    Okay, I haven't even read through this thread but I just HAVE to post this..

    Obama DID NOT kill him..He should not get credit and I don't feel like he really did anything just like he hasn't done ANYTHING for our country..I am not an obama fan and I sure as H*** didn't vote for him..

    And another thing..

    I am soo glad bin laden is dead but, I think that this is only going to create another problem. Just because the leader died doesn't mean that the group goes away. They just replace him with the next idiot that is going to try to "get back" at the US..and now that he is dead I say bring our military home! I don't think we are responsible for fixing other country's problems when we have SO many here. I think we need to work on our own country before we try to fix others. We might be the land of the free but we have to be the most screwed up country too..

    Gah..I get a little worked up over this..and I don't like that Obama is getting a huge pat on the back that is not his victory to claim, he just happened to be in office when it happened..

    Drum, no one would have "gotten" Bin Ladin if Obama had not given the go ahead. And he did it only after thoroughly being involved in the planning stage.

    Like Obama, or not, at least give him some credit for this at least. Even Rush Limbaugh said "Thank God for president Obama". Go figure.....

    I see your point and I respect it but, he wouldn't have had any clue to Bin Laden's whereabouts, plans, people, anything without our military over there..He didn't do it..Someone else did and he said "ok, go"..

    I started watching the news again after I was acused of sticking my head in the sand and hiding from it . Turns out there is about a million different stories as to what actually happened. Why is that not surprising? Oh, and the President will NOT be releasing the photos. SHOCKING!:roll:

    I don't want to stick my nose into something it just doesn't belong in right now but, personally I'm glad he's gone. He killed over 3,000 people. I had what was a big brother to me killed in the 9/11 attacks and now people from all the 9/11 families have the peace that this terrorist is dead. Now all the people who lost their lives can finally rest in peace.

    Does anyone else find it funny how the whole Obama Birth Cert scam came up and than Osama was found and killed?

    Either way I think Osama being dead is going to cause more problems than we even are aware of at this point but, as it was pointed out before if we would have buried him, than that would have given people a shrine to go to. He doesn't deserve that.

    I am soo glad bin laden is dead yes, thank God for His righteous judgments! But,... Just because the leader died doesn't mean that the group goes away. ...bring our military home! I don't think we are responsible for fixing other country's problems when we have SO many here....we have to be the most screwed up country too..Amen!

    While I agree with most of this, I would have to disagree with the bolded bart.

    We are not only over there to help them fix their problems. Al Queda is very much our problem, the 9/11 attacks being a prefect example. That didn't happen because we were over there trying to fix their problems. They hate America, and will never STOP hateing America. So we are over there trying to stop them from being able to do this again. And I'm sad to admit that that might be a very long time before that will happen.

    Slightly off topic but thank you bsms for posting those links about the Plame incident. For whatever reason a few days ago (before Osama was killed), that popped in my head and as I didn't follow the story as it happened, it got my curiosity up. I just haven't found time to do some research.

    And whilst Obama didn't pull the trigger, he did have to sort through all the ramifications of that action and take the decision on how to ultimately act. I believe it was the right and a courageous decision on his part. I don't agree with everything he has done whilst in office, but on this I agree.

    COSTELLO: Rush Limbaugh came out with a line saying, "Thank God for President Obama," but he meant it very sarcastically. If you take a look his website he actually meant, "Congratulations, Mr. President, for Continuing the Bush Anti-Terror Policy."

    RUSH: So a reporter who works this beat got the story correct...So we concluded that these people had to want to believe this so badly that they did. They wanted to believe "Thank God for Obama," that only Obama was capable of this.

    "The military are a bunch of warmongering hawks. They were going to go in and obliterate the place!" only Obama, Obama alone knew the right way to do this...So he [Costello] listened. So he did listen. He called H.R. Back and said, "Sounds to me like there's a little sarcasm here," and H.R. Said, "Well, don't quote me, but I don't think I could disagree with you on that."


    For myself, I don't see this as a political issue. Any President - Clinton, Bush or Obama, was going to take a chance to nail the guy responsible for 911. I loathe Obama, but I'm glad he got it right on this. Club Gitmo is still operating, we'll have military tribunals, and Bin Laden has finally been killed.

    There are evil men who need to be stopped, and I'm glad the US military stopped Bin Laden. The pity is that there are a great many evil people out there who will never reconcile themselves to freedom...so the war against terror goes on.

    Does anyone realize that as soon as he was killed that, that's the only thing on the news. I think Obama is doing this to cover something up.
