So Pakistan authorities take Mullah Omar into custody, and somehow this is because of Obama? Huh...
Makes you wonder why we're just now hearing about this...
Almost two months after the fact...
Makes you wonder why the story is being broken by a best selling author of political fiction (and a damn good author he is) instead of SoS Clinton...
No, sorry, this is a "biggie" for the Pakistanis.
Should have renditioned him then revealed the capture on 9/11/2010 .
Thats what GW Bush would have done.
The Jawa Report?
How come we cannot discuss this story reported on AP?
The sun rose again this morning.. THANKS OBAMA!!!!
Gosh that Obama is great!
my gawd, Obamabots make me want to gag.
so now capturing terrorist isn't for all of the Untied States, it's for the boyking to put on his resume I guess.
It depends. If Holder reads him his Miranda Rights and he ends up on trial in NYC, then its a FAIL. If they WB his ass and get the whereabouts of OBL, then I applaud the Obama admin.
Its progress of sorts. Keep grinding away at AQ and the Taliban.
Of all the so called terrorist Bush captured, only THREE were convicted through Military Tribunal and two of those were let go to return to the battlefield. That's a 33% success rate of holding on to CONVICTED TERRORISTS.
Out of all the hundreds read Miranda rights, ALL ARE IN MAX SECURITY PRISON AND NONE HAVE BEEN LET GO OR ESCAPED.
And Republicans see this as a "SUCCESS"? Seriously? THIS is a "success"?
Curiously, the same people believe we made Iraq a democratic country. That we cleaned up after Katrina. And that Bush made us more safe. Go figure.
I will believe it when it is publicly reported. If it is true, I would hesitate to give any one person credit, including Obama.
Owe Bama will probably say he's sorry and let him go shortly after somebody reads him his rights.
