While Republicans Attempt to Take Credit, We should all remember to Thank God for President Obama!

Watching the news shows this morning, we should all Thank God for President Obama!

I think of the comments by the Republican candidates during the last election: "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb bomb Iran." Both McCain and Palin are famous for making this statement. Can you imagine what would have happened if they were in the White House? Clearly they would have bombed Bin Laden's hideout and demolished it, destroying any clear evidence that he was there and inciting a war with Pakistan -- a nation that actually does have nuclear weapons (aka Weapons of Mass Destruction.)

Every time I look at the Middle East map I am always appalled to see that Iraq is so far away from Pakistan -- where Bin Laden has been hiding since 9/11. Sure Iraq's Saddam Hussein was a deplorable dictator (there are so many in the world) but he had nothing to do with 9/11. Since the start of the war in Iraq, we have had over 6002 American service men and women die in this so called "war on terror." That is not counting all of the innocent men women and children in the Middle East who have died in this "war on terror." And what about all the recruits al qaeda received as a result of all the destruction in these countries.

I am glad we have an intelligent, calm President in the White House. He is using his logic and technology to identify and hunt down terror leaders. There were 23 children in Bin Laden's compound. None were injured. This stealth attack truly resulted in "Mission Accomplished." When President Obama made his Bin Laden announcement, he thanked the Seals, honored our troops and the families of the troops and thanked former President Bush and the American people. His speech was truly a Leader's speech, Presidential and historic.

On the other hand, George Bush, on May 1, 2003, announced "Mission Accomplished" aboard an aircraft carrier. He jet landed onto the aircraft vs using his helicopter, to make a more dramatic landing. The Mission was NOT accomplished as the war in Iraq has continued. Bush also said Bin Laden was on the run and he wasn't concerned about him. (see video)

During the Presidential campaign, candidate Obama promised he would hunt down Bin Laden and kill him. McCain called him naive. President Obama kept his promise.

Republican pundits are on TV today attempting to give former President Bush credit for Bin Laden's demise. This is so ludicrous. They are saying torture methods enabled the identification of the Bin Laden courier and therefore President Bush deserves all the credit. This is such an innaccurate statement. In fact, the person tortured: "KSM" -- lied about the name of the courier when he was tortured. The name of the courier was actually identified via CIA investigative efforts overseas.

It was years-long, detailed, methodical investigative efforts that resulted in the identification of the courier. Then it was President Obama himself that insisted upon the Navy Seals stealth attack, using technology, training (human and dog), and skills in threading the needle to pull out Bin Laden and all of his computers and thumb drives.

Once out, they utilized facial recognition technology and DNA to confirm Bin Laden's identity, then bury him at sea. This was brilliant! Just think. There is no where for his followers to go to pay homage or to incite new terror. He's gone. Now, the world is, in fact, safer. Thanks to our Navy Seals, intelligence, logic, technology and our Great President Obama!

I find it interesting that Osama Bin Laden was killed on May 1, 2011, eight years to the day after Bush declared "Mission Accomplished." As the President honored the fallen at Ground Zero this past week, I was glad he invited President Bush to accompany him, however I am not surprised he did not attend. The two have different ideologies.

As President Obama pulls out our troops from Iraq and Afghanistan this summer, I hope ALL Americans support him.
God Bless America!
God Bless OUR President Barack Obama!

It's difficult to believe that Obama would be stupid enough to take credit for Osama's death unless he had absolute knowledge of Osama's demise or he had total control over him in a secret place of detention. Nonetheless, it doesn't take a genius to realize that the whole thing about Obama giving the order to take out Osama was a farce. Most likely Osama was already on a slab waiting to be picked up by our guys. The fact is that nine years ago Osama fled Afghanistan into Pakistan and has been hiding there successfully ever since. Our government couldn't find him until the Osama's henchmen gave up his body after he died of natural causes. How embarrassing is that? The DNA bubbamises is a feeble attempt to divert attention from the real story that Osama's people made a deal to hand over his body for the 25 million dollar reward and other considerations. Obama needed the drama because his approval ratings have been in the toilet so he staged the phony raid after receiving proof that the carcass was really Osama's. Getting rid of the body in quick time, claiming to have DNA verification, announcing that there are classified video footage and photographs and then refusing to show this so-called evidence all leads me to conclude that if they had Osama's body it was already decomposed to the extent that everyone could see that Osama had been dead for much more than a couple of hours.

I had to decide whether to post your comment. The reason: Because I see you have SPAMmed your comment across 5 pages of news and blog sites across the internet. Clearly you are attempting to discredit our President, you are calling him a Liar, and you are clearly on the side of the terrorists. How UnAmerican of you!

Your argument is plain silly. You are arguing against yourself.

Your Argument:
1. Bin Laden Not Dead: You say there is no way to prove Bin Laden is dead because we do NOT have any DNA to match against it.

2. Bin Laden IS Dead: Then you say he was already dead and you create (in your own mind) this huge, nutty scenario in which Bin Laden has been dead for years and his own people turned in his dead body over to the US for the $25M Reward.

I laughed out loud at your Fake premise. Just Imagine! His own people walked over to the CIA...knock, knock, knock.

Bin Laden Family: "Hello there. Our Leader Osama Bin Laden has died. We want to give you his dead body for the $25M reward. Will you come and pick him up?"

CIA: "Sure. OK. But you realize how embarrassing this will be for us. How about if we send in our helicopters and we will pick up his body. That way we will save face."

Bin Laden Family: "That will be fine. Please be sure to pick him up AFTER the Apprentice and bring along the $25M check."

CIA: "Sure Thing! See you Sunday."

What IS troubling is that Cheney (on Fox now) said we have a relationship with Pakistan. ($ and Military)

I wonder if Bush/Cheney would have gone into Pakistan (their friends) to retreive Bin Laden. Many people thought something fishy was going on with that relationship. (Cheney quote from his interview with FoxNews: "if we turned and walked away from Pakistan.")

It takes me back to that whole relationship Bush/Cheney had with the Bin Ladens (remember -- when no other aircraft was allowed to fly post 9-11, Bush allowed the Bin Laden family to leave the US.)

Why are they SO CONCERNED about the Bin Laden family and about Pakistan????

I recognize they have WMD and they have been a somewhat tentative ally, but given all we know now and how they have hidden Osama Bin Laden for years and years, WHY are they so concerned about stable relations with that corrupt government? Especially when they bombed the hexx out of Iraq and want to do the same to Iran? When most of the 9/11 terrorists came from Saudi Arabia.

The Republican Agenda is SOOOOO Troubling!

DEE has it right, Osama has been dead since 2001 it was all over the news in Afghan, he died of natural causes, this is another way of Obama campaigning, he will do anything to get re-elected, hence his new goal to legalize 30 million Mexicans, hey that's 30 million more votes for him.

Dee , I'm off the subject a bit but I found this intresting, Arizona Attorney General, Elmer fudd "Thomas Horne" testified before congress of the growing drug problem along the border Horne called for" the continued presence of National Guard troops along the border, more border fencing and the establishment of forward operating bases every 12 miles," just as President Obama predicted in his speech in Texas saying "All the stuff they’ve asked for, we’ve done, But, I suspect there’s going to be some that are going to move the goal posts on us one more time.They’ll now call for even more Border Patrol agents and a higher fence" is it possible that our President is a prophet?
