"Nobody talked about attacking Pakistan," Obama said after McCain accused the Illinois senator of wanting to announce an invasion. "If the United States has al Qaeda, bin Laden, top-level lieutenants in our sights, and Pakistan is unable or unwilling to act, then we should take them out." - Barack Obama 09/28/2008I wonder how the Right will attack President Obama over this successful Operation. The Most Important Operation since the 9/11 attacks occurred under President Bush.
Sean Hannity, Dana Perino, World Nut Daily, R. Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Free Republic, Ralph Peters, Charles Krauthammer, Mitt Romney, and every ignorant Tea bagger conservative’s blog have proclaimed President Obama is not fully committed to killing America’s Enemies. Again the Right is heavily invested in their tangled tapestry of fabrications and lies about Obama. Again it is a matter of faith amongst the Right. The Divine Word has been revealed, there's a Kenyan born anti-colonial, un-American, sharia lovin' man in the White House! No amount of evidence shall shake their preconceived prejudice.
So, what kind of mental gymnastics and contortions will the Right go through to justify their ignorance and malice? My best estimation is that Faux will make some slurs towards President Clinton not getting Bin Laden, every Wingnut blog will shout Waterboarding and the GOP's potential candidates will credit Bush’s torturous codpiece for laying the groundwork.
Update: And just like that, every Republican-never spent a day in uniform coward is falling over themselves to praise Bush for killing Bin Laden, because you know that’s how it really happened, even if Bush declined the Taliban's offer of Bin Laden and personally undercut the Tora Bora Operation…I can't blame them. The conservative strategy has always been to blame their failures on Liberals and take the credit for things Liberals achieve. It works. It keeps conservatives stupid and duped and voting for Republicans.
Leaving the back door open gave the rat a chance to run. - Kill Bin Laden, pg.294 by Dalton Fury
Also I've been reading Wingnut blogs for over 2 years who've been demanding there be a time limit on blaming Bush for nearly destroying America. Yet, now these same bloggers, in this case Ralph the Malcontent, are giving Bush the credit for this Operation, Inherited It from Bush?!!!
What Faux and their conservative drones will not do is recognize that President Obama’s policy towards Pakistan is largely responsible for this victory. Do you remember that for 2 and half years conservatives snidely mocked Obama for pronouncing Pakistan correctly. And then Commander Codpiece and ½ Governor Palin had this to say back in 2008;
“The only foreign policy thing I remember he said was he’s going to attack Pakistan…” George W. BushThis is an important victory. This could be the catalyst that allows Obama to extricate US from the grip of the Warmongers. Hopefully, President Obama will have the moral courage to draw down our military presence and allow the UN to take over nation-building in Afghanistan.
“Senator Obama has also advocated sending our U.S. military into Pakistan without the approval of the Pakistani government. Invading the sovereign territory of a troubled partner in the war against terrorism.” – Sarah Palin
Additionally, I wonder about that supposed “escape” of 500 Taliban in Afghanistan a month ago. It could be that a deep undercover operative was planted in the prison and the escape attempt was allowed to succeed in order that the operative could make an eyes on identification of UBL.
