As a critical observer i beg you all to clarify this.

Hundreds- if not thousands were involved- in getting OBL. At the top- and there person who made it a priority- Obama.
Capturing OBL wasn't a Bush priority.
DEAL WITH FACTS.
It was a priority for Pres. Bush but he tended believe that Pakistani Army/ISI would not jeorpardise the promised US aid and give the US run around. Go and read Bush's speeches and the prize money placed on OBL's head. Obama realised that some influencial lot war playing a double game.

Bush Tells Barnes Capturing Bin Laden Is ‘Not A Top Priority Use of American Resources’

By Faiz Shakir on Sep 14, 2006 at 1:56 pm

Weekly Standard editor Fred Barnes appeared on Fox this morning to discuss his recent meeting with President Bush in the Oval Office. The key takeaway for Barnes was that “bin Laden doesn’t fit with the administration’s strategy for combating terrorism.” Barnes said that Bush told him capturing bin Laden is “not a top priority use of American resources.” Watch it.

Yes.
Do I need to explain to you that your paraphrase doesn't make my quote your paraphrase?
Obama ***did** up and get OBL.
Um, this is not a paraphrase. Read your own post, you said "Bush let OBL escape.
Obama killed him."

Alas, poor tea bagger, the rest of us are compelled to use actual facts, and the actual fact is: Bush shut down the CIA desk chasing after Bin Laden in 2006.
And the actual fact that Obama made catching OBL a #1 priority.
Let's take ten seconds to review the results:
Bush let OBL escape.
Obama killed him.
PS: putting people in jail for breaking the law is a good thing. If you are in the CIA or the NSA or the FBI and you break the law: you should be punished.
The USA did not torture people (legally) until George Bush.
How sad it is that the people who allow or promote torture are not first tortured themselves.
Please explain to me how you are not doing what I just talked about in this post. "Obama killed him". I don't think it can be any more clear cut than this. Apologize or admit you lied and move on.

AIN'T that TOO M/F bad?

Your words foot.
"Let's take ten seconds to review the results:

I said....." What I DO have a problem with is posters who say "Obama killed Osama".

Then you said
"I don't see such posts.
What I do see are dozens of posts denying Obama was chiefly responsible for tracking him to Pakistan. "
Funny how you "don't see such posts" yet YOU wrote one such post. Hypocrite.

Context, darling.

I am not the disavowing the action taken by this president to get OBL. That would be you and your fellow tea baggers.

What kind of f*king idiot is thinking the POTUS is in the helicopter, packing a nine MM, and the POTUS jumped out and gave him the head shot?

Obama made getting (oh, my, now he is using the word 'getting') OBL the *first* priority for law enforcement (et al., CIA, NSA).

George Bush decided early that capturing OSB *wasn't* a priority, including closing the CIA desk responsible for tracking him. George Bush was president when OBL escaped in ToraBora.

I guess it is YOU who needs to work on reading comprehension. I said earlier, that I have NO PROBLEM giving Obama credit for making tough decisions around hunting OBL.
You ask "What kind of f*king idiot is thinking the POTUS is in the helicopter, packing a nine MM, and the POTUS jumped out and gave him the head shot?"
My best answer is the kind of idiot who writes "Obama killed Osama".
You are just dancing now because you know you wrote a post stating EXACTLY what I was complaining about, and you said "I haven't seen any posts like that", too funny.
I have zero problem giving Obama credit for what he DID do to aid in killing OBL. In fact, its one of the few areas that I think Obama has made very good decisions.
"Put that in one sentence for me"---umm, I think you did it in 2, is that so hard?

Seal team six keeps a low profile, but one of the few people known to serve with in its ranks is Ryan Zinke a REPUBLICAN state Senator in Montana.

Howard Wasdin, a former member of Seal team six and author of the book Seal Team six, also stated on the Daily show with Jimmy Stewart that he is a Republican.

And my answer it is an idiot like yourself you is unable to give credit where credit is due, and is unable to **** follow the thread*** here.

The wise old barefoot is name calling, I guess I won.
If you would work on your reading comprehension, you would see that I AM willing to give Obama credit, but folks like you want to give credit using 3 words, and it makes you sound like an Obama sheep. "Obama killed Osama", can't get any more clear cut than that. If you don't want to sound stupid in the future, maybe you should use more than 3 words? Hell, even "Obama got Osama" sounds a little more credible. We could even up it to 4 words and actually be truthful, "Obama helped kill Osama". Man, that was hard.

... i agree, if this was bush's watch, the left would want to know the truth and more, depending on if the truth fit their agenda.... id have liked to know if he was actually in iraq or not? also when the admin knew, and what they knew about him being in paki,seeing as though biden said he knew where he was, and he ws in afgh, acc to VP.... i think the last thing the admin would want is to find out he was in iraq at one time or another... then they coudnt keep up the bush, and dems, lied chant. thoigh we have video proof that the dems lied about wmd ..... and the admin has said they dont "spike the football" but they do when they get a chance against americans who vote repub... or palin ...... or tea party..... anyone but the enemy it seems..... i say spike it on the enemy, not us americans who think who think differently from the left
