It looks like the Republicans are scrambling for talking points now that the Democrats proved that they are tough on national security.  Look at the rush of bloggers spewing lies trying to giving credit to former President Bush who is now sulking at his home in the suburbs of Dallas.

Obama completed the job that Bush couldn't.  Democrats won't allow history to be rewritten.

How desperate HF et al must be to keep going back to the well of personal insults. Desperate for anything to support their crumbling positions - which are wrong, were always wrong, and will be wrong for the future.

Agreed, smartdude, anyone talking that kind of trash on the local paper blogs cannot be a man. Unless a eunuch is still a man?

Thanks YellowDog-

It's nice to see that not all Americans are "Shoot first, ask questions later" types. It really was a dangerous, dark period for the U.S., what with the Bush cowboys instituting virtually martial law with the Patriot Act with the rounding up of innocent Arab-looking people, and of course the brilliant strategy of "Pre-emptive strikes." Complete lawlessness on our part. And before the peanut gallery on the right chimes in with "Liberal, chicken s••t!" let me remind them that we live in a world full of people just like us, (only a little different), and their borders mean as much to them as our do to us.

If the International courts were successful at prosecuting the Nazis after WWII, I don't understand why we suddenly decided it wasn't good enough for us anymore -- except that maybe WE have a few ex-leaders and their advisors who might fit the qualifications as suitable candidates for trial--Henry Kissinger for bombing Cambodia, and as much as he appears to have changed his stripes, and Colin Powell for lying to the United Nations-- beating his bosses drums for war just to name a couple.

'Nuff said. We got our guy. Now let's bring the troops home and protect OUR borders.

Nice to see someone else thinks we should not have done exactly what Bin Laden planned. How ridiculous to have wasted such resources and our best and brightest on such a useless war.

Why the hell not hand him over to the World Court?

In the past I have wrote I thought jb was decent.His hatred of Obama has blinded him.To call seal team 6 Obamas sacrificial lambs is just un American.Then he tries to distort what I wrote when I pointed out if that was so about the seals what about the 3000 plus that have been killed fighting over there since 2002 under Bush and Obama.It makes me wonder how they can call theirselves Patriots with that kind of hate in their hearts.

What I find interesting is just how much the search for Bin Laden cost us in money, emotional distress, and the fracturing of civil society. After 9-11 (and within five minutes we knew who flew the planes into the WTC), we discover that the mastermind of this attack is living in Afghanistan.

We demand our recent ally the Taliban hand Bin Laden over immediately. The Taliban answer, "Sure, can you show us a little evidence you might have that this is your guy?" We respond that we don't need evidence, especially from some little backwater outfit like Afghanistan.

The Taliban, recognizing the US won't budge, offer to turn Bin Laden over to an International court to stand trial. The United States refuses again and demands, "we don't need no stinkin' courts. You're either with us or agin' us buddy." (Bush-speak.)

How nice that almost ten years later we're able to break into Bin Laden's house and shoot him between the eyes (Now that's a marksman - and at night too). All at only a cost of only a trillion military dollars, the loss of over 3,000 US soldiers, the deaths of 250,000 civilians, the collapse of the Tech industry, Wall Street, and the Real Estate industry, and an additional 10 trillion dollars added to our national debt.

I don't know about you, but maybe we should have tried the International court first. It's not like this whole thing got expedited and done with quickly. What we did was empty the bank account huntin' 'em down.

I'm certain history will look back on this glorious decade as one of profound stupidity and ignorance - "The New Dark Age."
