    A few months ago, Barak Obama said he would strike and kill Al Qaeda cells hiding in Pakistan if we had actionable intelligence, with or without the "permission" of the Pakistani government.

    Republicans went bat shit crazy, and said Obama was naive, and it would be dangerous to "bomb" or "attack" pakistan.

    Obama was right. The CIA just did what Obama said would be his policy...they killed a senior al qaeda leader hiding in pakistan, without the permission of the Pakistani government.

    Obama was right. Obama: stronger on terrorism. Republicans: we should ask permission from the pakistani government for us to kill the people who attacked us on 9/11.

    SO ....what you're really saying is that the tactics of the BUSH ADMINISTRATION are working and that Obama agrees with them.....and you note McCain and some Republicans have some reservations about running attacks without notifying the Pakistani government....

    About time you recognize that fact.....


    You say:::
    "Republicans went bat shit crazy, and said Obama was naive, and it would be dangerous to "bomb" or "attack" pakistan.???"
    ----------------
    WTF ?? Bombing or attacking Pakistan would be crazy...they have been our allies to some degree in this fight....who would advocate attacking Pakistan???

    Was Obama right when he voted against timetables, then right before he announced his candiacy for President he voted for a firm deadline? Which time was he right? Also you shouldn't have any problem at all of us bombing any of our allies right? I mean if the British Muslim community is plotting a terror attack against the US then you wouldn't have any reservations bombing the Ape shit out of them right?

    do you not think that Britain would be capable of responding to such actionable intelligence itself? LOL

    Pakistan sure wasn't.

    And you have it turned around. He voted against a firm deadline, and voted FOR timetables with benchmarks. Two different things.

    who would attack Barack Obama for saying that he would act independently on actionable intelligence if Pakistan was unable or unwilling?

    Oh...why that would be the republicans!:rofl:

    Just like the London bombings right? I believe Pakistan has arrested more terrorist based on intelligence than Britian right?

    No deadline and a timetable is directly related, my friend.

    Seems funny to say the strike was without consent... when they clearly consent to drones in their airspace, drone with hellfire missiles. Unless Pakistan thinks they won't be fired in their territory, they gave permission.

    And if violating another nation's sovereignty is ok if you KNOW there is a target there you want to kill, then you're saying to other nations - invade our airspace if you can, and kill whomever you feel should be killed - we respect that sort of thing.
