Here’s a photo I snapped before today’s walk. We have a gap in the weather, this looks East as fresh clouds and weather rolls in from the SW this am.
President Obama got this exactly right during the campaign, and ever since he was elected. He’s been pounding the leadership of Al Qaeda and the Taliban in both Waziristans without relenting for two years now to great effect. Now under his command and his direction, Osama Bin Laden has been taken out. Kudos to him for his consistent focus on the actual terrorists, and his successful prosecution of the war against them. If anyone cares to argue this, I will merely point out the huge number of successful drone strikes within Pakistan, there’s no need to point out the fact that we got Bin Laden.
Let’s put this into language even wingnuts can understand. Obama promised to get our greatest enemy inside Pakistan, and he sent seals in to do that. They kicked ass, took names, and turned our greatest enemy into fishfood. President Obama has my vote in 2012.
