Obama Blames GOP Tactics For Failure To Catch Osama

Obama Blames GOP Tactics For Failure To Catch Osama according to an AP article.

Couple things:

  • Osama is not the goal in the War on Terror -- that is a fallacy common among those who prefer using law enforcement to imprison terrorists rather then take the fight to them (which is a tactic that has worked so far).
  • Iraq was not a distraction. Iraq was a major front in the War on Terror, one of many.
  • It took 5 years to catch Eric Rudolph and he was here in America and everyone was looking for him!
  • It took 18 years to catch the Unabomber, again here in America and as Obama is fond to point out about Osama he too continued to send messages to the media up just a few months before caught.
I really have to wonder if all of Obama's bluster is pure politics because it would really be hard to believe he missed or misinterpreted as much history as he seems to have.
