Obama caves on Osama’s cave

The drive-by media and the leaders of the national Democratic Party have claimed for four years that the War on Terror was a failure since Osama bin Laden was still at large.
The President-Elect himself campaigned for two years on the theme that the Iraq War had caused President Bush to lose focus on capturing OBL.

These slanders on the Commander in Chief and the armed forces he has led in the Iraq, Afghanistan and other theaters of the greater war on terror have issued despite no attacks on the homeland since 911, the removal of any safe haven in Afghanistan, the decimation and scattering of al Qaida, the defeat of al Qaida in Iraq and the relegation of OBL to cave-manufactured black market audio tapes.

Of late, the actions of Barack Obama have been the greatest affirmations of the national security legacy of his soon to be predecessor. The Guantanamo Bay prison that was to be immediately shut down, or at least within 100 days, now has a 12-month lease renewal, at minimum. John Conyers’ and other House Democrats’ calls for war crimes prosecutions of CIA and military interrogators that dared misplace hairs on KSM’s head are falling on deaf, if substantial ears, as Obama lauds the great and courageous work of intelligence personelle that should not have to “spend all their time looking over their shoulders.”

Of course, Obama, the democrats and the treason media have spent much of their time over the last four years causing patriots in the CIA, FBI and armed forces to have to look over their shoulders while also keeping us safe against enemies trying to get through them to us.

No apology for all that? Guess not.

And what of that living symbol of supposed Bush failure that made change essential?

In an interview Wednesday with “CBS Evening News,” President-elect Barack Obama said that regardless of whether bin Laden is alive, the U.S. must weaken the al-Qaida network to the point that it can no longer function. “My preference, obviously, would be to capture or kill him,” Obama said. “But if we have so tightened the noose that he’s in a cave somewhere and can’t even communicate with his operatives then we will meet our goal of protecting America.”

Yes, “we” have tightened the noose Obama. “We” have met the goal of protecting America.

No thanks to you and any Democrat not named Zell Miller or Joe Lieberman.

You weren’t part of that “we.”
