LANGLEY, Virginia (AFP) – President Barack Obama warned Friday Al-Qaeda members must watch their backs, as the United States acts on a trove of intelligence seized from Osama bin Laden's compound.

((snip))

"We're going to pursue every lead. We are going to go wherever it takes us. We're going to finish the job. We're going to defeat Al-Qaeda," Obama said.

Off course if his predecessor made such comments the journalism wing of the entertainment industry would be all over him for his “reckless” talk, his “swagger” and cowboy demeanor.

And such talk would, of course, be the ‘cause’ of terrorism and not a response to it.

Trying to sound tough.

If Obama were at all intelligent (which I long ago saw was not the case), he would have bemoaned the lack of information found in bin Laden’s hideout. A good poker player seldom boasts of his hand, or even talks about it.

The supporters of Obama have lavished him with so much undeserved adulation, so that (being a person of no meaningful life and work experience) he probably believes in his own cleverness.

A narcissist never can understand why anyone resists his genius. They all must be stupid, or they just don’t understand, the way he does, because he is the enlightened one. He has the inner gift, and he can access it merely by reading from the teleprompter.

Hey guess what Ostinkbugula, your intelligence is probably now worthless. The muzzies were certainly tipped off because of the way you broadcast the killing of bin-Laden to stroke your enormous ego and have long now covered their trails and moved on.

Good on him. For once.

However, it’s ironic that UBL in his final audio message, sounded pretty much exactly like Obama...

Suporting the “democracy movements” and MB. Almost as if they were reading off the same two teleprompters.

Odd question.

So you’re a globalist “free trader” and use this unrelated thread as an excuse to criticize?

What’s your beef?

“”We’re going to pursue every lead. We are going to go wherever it takes us. We’re going to finish the job. We’re going to defeat Al-Qaeda,” Obama said.”

Repeated short sentences, with strong parallel constuction. Sounds great to the masses. But what does it mean? Where does “where” mean? “Pursuing leads”! Wow, is that tough?

“Finish the job.” How would someone who never had a job know what that means?

“Defeat Al-Qaeda.” Oh? I what will that look like. Will some terrorist leaders come aboard an aircraft carrier and sign a surrender document? Or will the terrorists simply be hauled off to a courtroom in New York City, for an endless trial, to the enrichment of all the lawyers?

Community organizer talks tough. Big deal.

Guess Valerie Jarrett OK’d the tough talk.

She sure as hell didn’t approve the Bin Laden raid.

Isn't giving aid, comfort or intelligence to the enemy considered TREASON?

He wasn't "warning" them at all, he was giving them notice that we have actionable intelligence on them, and giving them time to hide as a result.

Impeach the bastard in the White House NOW!!!

Under Bush/Cheney, they would have kept their mouths shut and let al-Queda worry about what they know or don’t know.

It’s a response to the criticism Hussein has received for stabbing Israel in the back.

"...The muzzies were certainly tipped off because of the way you broadcast the killing of bin-Laden to stroke your enormous ego and have long now covered their trails and moved on......"

Exactly right. If the killing of Osama were a genuine patriotic/military action devoid of politics, the SEALS would have done their job under EXTREME secrecy. Nobody on the other side would even know about it.

Then, using all the computers and info confiscated, the rest of the bastards such as Al-Zawahiri, Omar, etc (right on down to low level operatives) could effectively be hunted down and killed.

But, nope....this despicable bastard in our White House had to have his day of glory. At such a great cost....

This prick can play the dead mans dream all he wants with Bin Laden, I hear the new man that has taken over for Osama is a former special forces member. Much more dangerous.

Usually when you warn someone to “watch their back” it comes across as protectionism, or hope they will be OK. This is a huge Freudian slip, IMHO.

I think he will go after them. I view him like all other 3rd world “leaders that will protect what is theirs in a vicious ad hoc manner. It is a form of street fighting.

What types of governments and leaders provoke most of our wars? Who fights the most bitter bloody wars? It is usually one fascist/dictator/thug/communist vs another.

He may hate us but how can he bring us to heel if al-Qaeda get us first?
