    I can not belive that President Barack Obama can go on national TV, and appear to be
    boasting about the capture and death of Osama Bin Laden,and acting as he should be given credit for Bin Ladens death, when he is the President that
    wants to close Guantanamo Bay, and he wants enhanced interrogation techniques abolished.

    These were things that the previous Bush administration initiated. And this is what led to the capture and termination of Osama Bin Laden.

    George W. Bush , and his administration is the reason why Osama Bin Laden was captured and eventually killed. Not Barack Obama.!!

    Perhaps were are too involved in credit and blame. Let's take things as they happen. There's even controversy as exactly how much credit should be given Obama or the the Defense Generals and Secretary of State. Then the intelligence from previous administrations.

    So why bother with any of it all all?

    Let us be grateful the deed is done. And thank the real heroes. The service men and women.

    You god damned fools can't get it through your head that getting Bin Laden was a ten year feat that required due diligence by TWO Presidents and their respective support personnel?

    You know, I wanted to give Bush credit. But it turns out, he just isn't interested. How do I know? He told us many times and disbanded the CIA unit that was supposed to get Bin Laden.

    If Bush refused to accept any credit, shouldn't you follow his wishes? Unless you are calling him a "liar". Why give credit to a "liar"?

    They were given the credit they were due by the people who aren't partisan enough to ignore that alot of the Previous administrations policies led up to this. President Obama gets the credit he deserves for his part. As does everyone else down to the intelligence agents and the Seals.

    It's an American victory. No point making it another partisan bickerfest. I think that may be why Obama has already started to lose the bump.

    That's not going to fly, unless you count a bowling ball being thrown out of 50 story building flying as it plunges down to the ground.

    In 2005, Bush had planned a daring snatch and grab raid of al-Zawahiri and others in North Waziristan. But at the last minute, Rumsfeld aborted the raid, in part, because Bush didn't want to ruffle feathers in Islamabad.
