But the signal in the Middle East and beyond is, you can kill Americans with impunity. And that is a lesson, once learned, it’s going to cause consequences that reverberate down the years.” …

    It took Obama's aggressive drive to get him to better facilitate it at least.

    Bush just used him as a boogeyman to grip the public, wheras Obama promoted actually finding him which allowed more resources and dedication to the task.

    I mean obviously the President himself can't simply do it, and doesn't... but he creates the atmosphere and the demand that it get done by putting pressure on the agencies involved. That's where the credit lies.

    OP: You'd be brainwashed and biotchin' no matter what- I thought Obama was dangerous and violent...lol

    Actually, just right. But carry on with the 24/7 Foxbot OCD careening, dupe.
