    Clearly Obama is using this as a distraction from Benghazi. :D

    Predictable is good, right? I know I like to be able to predict when the train is coming, when the light will turn green but I wish I could predict the winning numbers to the Pick 6

    In 1998, an ABC News reporter was able to find and interview Osama Bin Laden a few months before the Kenya and Tanzania bombings.

    At the time, the CIA was having trouble finding Bin Laden, and it took them a very long time to catch up with him.

    I love how any time the Obama administration tries to walk and chew gum at the same time, they get accused of trying to distract people from "x" or "y."

    It's hilarious.

    I find it amusing that depending on the issue, you either claim the administration is incompetent or that their actions are meticulously calculated with a precise and politically driven timetable.

    It's a combination of both. They are very politically driven but often really don't think through the consequences of a move that sounds good today. This comes from a lack of leadership experience. It's not likely to change anytime soon.

    I think both sides play the same game. I will say that at least for NOW, the republicans appear to think they can win re-election by pointing out how "bad" the other guys are instead of offering actual solutions to problems.

    A waste of time and Money capturing him. They should have just put a bullet in his head and save the tax payers the expense involved in bringing him back for trial.

    Wouldn't that be capital punishment? The left is against capital punishment.

    So when they question him, do you think he is going to say he decided to kill a few Americans over a youtube video?


    That's what Hillary and Obama told us...

    When he hits US soil and they give him an attorney, the next thing he'll do is plead the 5th

    Good thing we have the beach resort of Guantanamo...

    Comes in handy for times like these.

    I guarantee you that Ahmed Abu Khatallah will never see Guantanamo.

    I also guarantee you he will be given competent legal representation. He will be advised of his rights under our Constitution. He will be given a fair trial. And I am more than reasonably confident he will be convicted by a properly seated Jury, and be sentenced appropriately to the crimes he is convicted of.

    Thats an America I can believe in. Thats an America I love. Where even those accused of the most heinous and wicked crimes are tried fairly.

    The vision some people are promoting, of an America that shoots prisoners out of hand, or keeps them forever in an illegal offshore concentration camp - I despise.

    Interesting read from the NY Times.


    This will drive the Republicans crazy.

    I guess that's at least a genuine response, although if I was looking for people to blame for the majority of our problems, I would look more at Congress. Presidents are just visible and known to everyone.

    As I recall neither of you were happy with the past use of drone strikes, and neither was I. If someone is in custody, why wouldn't they be allowed their rights and placed on trial?
