    He seems to believe he has, or he wants us to believe he has. CBS's Lara Logan disagrees. You might remember her as the reporter that was kidnapped, beaten and raped in Egypt.

    He thinks he has. In a speech in California he said they did 3 things and things are fine

    1) He ended the war in Iraq
    2) He killed Bin Laden
    3) There in the process of ending the war in Afghanistan

    The rest is history the Obama world. In the real world it is not over. In my opinion it will never be over it can only be controlled a lot better

    The war in Iraq and Afghanistan is still following the Bush time table. BUT, obama scrapped the methodology of withdrawal so we are slowly withdrawing and leaving the Taliban and Al Quaeda in charge and more violent than ever.

    obama did not kill Bin Laden.

    The worst part is so many on the left believe this BS and the liberal media won't call him out on it. He's a liar and a threat to every American. Just look how he and his justice department have handled Brian Terry and now the debacle in Lybia.

    Obama doesn't give a flying flip about Americans, he only wants your vote. You've been successfully ORGANIZED if you vote for him.

    Has Obama tamed the Taliban and al Qaeda

    "tamed" may not be the correct word for either, but they have certainly been subdued.

    Do you really believe that?? Really?? If anything they have gotten stronger and are taking over governments in the Mid East. Keep drinking the kool-aid, you'll be dead from that drone attack soon anyway.

    How right you are. The taliban was subdued at one time. Now they are regaining their strength and numbers.

    What he tamed is the US medias reporting on the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and even Egypt! Afghanistan is shit, has always been shit and will remain that way (what we should have done was give Afghanistan a "Russian-like-beating-of-Georgia sledge hammer hit of Afghanistan, then left having them clean up the mess! Libya is in chaos and has been the way since Gaddaffi fell. That was predictable by most people (the devil we knew was 100 fold better than that devil we have now)! Egypt is bankrupt and unemployment is spiking. The reason you heard from the Obama media that the Egyptians couped Murbarak was because of the job market (like that would solve the unemployment - dumbass muslims) and now it's 100 fold worse), they will be headed towards a Syria civil war in the future. Iraq is headed back to sectarian fighting! Yet the media is mum on this. You honestly hear very little about the Syria masscrue and 10s of thousands of people have been killed. If Israel strikes terrorists to stop missile attacks, you have the media everywhere reporting inch by inch what happen, applying a double standard towards Israel.

    The media is who Obama tamed not the followers of Islam!

    The Taliban is just waiting for our troops to leave AStan.

    Of course we've already let them know just when that will be. Another blunder. This is Barry's war after all.

    Can't say I'm sorry our men and women in uniform are leaving. We've spilled enough blood and treasure in that shithole.

    The only bright spot will be Karsai getting the axe. Who knows. Perhaps he'll hang onto his head.
