    It was all over the major networks last night. Where have you been hiding?

    Ya considering this was reported to Congress and one can assume to the President BEFORE last night, why wasn't this news when it happened? Graham heard of it last week, we can assume the President heard of it before that.

    Hiding the news of another Nations intel apparatus planning and aiding outright attacks on US forces is unbelievable. We pay Pakistan to help us. hat should stop instantly and we should warn them that any further attacks are acts of WAR.

    Who wants to bet this President does no such thing?

    Yes we should cut all aid to Pakistan, this was obvious months ago. There can be little doubt that many highly placed Pakistanis knew that UBL was in country if not exactly where he was living. As far as Afghanistan, I say screw the ungrateful asses. Burn every poppy field on our way out of the country.

    Under Barry Hussein's direction our Military seems to enter Pakistan at will. The left was horrified at the notion that Americans were crossing into Cambodia during VietNam. You have the president using our own aircraft under NATO command to bomb and strafe their way into the capital of Libya while our troops crawl along in Afghanistan. Is there a disconnect somewhere or is it that Barry just don't give a damn about the Troops in Afghanistan?

    Why did Chamberlain go to Munich in September of 1938 and all but beg Hitler "Please Mr Hitler, no more war!"

    The night Barack Hussein Obama was elected president, the volume of Viagra flying around the newsroom at the NYT reminded people of a blizzard. A blue one. Elected president and about to win the Nobel Peace prize based on the promise he represented. How good could it get? Peace in our time. The media never gives up hope. Didn't Walter Cronkite and CBS News provide their good offices and helicopter transport to the anti Vietnam War speakers like Ed Muskie? Its always time for them to make love! Not war!

    There's a lot of shit that goes on behind the scenes that simple grunts aren't privy to. Obviously whatever was happening didn't work to our advantage so it looks like someone decided to play another card otherwise this may have never seen the light of day.
