    It is shocking not a single interviewer doesn't call him on his record. Of course we know the answer, retaliation. The corporate masters that run the world would fire anyone who did that on camera a la Dan Rather.

    Outstanding article.

    No mention of the Clinton Administration. Odd.

    He had the chance to take Bin Ladin out multiple times, but passed.

    I forget, which branch of the military did Clinton serve?

    We should sit down and have coffee and doughnuts with Al-Queda and the Taliban.

    That will work. Just ask Barry.

    So much proof you just don't read do you? You just download your talking points from Hannity and Rush right?

    You mean as opposed to the distinguished service records of Geo. Bush and Dick Cheney?

    When it comes to the war, all eyes are on CHENEY.
    That bastard had a hard on for Iraq and Saddam going back as far as Bush I. Mentioning anyone or anything else is a diversionary tactic to not focus on the person who's REALLY responsible.

    So no... we won't mention Clinton. We won't obsess over what Nancy Pelosi was told. Let's focus on the REAL issue here.

    Honestly, why do you guys even dignify his shit with a reply? It's plainly apparent he's not the least bit interested in intellectually honest dialogue...so why feed it at all?

    Because arguing with people like that can be simultaneously very fun and terribly aggravating, with both feelings stemming from the other party's (in this case referring generally to people in a conversation/argument) refusal to even attempt anything intellectual.

    1. Bin Laden is a nobody, just a scapegoat for the US government.

    2. Al Qaeda is NOT some organized super terrorist organization, they're nobodies built into SATAN so the US Government has an external enemy to fight.

    3. Diverting it to Clinton is Neo-Con tactic #1, failure on you sir.

    4. Having talks with enemies is not a bad thing armchair general. It's the right thing to do.

    Calling someone a liberal when their not? Neo-Con tactic #2.

    Because someone doesn't agree with your distorted, and fed to you worldview does not make them a liberal.

    This ignorant "Red vs Blue, Left vs Right" dichotomy belief is so....ugh. There's more than 2 belief systems in the world, and I ascribe to neither.

    I agree; but there have been numerous presidents with no military experience that have waged military conflicts.

    Bush was recent but he has a lot of company.

    Obama has no military experience, yet he deployed more troops to Afghan.

    Does the OP really want to establish a precedent in which the President cannot wage war unless he/she has served in the military?

    Its a ridiculous notion and a bogus OP.
