    Chalking it down to the CIC's ability is pretty weak. Opportunities and intelligence work stretching back to the previous administration may have well been decisive factors in pinpointing OBL.

    That's what I'm thinking. No one wants to look unAmerican and bring up the legality problem but I think eventually it will catch up with him, even if it was the right choice.

    Another glaring example of double standards. The media and Democrats raked Bush over the coals for ever mentioning 9/11 in speeches or campaign ads. Now they excuse Obama because "Bush did it too".

    http://newsbusters.org/blogs/tim-gra...-bush-re-elect
    [LEFT][*******#000000][FONT=Georgia]On MSNBC, Countdown's Keith Olbermann proclaimed about the collapsed World Trade Center towers briefly pictured, "Quote: 'It's as sick as people who stole things out of the place.' Some firefighters, some families of the victims of 9/11, protesting President Bush's new campaign ad."

    While Brian Williams now stars in the Obama video, the networks then were beating the anti-Bush drums:[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Georgia]"Using these 9/11 images is already drawing political fire from Senator John Kerry and outrage among some victims' families; 'a slap in the face,' says one widow, 'of the murders of 3,000 people.'" – ABC reporter Kate Snow on Good Morning America, March 4.[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Georgia]The firefighters union says in a statement that it was a cheap trick to use even fleeting images of the real events of 9/11."

    - ABC's Diane Sawyer to Karen Hughes on Good Morning America, March 4. Sawyer did not mention that the same firefighters group has endorsed John Kerry and is actively campaigning on behalf of his presidential campaign.[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Georgia]"But you know this is one of those things where images can make or break a candidate. Could this turn into another 'Mission Accomplished?'"

    - CBS's Harry Smith to Hughes on The Early Show on March 4, referring to the banner placed behind the President on the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln as he congratulated the crew for their successful role in the military coalition that liberated Iraq.[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Georgia]"One September 11th widow told the [New York] Daily News this morning she was offended by the use of 9/11 images in these ads, saying quote, 'After three thousand people were murdered on his watch, it seems to me that takes an awful lot of audacity. Honestly, it's in poor taste.' What's your response to that?"

    - NBC's Katie Couric to Bush campaign adviser Karen Hughes on the March 4 Today. Couric skipped quotes in the same article from 9/11 relatives who support Bush.[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Georgia]"President Bush today began running the first television advertisements of his re-election campaign, and already they are drawing heavy criticism, including some from families of 9/11 victims. Political opponents, 9/11 families, and others are accusing the President of doing something he insisted he would never do: Exploit a national tragedy for political gain." CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather, March 4.

    "Some critics are calling the ads the height of election-year hypocrisy, pointing out that President Bush was quick to use 9/11 to build up his image. At the same time, he is refusing to cooperate fully with the commission investigating the attacks on America." CBS Evening News reporter John Roberts, March 4.[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Georgia]"This is not the first time Mr. Bush has been accused of using the 9/11 attack for political gain. In May of 2002 the White House was criticized for allowing congressional Republicans to use a picture of the President on Air Force One speaking to the Vice President just hours after the attacks on New York and Washington. Political analysts say the President is once again walking a fine line."
    - David Gregory on the March 4 NBC Nightly News.[/FONT][/COLOR][/LEFT]

    There's plenty of reliable info out at this point so if you don't know what i'm talking about you must want to ignore it. I guess I ran into one of those MOD cyber bullies and pissed you off huh? and your answer to how many medals I won, it's 7 but they were all silver caus you won all the gold medals.

    Isn't this a forum board where you express your opinions and read others? I'm wondering because " I wonder if anyone gives a **** what you think" sure makes it sound like this is your own private forum and you make all the rules. Now I'll see if you can respond with less hate and anger!

    Hmmmm....this post's style reminds me of a certain banned member of this board's old post. Has me wondering if he's trying to make a comeback, especially after reading over some of his other recent posts.

    No hate or anger were included. The internet isnt that serious.
