I prefer preventing terrorist attacks in the US being the top priority.

Huh? And you link prooves what?
Nothing to you, obviously.

I have always been very muscular in the approach to capturing Bin Laden, absolutely. In that aspect - we have full and good reason to go after him - we were attacked first.

Hopefully the window of opportunity has not passed. My gripe with Bush is the pressure and focus should have been placed on Bin Laden IMMEDIATELY after 9/11 until he was caught, while we still had the backing of the majority of the world.

But wait Obama is doing the same thing Bush did. You said you favor invading Pakistan. Obama will not do that. Are you equally upset with Obama?

Right after 9/11 we bomb the s**t out of Tora Bora and chased him all over the mountain region of Afghanistan. Implying we were sitting back doing nothing to get him after 9/11 is revisionist history.

Yikes, he got imput from many different quarters. That is far different than your statement that he was manipulated.

Let me help you out here. I am sure Obama recieved imput from the UAW with regards to Chrysler and GM. Do you think he was manipulated by them?

I don't think we need to invade Pakistan to capture Bin Laden. Several options available, including working with Pakistan to crack down on the militant forces in that area, which Bin Laden is quite obviously pissed about.

Yeah, exactly. A big show right after 9/11 and then, oh whatever, lets focus on Iraq instead of staying the course.

Oh, please just look up information on what led up to the invasion of Iraq. I dont have time for this.

Something interesting is the congressional record in the days it was dawning on Congress that they'd been misled concerning WMDs.

Big show? Are implying that our Marines and special ops chasing Bin laden all over Afghanistan was phony? Once he ran into Pakistan our options wer limited.

OK, I am happy you backed off the obviously crazy notion of invading Pakistan. Now you do realize that our actions in Pakistan are destabilizing the government and further that the have nuclear weapons. The last thing we want to have happen is for the government to collapse and leave those weapons vulnerable.

OK so we are back to tin foil hat time. There is nothing to substantiate your wacky claims.
