Killing Osama Bin Laden .

Al Qaeda on the run.Now fighting for survival.

It is an undeniable truth that while the terrorist organization Al Qaeda may still exist,it has been decimated and no longer poses the threat to the civilized world it once did.Of course, the United States and the west should and will keep a close watch on this and all terrorist organizations,because any one member at any given time can shock the world with horrific acts that inflict harm on the innocent regardless of their age, nationality or religion as they have done in the past.But the importance of this is that in this new incarnation or state rather than planning a massive attack on large populations it has to limit itself to small actions carried out by lone wolf individuals.

The proof Al Qaeda has been reduced to its minimum expression .

The proof Al Qaeda has been decimated as an organization is the fact that the void it left has been filled by ISIS . The birth of ISIS and its success in spreading through the region and several countries has many reasons but its only possible destiny is defeat and extinction because it is an isolated group with no allies beyond extreme fundamentalist muslims , and it has managed to make many powers that are enemies among themselves to coincide in their objective of destroying and defeating it.

It's almost grotesquely comical to hear them

President Clinton couldn't capture or kill him,President Bush also failed, and just as he promised he would do president Barak Obama accomplished the mission of doing justice to the murderer of the 21st century,but the right wing nut talking heads can not seem to be able to put aside their hatred for this president to, for one moment say at least , in this one instance you did your job. Instead, right from the beginning, they started to trash him because of some valid but mostly totally superfluous reasons regarding the historic operation.Such is their embarrassing venom spewing rhetoric, that people that didn't even like or voted for Obama are now annoyed and even disgusted by their shameless behavior and drawn to defend a president they don't even plan to vote for.I realized that listening to the Rush Limbaugh show the other day when one of his listeners called, a Limbaugh sympathizer who said to be a military member and tried to convince Rush that this was a positive accomplishment of the president and that the burial wasn't such a big deal, he really exasperated the host when he called Obama "My commander in chief" big no- no in Dittoland who ended up cutting him off to not get really nasty with the guy.another amusing moment was seeing Oli North ,no big liberal or commie trying to convince that Bimbo Hannity that it's the right decision not to show the pictures of Bin Laden dead.They are really getting wacky out there,the Birthers now also Deathers who I bet are 90 percent the same people,I think are really going to sink any possibility for the republican party to win the White House, and may even open the door for at least making a comeback in the House or winning it back altogether,as well as maintaining the majority in the senate.But in any case what is now clear is that the discourse of the right wing extremists that can not bring themselves to give the president any credit on any front is going to sound even more petty to the ears of those who are not listening to the radio right wing talking heads.

I for one give him credit for the end of Bin Laden, and discredit for his administration's "Stand down." on saving the Seals and Ambassador at Benghazi, for lying that his "signature achievement" the Affordable Care Act would not be a tax (but was only legal because it is a tax,) for being indecisive about ISIS, in a hurry to get out of Iraq, and his ignored Red Line on Syria, the lost integrity of Ukraine, the length of time it has taken to get Americans back to work, the slow response to ebola, and for now taking our outstanding fighting unit, the 101st Airborne, to build clinics in West Africa.

Insecure borders, Immigration and Tax Reform,and so many of the same problems he promised to solve almost six years ago remain unsolved. Meanwhile our infrastructure is decaying and unattended to, while we still have no responsible budget and his administration has spent us nearly 8 trillion dollars further in debt than the 10 trillion we owed when he came to power. Then there is his outrageous use of Executive Orders to circumvent the do-nothing Congress the Democrats effectively controlled until the public became restless, and which, like him, is elected to make the laws, and share oversight with him in governing the USA. We could add his and his family's extravagant expenditures for personal staff and personal vacations at taxpayer's expense, and....on....and....on....and.... . And you ask why we don't give him enough credit for our military getting Osama bin Laden? His hasty announcement that we did, before we could properly act on the intelligence trove we captured was not his finest moment either!

i really don't know where i said anything about a conspiracy, my point is that not even on an issue as clear as this one are the right wing nuts able to give the president credit for a job well done. even if he did receive help on this from the previous administration he could have very easily screwed it up just as bush and clinton before him had. i think you are not paying attention to what i wrote and just repeating a talking point about a conspiracy

Not sure where ot star on this one. First, the left or Dems are the last to accuse the Repubs of a conpiracy, they always blow up in their face. Lets see, Wenie bate" the right has done this to create a distraction from me doing my job, but it will not"

Next "Vast right-wing conspiracy" was a phrase used by then United States. First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in 1998 in defense of her husband, President Bill Clinton, and his administration during the Lewinsky scandal, characterizing the Lewinsky charges as the latest in a long, organized, collaborative series of charges by Clinton's political enemies. The Starr investigation found that the Lewinsky affair had not been fabricated.

Next The Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C., were seen by both the far left and far right as fitting the bill for an intentional "crisis trigger." Dema and "truthers" argued that the World Trade Center buildings were destroyed by controlled demolitions, that a missile brought down United Airlines 93, and that a missile -- and not an airliner at all -- struck the Pentagon. Who was responsible? The U.S. government, of course. On the far left, the reason seen for attacking the American people was to justify a perpetual state of war; on the far right, it provided an excuse for the government to, at long last, institute a police state.

I will say this, I was a NY firefighter and was there. There were no controlled demolitions and to say otherwise is a lie and spits on the memories of my 343 brother that died that day. Not to mention I have breathing problems and almost died last December. I am still here in the Hospital/rehab.

I could list many more but I need to stop or this will become a book.

As to Obama, he had nothing to do woth Bin Ladens death despite all the speaches he gave taking credit. All he said was me me me. Sorry it was not you. It was the Intelligence community and our armed forces that deserve the credit. The truth is Obama was against it but gave in because of the pressure he was getting from Gates.
