aircraft and you'll understand the meaning of the last straw, the meaning of reality and the meaning of war.

Glad he did, now if he would only admit that his business style cost/benefit analysis of the situation would have meant that he would never even found Bin Laden because he wouldn't have put the resources into it, that would be truly honorable.

Yepper the suddenly gung ho yes we can crowd bypassed Senator John McCain who was a pilot, POW and retired from the US Navy with years of experience.
Instead the yes we can crowd selected a self-serving community organizer with ZERO military experience and a long time close pal of bill ayers the communist/terrorist with a rap sheet a mile long and an individual who designed a bomb that blew up killing his girlfriend and two comrades. That bomb was intended for US Soldiers stationed at Fort Dix NJ and who would be at a dance with civilians.
The lord marshal b. h. obama's association with bill ayers would have prevented him from ever holding any national security clearance but thanks to the voting yes we can crowd obama/ayers were given a green light...despicable.

Open mouth insert foot...wait, but that's what Romney does every day.

perhaps his aides brought up some facts that yes, Carter did indeed give the order for seals to rescue the iranian hostages, that ended up in trajedy. and although the right likes to think that their savior Reagan brought home the hostages, they were released when Jimmy Carter was still the President.

What will etch-a-sketch do today?

you got that right...i'm still embarrassed and perplexed that the voters of this country would elect a muslim friendly political rookie, with a history of hanging with radicals, tax dodgers, perverts, terrorists, ponytailed ex hippies, and enviro=whacks, could get elected to the highest position in the land....and just a few years after the muslims almost brought us to our knees.

>>>>>OBAMA SHOULD NOT BE CREDITED BECAUSE HE SAID HE WANTED TO USE THAT AS A CAMPAIGN TOOL that he got Bin Laden, and most importantly in the way he presented with no full faCts of details as related to why unarmed Bin Laden was burnt at sea.<<<<<

>>>>>It said the way of his DEALING WITH THE raid was sloppy, being not as a commander-in-chief, WITH NO detail visions of such task , WHICH would include circumstances and situations such that UNARMED Bin Laden could be ended up caught ALIVE for valuable intelligence, with substance facts that would be deserving.

Listen = Since Laden was unarmed IN THIS CASE , if Obama did not catch Bin Laden and showed him being handcuffed that people can see his photos going in the court of usa --THAT IS what people want to SEE --- AND IF NOT ONLY THEN, NEGATIVE DOUBTS of Obama WOULD BE always there.<<<<<

THE FOLLOWING IS from Toipix:_:_______

Former Governor of Massachusetts and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Tuesday that he would have ordered the raid to kill Osama Bin Laden.

Do you think President Obama will win re-election in 2012?
Yes. No one can beat him.
No. A Republican will win.

Mitt Romney is hitting back at President Obama for suggesting he wouldn't have had the guts to order the raid that killed terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden.

The likely Republican presidential nominee insisted on CBS' "This Morning" Tuesday that he would have taken the same action — and Obama is simply trying to make the anniversary of Bin Laden's death into a "politically divisive event."

"I think that credit for the decision is entirely appropriate," said Romney, who was accompanied by his wife, Ann. "But attacking me is the wrong course."

The former Massachusetts governor and Obama have been sparring since the president's re-election team released a campaign video last week questioning whether Romney would have ordered the attack.

In it, former President Bill Clinton praises Obama for taking "the harder, more honorable path" by choosing to take down Bin Laden last year, on May 1. The ad then asks, "Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?"

The video points out a comment Romney made in April 2007, in which the former Massachusetts governor said it wasn't "worth moving heaven and earth, spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person."

"There are plenty of differences between President Obama and myself, but let's not make up ones based on, well he might not have done this," Romney told CBS.“It's disappointing and it's unfortunate.”

Meanwhile, Ann Romney tried to tamp down the perception that her husband is too buttoned up to relate to voters.

"I still look at him as the boy that I met in high school when he was playing all the jokes and really just being crazy, pretty crazy," she said, playfully grabbing her husband by the shoulders.

"And so there's this wild and crazy man inside of there just waiting to come out!" she exclaimed.

Attention Stew Pid!!! The hostages were released because Iran clearly feared the fact Reagan was coming and understood the milquetoast carter was going. You look as dumb as carter sitting beside the fat head michael moore DNC 2008.

Yes indeed...how could it be possible for the lord marshal b. h. obama to have been a leading member of Rev. Wright's church for 20 years and to be all OK with taking out bin laden the very man who was responsible for Rev. Wright telling his congregation following 9/11 that "the chickens have come home to roost?" Obviously bin laden is the one who sent those chickens home and if you're angry at America as is obama et al then having to take out bin laden would be perhaps like taking out a chicken lickin relative.

As opposed to the big O.....
Opposed Guantanamo as a candidate saying he would shut it down... but is still open

As a candidate was against military tribunals for terror suspects yet 2011 reversed his decision.

In 2007 he said “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent"'
Yet in 2011 ordered military action against Libia...

In 2009 he pledged to move forward with the third missle defense site in Poland and Czek.
6 months later, surrendered to Russian demands and nixed the sites.

Voted against increasing the debt limit; then supported raising it.

Campaigned against the Bush tax cuts; then extended all of them.

Promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term; then proposed trillion dollar deficits.

Vowed the unmployment rate weould be below 8% if his stimulus was passed; but then it broke 10%.

Promised shovel ready jobs; then admitted they weren’t shovel ready.

Said if you like your health plan you can keep it; but then threw seniors off Medicare Plus and employers are now saying they’ll dump people onto the public exchange.

Promised to have health care negotiations on live TV, but then reversed himself.

Indicated Bush violated the Constitution; then the big O carried out warrantless wiretaps, indefinite detentions, secret renditions, quadrupled drone attacks.

Voted against the Patriot Act, but then supported its extension.

Said lobbyists wouldn’t work in the White House; then gave them waivers to work there.

Vowed to take public financing for his 2008 campaign; then refused public financing when he realized he would receive more money without it.

And lets not forget the big O chastizing Hillary for using 9/11 for political purposes then HE uses the killing of Bin Laden to prop up his image.....

These are just a FEW of the Big O's flip flops..... imagine what they will be if (very big IF) he gets reelected, and doesnt have to worry about being reelected....

Mitt Romney would have order the killing of Osama Bin laden eight month before Obama because unlike Obama, Romney is not friend of the enemies of America. The Mozlem Brother obsessed Obama never agreed to show the body of Osama Bin Laden which is a Mozlem Brother hero in Pakistan because it was bad news for the Mozlem Brother and their terrorist organizations that Obama respects. This explains why Obama waited eight months after the CIA found his hiding location before deciding to kill Bin Laden and make it his re-election campaign which could lead to Bin Laden finding another hiding place and disappear. It was President Bush and his intensive interrogation techniques that brought to the finding the hiding place of Bin Laden on Pakistan that was hiding him close to its military training base. Obama who admitted time and again that he was born to communist Mozlem Brother father of the Luo Tribe of Kenya and who became scholar of the Quran in Indonesia Madrassa keep denying the fact that there is radical Mozlem Brother terrorists of Taliban that kill our US troops. Obama proved that he is the friend of the Jihadist Mozlem brother regimes led by Iran and with their terrorist organizations that are enemies of America and he seeks to hide their relentless Jihadist efforts to kill Americans and destroy America.

another lie. Warren Christopher arranged for their release. The jihadists waited for the change in power to insult the president. A patriot cares about results not petty insults.

Nope, nope...Ronnie sent word that as soon as he was sworn in, we would start bombing their infrastructure, power plants, water distilleries, military facilities, etc. They knew Jimmy was too much of a wuss, but they were not sure about Ronnie.

John McCain was a crash dummy (he crashed 5 planes in less than a year). He was also a snitching POW. NOw he's an old out of touch bitter loon.

John McCain's early military career began when he was commissioned an ensign and started two and a half years of training at Pensacola to become a naval aviator.[14] While there, he earned a reputation as a partying man.[7] He completed flight school in 1960, and became a naval pilot of ground-attack aircraft, assigned to A-1 Skyraider squadrons[15] aboard the aircraft carriers USS Intrepid and USS Enterprise[16] in the Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas.[17] McCain began as a sub-par flier[17] who was at times careless and reckless;[18] during the early-to-mid 1960s, the planes he was flying crashed twice and once collided with power lines, but he received no major injuries

Romney can't make a decision relative to policy let alone a major decision like going in to kill Bin Laden.

Romney is a spinless draft dodging coward. A Chickenhawk who talks the talk but would NEVER walk the walk. I would hate relying on that self serving wimp to have my back in battle.

All navy fliers are fearless and party animals, how else do you think they would be crazy enough to strap 40,000 lbs of thrust to their ass and at 200 knots try to land on a small moving target at night that was pitching and swaying all over the ocean? Could you do it? If you could, do you think you might be just a little bit cocky?

ummm, the VERY best I have seen at anything they do usually are sober. serious individuals.

I bet the astros who went to the moon were not party animals.

We are currently a PARTY ANIMAL culture, maybe that is where you get this idea.
