June 19, 2008 -- NAME-BRAND journalists have let Barack Obama make any claim he chooses about Iraq, Afghanistan or coping with terrorism without pinning him down for details.
Yet many of his comments and positions seem stunningly naive about national security. Given that this man may become our next president, shouldn't he explain how he'd do the many impressive things he's promised?
This week, Obama claimed, again, that he'd promptly capture Osama bin Laden. OK, tell me how: Specifically, which concrete measures would he take that haven't been taken? How would he force our intelligence agencies to locate bin Laden? And he can't just respond, "That's classified."
He also claimed that fighting terrorism is a law-enforcement problem, not a military one (should we send the NYPD to Mosul and Kandahar?), and that the answer to terrorism is the approach taken after the 1993 World Trade Center attack, featuring conventional trials and prison terms.
That flaccid post-'93 response only encouraged terrorists - who are unfazed by the prospect of a US prison, where the quality of life's better than it was at home. The Clinton administration's hesitancy and softness gave us the subsequent attacks on the Khobar Towers housing complex in Saudi Arabia, on our embassies in East Africa, on the USS Cole and, ultimately, the events of 9/11.
The senator needs to tell us why it would be different now.
Obama has also said he'd send our troops into Pakistan, although he'll withdraw rapidly from Iraq. His unwillingness to discuss the consequences of a hasty retreat from Baghdad is one thing - but invading Pakistan would be an order of magnitude worse.

Read this this morning in the print version. Excellent.
Hey Hey Hey! Can he promise free ice cream and no homework too!?!?!
“Given that this man may become the next president...”
He may not,he must not...The fight is only beginning and we can hear the voices of the surrenderers...
Obama obfuscates, he is a master of it.
Don’t forget the free pony while you are at it!
1) Obama grants Osama immunity.
2) Obama offers Osama a cabinet position.
Are these punks twins or just siblings?
Obama has absolutely no military experience. In these days, we need a war time President. Sad to say but that’s just the way it is. Obama only knows what others tell him....that in itself is scarey. One big question is ....who is controlling him.
“One big question is ....who is controlling him.”
As with most everything nowadays - follow the $$$$.
Soros is surely one of the puppet masters..
Free room and board by the beach in the warm Caribbean...not too shabby.
The press needs to ask Obama - If the US military had Osama in the crosshairs of a predator drone, would President Obama give the authority to the military to kill Osama? If Obama’s position is yes, how does he square that with giving Osama Habeas corpus when defendents are presumed innocent?
Obama answer: “Well, ah, you know, ah, well, huh? Time up? Gotta go. Hope & Change!!”
Satan is controlling him
I hate to say it, but Hillary is a better choice!
PING for 9/10 Obama.
My mom says he’s the devil in disguise.
