Will Obama Now Admit That George Bush's Tough Stance In the War on Terror Was Right?

It was, however, President Bush who led our nation through the aftermath of 9/11 by declaring an unequivocal ‘War on Terror;’ making and honoring every commitment to support it despite the political consequences; and keeping our country safe until the day he left office. Not surprisingly, reports now suggest that the intelligence which helped seal bin Laden’s fate was rooted in enhanced interrogation work and results that took place during President Bush’s administration.

Here is just one paragraph from this story, thoughts on this? (If you have time read full story.)

  • Doubt it. Barry is the biggest narcissistic egomaniac I've ever seen. I don't see him admitting to anyone doing anything unless it directly benefits him,and that wouldn't.

  • America works best when we all give up the pissing contest.


     LOL^ You'd never know that looking at the questions posted here over the last 1.5 days. Seriously, there are so many here who are spinning their wheels because BO was the CIC, the boss, when this event occurred. Discount and spin, the goal. IMO, GW=BO...they are one and the same, puppets, and their policies and approaches quite similar-

  • No. I don't see that Obamas stance has been any different. We're still engaged in the same wars with no end in sight, still carrying out anti-terrorism activities, policies haven't really changed...

  • 'And there is certainly a strong oil and natural gas issue that has been connected to Afghanistan for a long time, not because the country has especially notable resources (it doesn’t), but because of its geographic location. It’s just that I think about the relationship between war and oil a little differently than a lot of people do." CONT

  • ". Afghanistan, a landlocked country, has essentially negligible petrochemical resources, but there are vast oil and natural gas fields in Central Asia to the north, notably in Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Azerbaijan. Getting those fuels to American, Western European, and even Asian markets requires vast pipelines."

    Many believe Afghanistan is the easiest route to getting to the commodity-

    I do not care who was in. The mission was the right choice and Bin laden is DEAD. But both deserve credit in the final outcome.

  • Osama Bin Laden Dead: Dick Cheney Credits Obama


    Of course he did, sweet. Sitting presidents get the credit. The only problem with this particular president is he doesn't want any credit except the credit he sees as positive. Any adverse credit he deflects and blames on others even very past presidents. If he would accept the good with the bad it would be easier to take. Now, I don't know what kind of problems he had committing to the mission. I am just glad he wore his 'big boy' pants to work on Sun. Now, what will he allow to be done with the information he now has? Will he allow the military to finish the job and come home having won a war?

  • Nope. High ranking prisoners kept OVER SEAS in an unknown CIA prison let to OBL whereabouts. Gitmo is not the only prison where terrorists are kept.

  • I'm amused with how upset the pubs are that their precious Bush isn't getting any credit. Sorry peeps, Bush wasn't the CIC on Sunday and only PRESIDENT Obama was privy to the mission that started 9 months ago.
    The "war on terror" is not for 1 president to claim, it's been an ongoing issue that the U.S. has enemies long before Obama or either of the Bush's.
