Skip to comments.How WikiLeaks vindicated Bush’s anti-terrorism strategy

Osama bin Ladens death at the hands of U.S. special operations forces is a major success in our countrys war against al-Qaeda. As a result of the Central Intelligence Agencys interrogation program and the intelligence gained from detainees held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, a major fraction of al-Qaedas senior leadership has been captured or killed since 2001.

From Anonymous: Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonalds and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. Its the guy cooking the burger that should get the credit, not the clown.
Oh boy. I can smell the burning Birkenstocks of thousands of “enlightened progressives” frantically running around their eco-friendly homes cancelling their subscriptions to the Washington Post for printing an article by the evil, lying, racist, Rumsfeld ...
Yeah, but I thought McD’s used precooked burgers and just heated them up....
Well, someone had to totally miss the point, right? I figured it was my turn. ;-)
I just posted that anonymous quotation to my facebook. Can’t wait to see how many people flip lids over it.
The Washington Post wrote this? WOW!
There are going to be a lot of liberals, Democrats and progressives that will be upset at this article.
OK, it is an editorial comment by Donald Rumsfeld, the dems, libs and progressive will ignore anything he says.
He became a hero to me when on 9/11 he helped with the injured after the jet crashed into the Pentagon.
I predicted all along that when Bush dies, just as with Reagan, the very same people that said the most vile things about him while his was President, will heap praise after praise on him.
They even admitted they've known his whereabouts since last summer. I wondered if they weren't sitting on it, hoping they could wait until next summer - to use it for the election.
Has ANY one asked them why they waited almost a year before they acted on getting him? Has anyone asked them why they took the chance that he wouldn't be switched to another location - and they would lose him?
Oh, right. Never mind. We don't question this regime.
I’m fairly certain that “controversial” will be liberally peppered over every pseudo-nice thing the MSM says at that time.
An oxymoron if there ever was one..
Julian Assange hoped that his latest gamble with the lives of intelligence professionals, military personnel and terrorist informants would embarrass the U.S. government and inhibit its ability to strike our enemies. But the WikiLeaks documents, coupled with what we know about how bin Ladens hiding place was discovered, may be among the clearest vindications yet of the Bush administrations policies in the struggle to protect America and the free world from more terrorist attacks. They may prove the strongest arguments for keeping open the invaluable asset that is Guantanamo Bay.
How appropriate that Wiki's supporters end up justifying the very administration they claimed to despise.
I don't wonder, I know. What an "October Surprise" they had planned for us!
