    Who would have thought of this?

    Too bad no one in this forum ever thought that the protests from Pakistan and the claim that Obama was worried about Pakistani retaliation made no sense.

    Oh wait, I did say that.

    Osama bin Laden mission agreed in secret 10 years ago by US and Pakistan | World news | The Guardian

    For everyone who doubted me, I told you so.

    Seems like it was a reasonable deal to me. Glad President Bush made it. And I am glad President Obama had the chance to exercise our rights in the deal.

    Which is why I always qualified my statements about that with believing what the government was saying. We really do not need a serious diplomatic incident with Pakistan over bin Laden, and I doubt any US president would really risk one.

    Wow, Bush made an agreement.

    If Bush had the intel, which right wingers are saying he did.

    AND

    If Bush had the permission,

    Then the only question left

    IS

    Now wait for it.

    Let the

    ANTICI





    PATION



    Build.




    Why didn't he just go ahead and get Bin Laden?




    Oops.
