Obama crows about killing Bin Laden an 22 Al Qaeda leaders
A fed-up President Obama fired back at GOP presidential hopefuls who claimed he runs a soft foreign policy - by pointing to the notches on his belt as proof of his toughness.
"Ask Osama bin Laden and the 22 out of 30 top Al-Qaeda leaders who have been taken off the field whether I engage in appeasement," dared Obama during an unscheduled White House news conference Thursday.
Several GOP White House hopefuls - including current favorites Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney - attacked the Presidents record the previous day during a Republican Jewish Coalition conference in Washington.
Obama used the May slaying of the terrorist mastermind - and the killings of nearly two dozen of his lieutenants - as a rebuttal to the GOPs questioning of his track record as commander in chief.

He likes to pretend he’s a gangsta street thug punk, but he’s never been in a fight in his life. A pampered wuss; perfumed prince. Arrogant beyond measure. Narcissistic without reason.
I’d rather ask Bill Ayers......
Hey Barry! Show us the evidence that Bin Laden is dead! Oh, wait. You can’t. There are no released photos! There is no body! There are no countries who were allowed to witness or examine the body for confirmation. So, Barry! All we have is the word of a lying sack of sh!t currently occupying the WH.
I happened to see this press conference and the real Obama came out—he’s a thin-skinned A-hole.He has clearly appeased Iran and blew a golden opportunity to support the protesters and take the country down from within. I’m sure he blocked the military mission to have a B-2 or a cruise missile take out the RQ-170 drone in Iran, that is about to be reverse-engineered by the Chi-Coms.

and now take a second to think about all the crazies that will be after you and your family for the rest of your/their lives. I think that’s why Bush never removed some of these terrorists
Ask OBL why it took Obama 16 hours to make up his mind as to whether or not to go after him. I’m guessing the silence from the White House after that question will be deafening.
The only reason Obambi was at the briefing was to deflect coverage from the Holder testimony about Gunrunner.
Just wow. And look at all our dead soldiers and SEALS and Marines. Is he willing to take responsibility for them as well?
...Dumbo is acting like the narcissistic dolt caught up in his own lies and actions, paranoia, best get out of town Dumbo...
.......17 days recovering from bull**** story telling needed badly....
Holder is making a fool of himself and his deputy just committed perjury in a Congressional Hearing.
The media hasn't noticed.
Make that the previous 6+ years.
..latest is they are trying to claim the FT Hood killings as a “workplace violence”...
And those supposed eight are ensconced in the White House.
Everybody knows Obozo had to be dragged away from the golf course kicking and screaming to give the go-ahead (that he had dilly-dallied on for months on end) by Leon Panetta, of all people, and others...
Yes, let’s ask Bin Laden. Where’s his body, anyway?
OBL was “low hanging fruit” which the Obama HAD to take, lest the backlash from not taking be overwhelming. Methinks there’s a core in the military which knows what it’s gonna do regardless of the CiC, so stopping them would be worse than letting them take OBL.
OK, so BHO got OBL (viable debate aside). Now how about handing Libya & Egypt to AQ & Co.?
One step forward means little in the context of a hundred back.
Hussein handed our most secret techonology to Iran yesterday!
He should STFU about the WOT.
Here’s Obama “spiking the ball” for mere political purposes.
And yet Obama said he would not show us Bin Laden’s body,
that would be “spiking the ball.”
What a worthless POS.
” - - - He likes to pretend hes a gangsta street thug punk, but hes never been in a fight in his life. A pampered wuss; perfumed prince. Arrogant beyond measure. Narcissistic without reason.”
Well, if what you say is true, then your statements are consistent with a typical description of a former Community Organizer.
The problem that I have is that You Lie Obama has recently wrapped himself with Teddy Roosevelt’s “Square Deal,” Progressive, New Nationalism, Red White and Blue Banners.
So to resolve this serious perception-may-not-be-reality conflict, please comment on whether or not You Lie Obama could have made the cut to be in TR’s Rough Riders that charged up San Juan Hill.
(Assuming that mind-boggling time-travel would allow it.)
We saw the Sadam photos, we saw the Khadafi photos. We see people getting their heads blown off in the 8:00 hour on TV... but we can’t see proof that the most wanted terrorist is dead. And why did he rate a burial at sea? Why all the secrecy? A man on dialysis for years, yet no equipment found at the compound. Oops. They forgot that little item.
Obama intentionally releases more military secrets and technology to our enemies ...
Other than that, he hasn't done anything worthy of praise.
I would be willing to bet they have noticed and are working hard to keep the information out of the hands of the American people. After all, ZerO is their guy.
Kind of like spiking the ball on the 5.
He should ask the Iranian people how ‘tough’ he is with tyrants and terrorists.
I still thinking that the Obama progressives will self-destruct....they’re going off the rails.
So if Ahmadenijad should happen to develop a bomb while he dithers and tries to use sanctions once more (September 2009 deadline long past), and blows up a major US, European or Israeli city, and then goes underground, we should feel comforted that he will not stop an elite unit who discovers his whereabouts from letting him have it. But what if he does not go underground?
His policy is what?
From your lips to His ears....
"We don't need to spike the football...Osama bin Laden is not a trophy" - Barack Obama
Well TR would have bitch-slapped Bambi like Patton whacked the shell shocked trooper. Bambi is the least capable or accomplished person to ever grace the halls of the White House, while being the most celebrated (Nobel Prize, “President” (? - not “Editor” which requires some merit) of the Harvard Law Review, Columbia BA, Harvard summa cum, etc.), without a shred of anything to show for any of it. Except our country and Constitution in shreds.
Osama was dead long before this guy assumed power...
They dragged his ass in off the golf course,
he clearly, from the video & pictures, didn’t want to be there watching something
he didn’t approve of and would have had it stopped if he could.
The military took initiative without his approval or knowledge, knowing they’d get told “no”.
As far as taking out ‘22 out of 30’ terrorist leaders, let’s face it: If you drop enough bombs on enough people in the Afgan hills, you are bound to take out at least one terrorist per explosion.
Along with a fairly large number of civilians, by the way, something I haven’t heard Zero brag about.
I’m sure if I look far enough back there will an irate Sen Obama calling President Bush horrible names because a civilian may have been hit under his watch.
If we can find it, all the potential candidates as well as Boehner and the RNC need to be reminded. Zero is going to make the claim he was responsible for getting rid of terrorists, all the way thru the campaign and a response must be prepared.
Oh, and the other reason those terrorists were taken out was because Zero continued to follow President Bush’s game plan for the War on Terror.
Zero couldn’t win a game of checkers if he played himnself.
Has anyone seen in the media the number of military deaths being reported since Obozo took office? I have not. I visit a website that provides the number of coalition and U.S. military deaths month by month since 2001 for both Afghanistan and Iraq. When G.W.B. was President the death count was scrolling across the bottom of all of the news outlets on T.V. Today? Crickets!!!
Why is he taking credit for killing someone who was already dead.
The US military did the work and he acts like he was in the helicopter landing on Osamas roof.
bama took SIXTEEN HOURS to make up his mind about Bin Laden mission

* President ‘slept on it’ as tense military chiefs awaited decision
* Action started the next morning when Obama declared ‘it’s a go’

* Outpouring of emotion on streets down to ‘the same sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11’ Obama told members of Congress
Barack Obama kept military commanders hanging by declaring he would ‘sleep on it’ before taking 16 hours to give the go-ahead to raid Bin Laden’s compound.
Hit squads of specialist Navy Seals - who were not even told who they were preparing to capture - had practised the mission at two reconstructions of the terror chiefs sprawling compound.
The mission looked set to be given the all clear last Thursday when analysts confirmed beyond doubt that Bin Laden was in busy town of Abbottabad in northern Pakistan.
But the president stunned officials when he told a national security meeting that he wanted more time to think - and disappeared out of the room.
‘I’m not going to tell you what my decision is now - I’m going to go back and think about it some more,’ said Obama, according to the New York Times. He then added ‘I’m going to make a decision soon.’
The head of the CIA and other senior intelligence officers who were keen to proceed were left tense as they waited for the president’s decision.
But the next morning after 16 hours, Obama summoned four top aides to the White House Diplomatic Room. Before they could speak, the president put his fist on the table and declared ‘It’s a go’.
With those three words, the greatest military operation in recent history began. Had it not been for heavy cloud cover on Saturday, troops would have been deployed then.
But they waited another day, and reached Pakistan just before midnight on Sunday evening. Obama refused to tell Pakistan about the mission in case it was leaked by jihadist sympathisers within the administration and Bin Laden took flight.
Luckily, the four U.S. helicopters were not detected by Pakistan’s military who would have been quick to take action against the uninvited aircrafts.
After a 40-minute raid, the details of which are still emerging, Bin Laden was declared dead having received a bullet to the brain.
Millions of U.S. citizens still scarred by the atrocities of September 11 took to the streets to celebrate news that the world’s most wanted terrorists had been killed.
Obama received a rousing standing ovation from his own party and political rivals alike yesterday as American’s rejoiced in the defeat of Osama Bin Laden.
President Obama retold to members of Congress details of the skilled mission that claimed the head of the world’s most wanted terrorist.
And for a moment rising gas prices, high unemployment and future economic concerns were forgotten as his 2012 re-election campaign received a massive boost.
Upon hearing Bin Laden’s name, lawmakers of both parties interrupted the president with a standing ovation and whistles.
The moving applause came as scenes of celebration and reflection unfolded across the U.S. where citizens have longed for the Al Qaeda leader to be slain.
arrghh, sorry all about the huge image sizes. I forgot to test their sizes.
You forgot to mention that Obama was a Lecturer on the “Destruction of the US Constitution” at the Chicago School of Bureaucratic Socialism. He is currently on academic leave from that distinguished institution.
Teddy Roosevelt and George Patton fought eyeball to eyeball. High Poo-Bah Obama uses snipers in the form of high-tech unmanned missiles and drones controlled from beyond the horizon of the battlefield.
BTW, do you know of ANYBODY who would follow Obama “into the gates of Hell?” Even his dog is smarter than that!
