Bush Home Buzzing After Bin Laden Killing

DALLAS (AP) – Flag-waving supporters left flowers and patriotic red, white and blue balloons outside the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush Monday in the hours that followed the U.S.-led mission that killed Osama bin Laden.

“Thank you President Bush,” said a sign left on the gate outside the street leading to the secluded Bush residence.

About a dozen people gathered near his security-tight residence until a thunderstorm rolled into the area early Monday.

Bush, who was home when he learned of bin Laden’s death late Sunday, released a statement congratulating President Barack Obama and praising the U.S. military personnel involved in the operation in northern Pakistan. Bush was in power on 9/11 when terrorists commandeered four commercial jets, crashing them in New York City, Washington D.C. and in Pennsylvania, killing nearly 3,000 people.

The president in October 2001 sent U.S. forces on the offensive against al-Qaida and Taliban in Afghanistan.

“This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001,” said Bush, in a statement Sunday night, after Obama called to inform the nation’s 43rd president of the terrorist leader’s death. “The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.”

Bush spokesman David Sherzer said Monday that the ex-president does not plan any additional statement.

A spokesperson for Bush’s father, the 41st president, George H.W. Bush of Houston, did not immediately return a call for comment Monday.

The goal of getting bin Laden has been achieved, said U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.

“That mission has now been accomplished through the patience and steadfast determination of our military, our intelligence officials, and the united leadership of Presidents Bush and Obama,” she said. “Now we must continue to dismantle this and other terrorist networks that attempt to destroy freedom and human rights throughout the world.”

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said justice has finally been served.

“Let this serve as a grave reminder to all those who wish to do our nation harm: If you murder Americans, you will be hunted, you will be found and you will be brought to justice,” Cornyn said in a statement. “I commend the military and intelligence professionals whose tremendous efforts ended the reign of this terrorist mastermind.”

Texas Attorney General Gregg Abbott says American justice will forever prevail.

“The face of evil has been eradicated thanks to American forces’ dogged pursuit of justice,” said Abbott.

  • Claudia

    It wasn’t Bush who got OBL, he should have, could have but didn’t. Bush was too busy making money off the war to ” get er’ done “. Thanks all go to President Obama and our troops, not Bush!

    • Kelly R

      Claudia what is your liberal excuse for Clinton letting him get away???

    • Jett

      Another conspiracy theorist with access to the internet.

    • Mission Actually Accomplished

      Republicans threaten. Democrats get the job done.

    • krakowian

      Sorry, Claudia, but this is either a totally mis-informed opinion, or ignorant or forgetful of history. When Bush was president, and we went into Afghanistan, Musharraf was leader, and a necessary ally in the war. Once Bin Laden moved into Pakistan, hands were tied. Also, you might want to know that in 2006, Pelosi herself essentially said it wasn’t worth trying to capture or kill him then. Can you at least admit that you are purely politically motivated, since your own words bely that fact?

    • jj

      what money did bush make off of the war? you know the one President obama could choose to end, yet doesnt…

    • Wilnton III

      Oh Claudia, people such as yourself need to re-examine your comment, this is not about Bush vs Obama, it is about taking out a very bad person in the world that has affected hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world!

    • Mark

      I give them both credit. Obama for having the guts to give the go ahead for the mission and Bush for withstanding all of the abuse over Guantanamo and interrogation procedures which ultimately provided the necessary intel to finally find this compound. This is a great day for America!

    • Nadia B

      and by making money u mean lowered our taxes and was the one out helping ppl like FL when they got hit with hurricanes…lol obama was trying to pull our troops out not go look OBL, bush never stopped looking and he would’ve had him had the media not stupidly announce about our intel on their calls and msgs

    • Harold

      Claudia, you are an idiot! Obama threatened to discontinue all of Bush’s policies concerning apprehension and interrogation of terrorists who were captured. Furthermore, he said that he was going to CLOSE GITMO. Interrogations at
      GITMO led to the intelligence information that permitted his eventual
      death. You need a crash course in LOGIC!

    • Mike

      Uhhh…you must be under 20 years old right? Obama did one thing here…made the “go” call. The Bush administration paved the way for this operation four years ago with information obtained from terrorists at Gitmo (which Obama wanted to close). Obama deserves credit for one thing…giving the right call. The Bush administration, CIA, and United States Military did all of the real work here, despite what your messiah may claim.

    • Rosemary Sutton

      If it were not for Bush, OBL would still be on the loose. Wake up and pay attention to history. It actually started during the interrogations of 2011 that led to this. If Obama had closed Getmo this would not have happened. I do give Obama credit for the go ahead and the results. This has been a culmulation of years of intell.

    • Zinger

      Claudia – what are you smoking? Without Bush policies this never would have happened. And Obama took the opportunity only to look good.

    • Virginian

      Claudia you’re stupid. Go learn your ABC’s.

    • Keith

      Obama is a small, petty and insecure man–never been much more than an organizer. Just say thanks to Bush for his role and then take your credit. It’s the least you can do to once be respectful of the office you hold instead of viewing everything as a cheap politian. Rise up, young man.

    • Angie

      Let me explain this to you REAL SLOW CLAUDIA, It’s President Bush’s Terror Policies, That YOUR EL Obozo, is FOLLOWING thats how he GOT OSOMA OKAY??? Your El Bozo could’nt lead a Girl Scout Troop to a campfire without someone holding his HANDS!!!!!! AGREE OUR MILATARY is the One WHO DESERVES ALL THE CREDIT …

    • Capn Jack

      According to news reports, the intelligence about the Osama compound was first generated four years ago through a Gitmo detainee, who was subjected to enhanced interrogation techniques.
      I want to thank those that were responsible for keeping Gitmo in operation and for using the enhanced interrogation techniques.

    • Mrs Kadaffii

      Well we will see how long it will take Obama to get Kadaffi! He bombed the facility and still didn’t get him. Soon there will be no intelligence agencies they will be reassigned as air traffic controllers…..

    • Joan Trofino

      Claudia: For once I feel able to commend Obama…although, I always feel he has another motive in all his actions…in this one, I think he wants to appear decisive and strong to the American public…J

    • gfy2734

      I agree with Timm. You’re an idiot.

    • cathy

      duh…enough said

      • cathy

        I love W….miss him so very much!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • cathy

        rotfl…poor Claudia…wonder does she regret her stupidity yet??? Geez.

    • Dave Johnston

      Obama just happened to be filling the seat at the time they finally got their sights on OBL so he got the credit. If they could’ve located the cave that cretin was occupying when Bush was at t he helm he would’ve sent in the cavary as well. It is just like Clinton getting the credit for the budget excess during his tenure it was nothing he did other then stick to the Reagan plan that was put in place when he was President and Clinton sticking to plan as did Bush Sr during his presidency. Reagan stated that it would not be on his watch that the budget would be balanced, he just started the appropriate plan and Clinton got the accolades because it came to frutation during his tenure.
      Not minimizing Obama’s order to ignore soveriegnty of Pakistan because if they would’ve been aware or were asked to join in, OBL would not have been there, he would’ve been tipped off before hand. It is just the fact of the matter that after 10years, Obama happened to be filling the seat when OBL location was finally nailed down. All the credit goes to our brave Navy Seals and bit of good fortune that our intelligence finally paid off. If bush was in it to make money off the war then he would’ve done what Donald Trump is advocating, “the spoils of war go the victor” and took control of them Iraqi oil wells. All you Obamaites that wanted real change got it, but not the change that was promised nor expected. Highest unemployment in decades, such bad debt that the US credit was downgraded and we are in the process of losing the position of the dollar being the world currency and if that happens the great depression will look like the good times. Hows that change working out for you?

    • james r.

      Dearest Claudia nobody said ‘GWB’ got to UBL, however our current president did ‘credit’ George Bush for creation of the information gathering system which lead to the terror king’s demise. As for Bush starting wars just to make a profit that boat must be right next to the birther ship, why don’t you & Donald Trump get onboard and take a long delusional trip.

    • Larry D. Crumbley

      Nice try Claudia, now go to bed, and let the “BIG” boys make some comments.

    • Danny Boy

      If you read past the headlines and white house press releases you would know that this was a 5 year operation!! Which began with intel gathered from high level detainees captured and held at Guantanimo!! You know the place your messiah wanted to close down??? Noe of this would be possible if we did not have the assets and tools that were put in by the Bush people…like Gitmo and military bases in Afghanistan etc.. These things don’t happen overnight .. I do commend Obama for continuing the Bush doctrine and not do what Clinton did and just fire tomohawk missiles…Kudos to the Prez for that….but lets not forget this was a ten year operation. Don’t be a simpleton..

    • mary

      Claudia, you are so brainwashed…”make money, make money”. So stuck in that liberal thinking that all republicans are out for the buck. Bottom line is Obama kept the Bush policies in place and that is how this murder was finally brought to justice!

    • pat

      “get er done” says it all… rednecks rarely understand …

    • Literate

      I thought Obama inherited this mess and hunt from Bush? The intelligence that made this happen was gathered at Gitmo, a place Obama vowed to close (until he realized that we don’t live in Candyland and some evils are necessary) and GWB opened. Obama deserves credit, but Bush and the military deserve more. Read a book.

    • riverdave

      Just why is your vision so narrow as to exclude facts and reason.

      There is something much more important than your petty partisan denial.

      On 9/12 2001 we stood together as one nation, we have been sense been driven back into little clusters, divided and venerable. Divided we fall.

      This was a victory to be proud of and celebrated as one nation. It was not something done by the single efforts of one man.It took nearly ten years of United effort to bring this moment. President Bush started a process that survived the current administration to this fruition.

      God Bless America and God Bless our Troops.

    • Tom

      To Claudia,
      yeah bc obama has done so much…..NOT! these troops that DID this (not obama) were threatened to not be payed a few weeks ago. oh and by the way this article was not thanking bush for killing OBL it was just stating the facts.

    • Timm

      Your an idiot Obama has done nothing but try to elimanate our military.

      • Nadia B

        amen to that! Bush gets ALL the credit b/c he’s the only one who had the testicular fortitude to go do what no one else could or had the guts to do…and obama just came in ON bush’s already set up activity…obama had NOTHING to do with all the work that got put in over the last 10yrs trying to find that sob, BUSH DID!!! Bush showed the world you do NOT mess with the USA. Obama had the audacity last night to say he was going to follow our national values, except he’s the one who took away national day of prayer this year, when this country’s 1st value is we are founded on Godly principles…we are a country that loves, protects, serves, assists, helps, and forgives…but we also follow old testament standars, “an eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth”…and BUSH reminded the world of that, NOT obama!

      • Barry Watson

        Thats right. The Obama Admin has blood on its hands. Their rules of engagement are getting our troops killed.

      • Jullou

        Democrats are so conflicted about a Democrat president giving the command to kill a terrorist, after 8 years of ranting and raving during the Bush Administration. What are the leftist anti-war crowd thinking now? Interesting how NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN and MSNBC are praising Obama, yet when Bush was in office, they worked hard to find any errors made by President Bush and the military.

        Where is the daily body count numbers now?
        Hey, 9/11 truthers, what are you thinking now. President Obama gave orders to kill Bin Laden. Are you a bit conflicted. LOL!!!

      • Tex

        Good comeback… I’m to understand that Mr. Obama and the CIA’s plan not only resulted in the death of bin Laden, but DIDN’T cost any U.S. lives. Bush on the other hand, gave us 10 years of costly wars and thousands of dead soldiers (not to mention civilian casualties). It baffles me that you can read about this successful operation, where the U.S. finally got the vengeance it sought for over 10 years, and have nothing to say but “Obama sucks.” God help all of you for being so ignorant and hateful.

      • tlm

        You are so right…Obama had nothing to do with it.

      • Paige Cohen

        Now with Pannetta in charge (a numbers guy) you can bet defense will shrink.

      • SemperFi46

        And it should . We have 6.630 military installations manned by 1.8 million service men and women. That is an outdated Cold War paradigm. In todays world we do not face an enemy like the Soviet Union, We need to cut all the fat in defense and be lean and mean-with quick and overwhelming reactionary forces and state of the art technologies. Most wars in our future will be fought with small elite Marine, Army and navy Seal forces and drones, smart bombs and other sophisticated support technologies, along with our submarine and aircraft carrier groups. There is plenty of room to cut our defense budget in half if we only have the will!

      • scot

        Timm, one example please of Obama eliminating our Military, just one is enough. You do not have one, fool. Bush failed and Obama succeeded. Now go home.

      • Chris

        Whoever thinks that drones will be the primary force in future conflicts is an idiot. They are only useful in an environment in which the enemy’s own air defenses are eliminated, and even then only until such a time as the enemy is able to block the signal from the operator’s room to the drone itself. If small elite units were so good, why did the Nazi’s lose to the USSR? After all the German army was much better trained than the Russians, better equipped for the most part, and for the most part better supplied. Yet the larger Russian army defeated the German army. Not through tactical superiority but through the fact that the Russians could easily replace soldiers where Germany could not. While Germany dug itself a hole by taking on a two front war, based on your argument Germany should have been able to hold the Eastern Front yet it fell. If one does not learn from history, they are doomed to repeat it. Sorry if I don’t want a repeat of the past world wars.

        Bush Dropped the ball !
        Obam picked it up and ran with it !

        Bush quotes
        20. “The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him.” –Washington, D.C., Sept. 13, 2001

        19. “I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.” –Washington, D.C., March 13, 2002

      • Another Texas Coverup

        Was our military that inept under Bush that he couldn’t get him for 8 years? No, the bin Ladens and Bushes have strong family ties – that is why Bush didn’t go after Bin Laden. Our military could have taken him ouit anytime but Bush protected him. It is just like Texans to thank Bush for something he didn’t do.

      • EWard

        Done nothing? He stepped up the attacked on Al Queda, statistically…AND OSAMA WAS FOUND AND KILLED UNDER HIS DIRECTION…not Bush. It was Bush who told us that he didn’t think too much about Osama, and he wasn’t a priority. Iraq was.

      • Sheryle Bauer

        I agree 100%. O-dumma had NOTHING to do with ridding of the terrorist. Our military did all the work while our president was out golfing.

      • Deborah Singer

        I agree Timm!

      • Roez

        @ EWard what you mean by statistically is resources shifted from Iraq were put into Afghanistan, and there was a shift in the war effort. The places this information came from, Gitmo and the secret overseas prisons, were in place long before Obama scorned them during his campaign.

        If you can’t be genuine then you have no faith in your own beliefs. It’s as simple as that.

      • tdpwells

        common at 10:54 – let’s at least put those Bush quotes in context, shall we?

        “Bush: Who knows if he’s hiding in some cave or not. We haven’t heard from him in a long time. The idea of focusing on one person really indicates to me people don’t understand the scope of the mission. Terror is bigger than one person. He’s just a person who’s been marginalized…. I don’t know where he is. I really just don’t spend that much time on him, to be honest with you.”

        Bigger than one person. Do you think this is all over now that Bin Laden is dead? If so, you’re a fool.

        By the way, your anti-war friends are suspiciously hawkish of late. Amusing to watch your opinions flip on a dime based on who sits in the WH. At least Republicans are consistent in their desire for peace through superior firepower. Must burn you guys to know that the intelligence that led to Bin Laden’s death was taken from a detainee who was interrogated in prisons your side wanted shut down. Inconvenient fact, eh?

      • skystone

        shut up and rejoice…this has nothing to do with poltics

      • beefrank

        SemperFi46, what will happen if we have to go up against China, Russia, Iran or all three at the same time? It is a scenario that cannot be ignored.

      • RicoShay

        “I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.” March 13, 2002, President George Bush

      • EJ

        No, You would be the IDIOT, Obama ORDERED the attack on Bin Laden, Bush said “I don’t know where Bin Laden is and I don’t really care!”

      • Craig Anderson

        The President of the United States has/had practically no power or control over finding and eliminating OBL. Thanks to the CIA and our military for the intelligence and precision of the operation. The President only says “yes” or “no.”

      • kevind

        don’t forget these wise words from bush

      • vxp

        dear tmm….church a lot?

      • CASHUAL

        i worked under the bush administration in DC and bush didn’t do anything but rake in millions of dollars. he is a liar and a demon! his grandfather started the federal reserve which issues our money. we pay interest on every dollar, yes every dollar that they issue to the american people. how can you pay back, in full, interest on trillions of dollars issued and the total comes out to more than what is issued to our citizens. dumb people to privatize our monetary system. it should be owned by the american citizens and not some private intity. JP Morgan Chase Ceo was George Bush’s grand father and they have been robbing us since. it is time to take back our country through diplomacy and the Power of God! The “illuminati” is operating in our politacal system and running it as we speak. Face it, the news don’t really report what real america thinks. they just report what the lobyist approve of through authorization from the private companies. I don’t want some Donald Trump owning my health care system and benefiting finacially from my sweat and tears/blood. i want to own and control it. DO NOT LET THEM PRIVATIIZE ANYTHING ELSE IN THE GOVERNMENT. THAT IS LEGAL EXTORTION OF THE AMERICAN WEALTH THAT HAS BEEN BRUTALLY BUILT ON THE BACKS OF THE AFRO-AMERICAN SLAVES, ILLEGAL/LEGAL IMMIGRANTS, AND THE FINANCIALLY INSLAVED POOR PEOPLE OF THIS GREAT NATION. THE ILLUMINATI IS FLEXING THEIR FINANCIAL MUSCLE TO BREAK THIS COUNTRY AND ALLOW THE NEW WORLD ORDER TO OPERATE OPENLY AND OWN AND RUN THIS WHOLE WORLD. WAKE UP PEOPLE. GLEN BECK WAS FIRED FOR TELLING THE TRUTH AND NOT LOW RATINGS. PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED FOR REVEALING THE TRUTH. BUSH AND HIS VICE PRESIDENT WAS DEMONS AND STILL IS.

      Claudia, what did you do with that money?

      • Darwin

        Claudia you are a racist!

      • Steve Johnson

        Scott says…”Katie, would you like to be tortured – no you would not. The US has agreed not to torture, lest our own be tortured. But morals and your word, mean nothing to republicans. You cannot even admit that Obama gets credit for doing what Bushie boy could not do in 7 years.”

        Well Scott, the ignorant, knuckledragging regressives like yourself are just too mentally challenged to understand our enemies dont give a damn if we treat them “humanely” or not. They’ll torture, murder, behead and desecrate their prisoners even if we hold ours in the freaking Four Seasons, you ignorant cretin!! It’s imbeciles like you and your regressive inbred bretheren that continue to encourage the enemy by your pathetic and Pollyannish mewling about torture and treating those inhuman vermin like real people. Go save a tree and leave the fighting to the MEN who have the stomach for it and the will to win. It was waterboarding Khalid Sheikh Mohammed that started this ball rolling 4 years ago. During the Bush administration. Your messiah was just fortunate enough to be in office when it came to fruition. God save us from you regressives.

    • Katie Smith

      Also, if you’ve been watching and listening at all, you would know they are saying that the intel that led to this raid came from our old pal Kahlid Sheik Mohommed in 2005 after one of our so called “torture” interrogations – but oops! they don’t work do they????????? Get yourself informed.

      • Ward

        Bush had his chance and cried “STAND DOWN” so NOW you give Bush credit? Yet blame Obama for the economy he inherited? What do you call yourselves?

      • judy

        to scott, the “torture” that was carried out was the same that our own troops go thru in training. what we call torture is nothing compared to the inhumane way some countries treat their own citiens on a daily basis

      • Amy Willis

        LOL @ Scott asking Katie if she’d like to be tortured. What a ridiculous question. I’d suspect the answer, if one was deserved, would be that she nor any one else wants themselves nor their families blown to bits or beheaded by terrorists and, justly so, will go to whatever end not to watch our children suffer under the war islamic terrorists have perpetrated across the globe. I mean these ‘people’ are not hiding their intent and never have. So I suppose if one wants to terrorize they run that risk…heck I think people who defend terrorists should get their water wings on too.

      • Klaus Larry Fischer

        yup, and all the libs did was to rag Bush for it….

      • scott

        Katie, would you like to be tortured – no you would not. The US has agreed not to torture, lest our own be tortured. But morals and your word, mean nothing to republicans. You cannot even admit that Obama gets credit for doing what Bushie boy could not do in 7 years.

        repuks, go home and shut up and let the men continue to run things.

      • victor

        Scott….dream on! Do you think that because the US agrees not to torture our people would not???!!! Our enemies crash planes into building and saw people’s heads off on video for you to see. Don’t be so naive.

      • klg1956

        Hey Scott, if you are a terrorist, then it is a fact if caught you are most likely going to be tortured…terrorist, tortured, terrorist, tortured, they go hand in hand…remember Daniel Pearl? He was terrorized and tortured and beheaded….and we have the guy that beheaded him and by torturing him, we got this intel that led us to bin Laden, and killed him…intel we got years ago and was able to use it to find, capture and kill Osama for terrorizing and killing thousands of us on 9/11……get a grip Scott, you need your diaper changed…hey Obama, Scott needs a free diaper.

      • Roez

        Exactly. There are reports from the Pentagon that the information came from secret overseas prisons, Gitmo and involved questionable interrogation methods.

        If Obama had been in charge five to ten years ago there’s a solid question whether we would have ever obtained this information to start with. All Obama did was follow policy already in place, then jump all over his one hope for re-election.

        Seriously, how many times did he need to say, “I, me, mine” during his speech?” The only way Obama would know grace is if someone mistakenly typed it on his teleprompter.

      • tdpwells

        I love watching liberals sit back and bemoan the horrors of hurting terrorists while at the same time enjoying the safety that such tactics provide. It’ll never not be funny.

    • Sheila

      Yes. thank Obama for at least not “changing” the Bush Foreign Policy.

      • Jake

        @ Ward. Bush had his chance BEFORE 9/11 2001 ever happened… Hindsight is all great and fun, but the reality of it is that the interrogation methods used as a result of Bush’s policies are what eventually led to Osama’s death… NOT because of any of Obama’s policies. Obama inhereted a collapsing economy and reacted to it by kicking out the last few legs of support. He accelerated the collapse far faster than when Bush was president. Obama has gotta take credit for his policies sooner or later…

      • ward

        oh but he did change it – Obama actually followed through and ‘got ‘er done’ whereas Bush cried “STAND DOWN” when OBL was in his sights and let him go. But you still give the shrub credit? Oh but the Economy Obama inhereited is HIS fault. HYPOCRITES after HYPOCRITES.

    • Rick Hall

      Claudia, the original tip that led to the death of bin Laden was received during an interrogation session at Gitmo FOUR YEARS AGO.

      • Amy Willis

        A person would be hard pressed to find a liberal that would be willing to give Bush or our Military any credit. Obama set the stage last night while he almost broke his own arm patting himself on the back…its only going to become more insufferable. I’m curious why, if obama knew of bin laden’s location last August it took all this time for him to be ‘handled’. I guess obama’s ratings needed a boost or something. Who knows with this guy. Anyway, our Military ROCKS!!!

    • Ahmed Cao

      What took your messiah so long, and since you think Cheney planned the whole thing, why did your teleprompter reader even bother?

      • Amy Willis

        LOL hmmmm, great points!

    • TiminPhx

      You are just a petty, little person. And it’s no doubt as a Leftist you whined about Gitmo.

      By the way, the tip that started this search came from Gitmo, 4 years ago.

      Not that you care. You normally spit at the American Warrior, don’t you?

      • scott

        you are a wimp, TiminPHx. Democrats succeed and repuks failed, again.

        All repuks and teabatggers need to leave the Country now – you do not like the majority of Americans anyway and most of you are cowards like bushie and chenney. 5 deferrements for chenney and Alabama for bush – what tough guys. not.

        Scott – Let’s see how long your lovely country exists with out us Free Market Republicans funding your money sucking lives.

        LOL I think Scot needs to up the prozac.

      • dave

        Scott…now now…name calling will get you a time out! How did the Dems succeed? By allowing the military to act on intelligence info from 4 years prior when George W was in office? Oh, Obummy almost broke his arm patting himself on the back taking credit for just saying yes to a military operation. He probably thought he was authorizing a spending bill. Kind of like Col Blake in Mash…never knew what he was signging for when Radar pushed paperwork across his desk!

      @Claudia,it was the MILITARY that did it, our defense that Obama wants to cut funding for so badly so he can dump another percentage into the already 60% of our budget welfare and medicare programs. You don’t operate on facts, just your politics, too bad you’re so shallow.

      • Alan Eskew

        Ward, We need your fact cited, Bush never stood down the boys from OBL, Stop drinking the rancid cool aid. BO sits back and takes the credit for the ground work that the previous Admin. put in all the while BO and his allies (including you I suspect) attacked him and poo pooed on him and the very military that did it. BO was against the surge that worked he attacked the very heroes that did it. Snubbing the wounded for a photo op. And did his damnedest to stop the “Advanced Interrogations” that got us the info that brought him down. Hes a johnny come lately to the fight and now he get the cred for the job. IT TOOK 7 YEARS TO GET THIS JOB PLANNED AND DONE!! all the while BO and his nimrods did everything to stop it. Economy is effected by policies set by congress, Dems took congress over in 06, it goes down in 08. Not a coincidence.

      • ward

        too bad Bush had OBL in his sights and cried “STAND DOWN”. Too bad Obama has the balls to actually follow thru and get this guy. Hypocrites.

      Sorry to correct you but this mission was begun 4 years ago uncer Bush’s tenure. Obama nearly followed through with what was already under way. Thankfully he didn’t interfere in the proceedings of intelligence gathering that led to this action.

      • Marco

        Does it really matter in the end, OBL is DEAD at the hands of the United States of America. United we Stand… get that through your heads.

      • You're wrong

        MAcha you are wrong, this operation was started 2 years ago right after Obama ordered Panetta to get OBL – stop trying to credit Bush for something he didn’t do. Bush was inept in every way and this country is still paying for his incompetence.

      • Debbie

        No, you are wrong….get your facts straight…my son is a part of it and it was 4 years ago…what’s your proof? Ignorance is incredible!!!

      • Roez

        “You’re W” following right into Obama’s re-election speech last night, which in my opinion would have done more for him if his writers had been a little less selfish. I swear, you would have thought Obama was in the operations room running a joystick with a trigger on it.

        Obama didn’t start the hunt for Osama by telling anyone to get him. That was well underway and in place for years and years.

      • tdpwells

        Ignorant person at 11:22 – last time I checked, Obama wasn’t president in 2007 when we found out the real name of the courier. Nor was he president in the aftermath of 9/11 when we got the pseudonym for the courier via those interrogation tactics you guys cried about.

        Surprised the left isn’t considering this fruit from a poisonous tree, to be honest. But then, that’s not politically expedient, so of course they’re all national security hawks now that it suits them. Code Pink, where are you?

      I’ll accept its 100 percent Hussien Obama’s responsiblity since he was in office when it happened if you accept that since he was in office when the economy melted down its 100 percent his responsiblity as well

      • 100% wrong

        Bush started a war based on lies that have cost our country trillions – that is the reason for the failed economy – a failed Bush presidency. 100 percent of ecnomists agree on this – Bush drove the country into the ground, you are lucky Obama is there to get it right back on track just like Clinton did after the first Bush fiasco. Texans are notorious for finger pointing and not taking responsibility for their mistakes – remember “mission accomplished.”

      • Indyvoter

        @100% wrong

        You are 100% lying, much like a typical Democrat. The only reason why Obama succeeded here is because he didn’t change any of Bush’s foreign policy, as much as he wanted to. Turns out Bush was correct. Obama has put this country in huge deficits and trashed our economy and you have the nerve to still blame Bush.

He supports HAMAS…( a huge terrorist group in Palestine) by giving them 8MILLION $$$$ He does NOT support Israel..and just keeps helping the Enemy. How can u in all honesty, and decency say that Osama#2 should get any praise for this?????? ARE U JUST IGNORANT..OR are u like all Liberals…that wear Obama Blinders and will NOT see the Wrong this man has done to this OUR USA???? Wake up for Gods Sake…… GEORGE W. BUSH AND THE US MILITARY GET THIS VICTORY…….NOT YOUR OBAMA………!!! plus…Claudia?? explain to me why OBAMA supposedly disposed of Osama’s body??????// WHY? Why not let the public..and ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT LOST LOVED ONES ON 911 SEEEEEE THE PROOF??????? He is such a liar..and has done nothing for the good of OUR America.

      • victor

        If you are sooooooo naive as to think the military geniuses we now have in the administration made any difference in the ongoing operations (other than trying to and in some cases downsizing them) you need to get an education. Operations like these take YEARS to develop.

      • Indyvoter

        At least Bush had the nerve to take on Osama. Clinton was too busy adulterating and partying in his White House to go after him. Thanks to Bush, Obama had plans and the military already there on hand to pull off this task.

      • George Kelley

        Obama was against the war, but to his credit he carried out Bush’s policies on the war.

      • dave

        Obummy said yes when presented with the military operation which was the result of 10 years worth of intelligence collection and interrogation tactics started under Bush! Just another “Fact”. You make it sound as if Obummy went out on the mission himself..in fact he was playing golf.

      Clinton could have gotten him, duh, but he didn’t want to offend the Suadis because Clinton didn’t want oil to go up, so duh, just like Ollie North said decades ago, “bin Laden is the most dangerous man on earth.” Look for gas to go to $6 a gallon now, since we still get all that oil from the Saudis, and Obama has done NOTHING to alleviate the status, and even last month elected to CUT military spending, just like Clinton. Hurray for the Navy.

        so they got the info in 05 but couldn’t get him until 2011? Makes sense doesn’t it tool…the truth is the waterboarded him over 180 times…he didn’t give away the name of the courier…until 1 1/2 years later..through normal interrogations..ie ..talking to him?? try to spin it any way u can…informed…curious george needs credit now…but takes no credit for the mess he left Obama? informed? LOL

    • victor

      The democrats succeeded…!!!!! LOL…with the current president all but eliminating the “war on terror” phrase because it was politically incorrect for him and his “sensitive” base. funny how the phrase is all over the news today. The continued operations started by Bush finally have paid off. Obama is just lucky to have been around at the right time. Democrats are notoriously wimpy when it comes to actually putting up a fight and our current commander in chief more so than most.

    • klg1956

      Actually, Claudia, it was Gitmo detainees who were interrogated that got this intel..so when you say it wasn’t Bush, Bush established this form of incarceration and interrogation for terrorists, which lead to bin Laden’s capture and kill, remember, Claudia, when Obama ran on closing Gitmo within the first year of his Presidency, and all detainees given fair trials in civilian court? Gitmo is still there, and it was Bush who caught bin Laden, and Osama taking credit for it…oh, sorry, Obama taking credit for it, like always, blame Bush or take Bush’s credit! He is a sorry excuse for a Prez and you must be on life support, brain dead I mean, if you can’t critically think which you have most sincerely proved!

Now you all come out of the woodwork and try to take credit for the capture of Bin Laden. The ignorance of some people is incredible!!!

    • Don Ingram

      You just showed your ignorance and how miss informed you are about the gulf war. After all the congressional hearings that went on concerning President Bush and the war, not one shred of evidence was produced that President Bush made money off this war.

      This wasn’t a Bush or Obama victory, it was a victory for our Country. We need to sincerely congratulate President Obama.

He did not scrub the mission to get Bin Laden.

      Wow! Barry baby boy Obama is following every crumb Bush & Cheney left behind. Why? Because he is inept at everything he attempts to lead.

    • Steve

      According to other press reports, the intelligence gathered for this mission was obtained from a Gitmo detainee 4 years ago. The CIA had been following Bin Laden’s courier. That is how they found him in Pakistan. Does 4 yr old info get credited to Obama? What about the SEALs? How about we call it even? Bush/Obama vicotry

    • Paula

      No Claudia. President Bush allowing waterboarding at Gitmo got the info needed to find Bin Laden. If Obama would have had his way (closing of Gitmo, Osama would never have been caught.

      Obama couldn’t pull the cork out of his own butt with both hands. Obama has repeated said he wouldn’t kill Bin Laden (look it up). The only credit Obama gets is NOT dismantling Gitmo and the great military coalition of SEALS, Delta, Marine Recon, Rangers, etc., that President Bush had assembled. It was that team which nailed Bin Laden. Obama is an idiot and make sure you speak his name when you are pumping 6 dollar/gallon gas or buying groceries that have quadrupled in size.

        There are internatiolnal laws about abuse of prisoners and I certainly wouldn’t want American prisoners to get worse treatment then they already do.

      You are too myopic to see things clearly. The US military had been tracking a courier in Pakistan for 4 yrs, waiting for him to reveal where OBL was hiding.
      Obama is an innocent bystander in all of this. The pieces were put in place during the Bush administration and he rebuilt our intelligence capabilities after Clinton degraded them. Do you leftist nuts not even have enough decency to give the man his due.

    • Lee

      Bush kept the heat on and virtually created a vacuum in which Mr. Bin Laden had to live. So give the man a little profit. And Claudia’s snarky comment about Bush making money off the war is totally ridiculous! Show us how, if you are going to make random unsubstantiated remarks like that!

      Claudia, you are a simplistic fool to truly believe those words

    • VApatriot

      You are right it wasn’t Bush. But it wasn’t the idiot in the white house now either. It was the military that got the information through interrigation. Oh yeah –that happened while Bush was in office and allowed us to defend this country. We can[t even do that anymore.

    • Francis

      It was Obama who stated(when running for President) that Gitmo & the enhanced interrogation techniques used to extract possible vital intel(such as that secured which assisted in finally locating bin Laden) were all going to be shutdown immediately once he became President. It was a campaign promise. He also promised to remove the U.S. military presence from the Middle East. He didn’t. So the very Bush policies he promised to shutdown/reverse in fact were crucial in locating Osama bin Laden. Btw, the team that took out bin Laden was the very same team that captured Sadaam Hussein.

      Credit definitely goes to Obama but the tools in place were courtesy of Bush. I’m
      just thankful that Obama didn’t keep his campaign promises(at least in this case).

      was obtained, thank God he did not get his way and that is how they

    • Red in Denver

      Nasty, partisan comment, Claudia. Two of the things Obama opposes (Guantanamo & waterboarding) were responsible for the intelligence which allowed Obama to make the decision to act. I don’t mind giving credit to Obama for acting on the intelligence, but you, if you were a well-informed, truthful person, would give GWB credit for those things which produced the information on where UBL was hiding.

    • Jerry in Tampa

      Something tells me that Claudia has blonde hair.

    • MReeder

      Had candidate Obama had his way, President Obama would not be a spectator dancing in the end zone today. Credit to Obama for ordering the raid, but the information thread that led to the courier that finally led to bin Laden was first obtained back in 2004 through the use of waterboarding. Intelligence continued to be enhanced by additional information obtained through the same means. We were beginning to close in on the compound by 2007. Nor did Obama issue any fresh order to kill bin Laden; he merely reaffirmed a standing order from President Bush. For Obama to claim credit for finding UBL is equivalent to claiming credit for oil production that began under Bush, which Obama has since curtailed. The real credit for this operation properly goes to the men and women of the CIA and the Seals who entered the compound and pulled the trigger. But they would have never been in that position without the “harsh” interrogation techniques ordered by Bush. That information, incidentally, is being transmitted by such obviously rightwing organizations as MSNBC, The Daily Caller, Associated Press and Washington post.

      To Claudia, you are as ignorant as they come. What money was Bush making. Scott – Obama benefitted from the interrogation methods that Bush used, and how do you suppose you would extract information from a terrorist, by kissing them you dope. And, Common, Bush did not drop the ball, the only place Obama ran was most likely to the nearest golf course. And Obama did not know where Bin Laden was either. You people are so naive. I bet if you were in trouble and needed help you would be the first to scream like a pig for the police to come and help you.

    • common

      You are 100% correct. This explains how Obama succeeded where Bush failed.


    • cashual

      bush isn’t great at nothing but extorting money from the american people for the benefit of being highly regarded by the “ILLUMINATI” during the reign of the new world order aka the political system of the anti-christ. Obama had the balls to kill the demon called bin laden without pakistans approval, per CNN. Pakistan has been and always was supporting bin laden. that is why they are mad at us for going in and killing him. they was never gonna let us get him and Obama said forget that and went in on his on will and authourity. bush allowed bin laden to do what he did to raise gas prices and make normal americans choose between gas or feeding their children and now they are taking away foodstamp program too maybe. talking about financial slavery and political oppression on the american people. i worked in his administration in DC and he is a crook, straight up crook and i am from poor america born and raised. i know a crook when i see one. i lived with them all through my community in my adolescence. i have family members doing 45 years in the state and fed. penal systems. i choose a honest route in life and education to beat poverty. how does buildings falling, that don’t house oil or oil products, give anyone reason to raise gas prices? dumb people believe that. it takes fuel the same amount of miles and same vehicles and transfers as before. the gas companies,,,exxon, shell…etc. are making huge profits. that tells you that they are riipping off the american people. greed is driving up gas prices and the illuminati is the guilty party. gas prices should never be allowed to surpass $2.00 a gallon /premium or super. my friends gas to get to work monthly expense is more than their one bedroom apartent rent…

The gas companies you moron. you really think Bush had control of them? no he didn’t they went up so that Bush can be blamed for going to war ya i agree gas should not have gone up that far but guess what your blaming the wrong person. Im srry that your friend spends alot of money on gas i do to, i even use the premium unleaded because thats all my car can use. But bush isnt who to blame is the gas companies its even high rite now bacause of the conflict in Israel and the countries around it.

    • Clint

      No no no you are mistaken. Bush wanted to say yes but could not because Chaney told him to no do not kill him. Chaney was the one who was holding all the Intel about Osama and everything else. Chaney was making money. He use to be the President of Halliburton a company that goes into third world countries and puts in utilities to make in more modernized. Not everything is Bushes fault, ya he could have ignored Chaney but something alot worse could have happened that Bush didnt want.

  • keshia

    I totally agree with Claudia..it was not Bush!!! No, Timm you are the idiot!! All praise goes to our troops and Pres. Obama!! GREAT JOB!! BTW, what the hell did Bush do anyway???

    • Capn Jack

      According to news reports, the intelligence about the Osama compound was first generated four years ago through a Gitmo detainee, who was subjected to enhanced interrogation techniques.
      I want to thank those that were responsible for keeping Gitmo in operation and for using the enhanced interrogation techniques.
      This all occurred under Bush’s watch. Your name says it all.

    • Danny Boy

      If you read past the headlines and white house press releases you would know that this was a 5-10 year operation!! Which began with intel gathered from high level detainees captured and held at Guantanimo!! You know the place your messiah wanted to close down??? None of this would be possible if we did not have the assets and tools that were put in place by the Bush people…like Gitmo and military bases in Afghanistan etc.. These things don’t happen overnight .. I do commend Obama for continuing the Bush doctrine and not do what Clinton did and just fire tomohawk missiles…Kudos to the Prez for that….but lets not forget this was a ten year operation. Don’t be a simpleton

    • Literacy

      I thought Obama inherited this mess and hunt from Bush? The intelligence that made this happen was gathered at Gitmo, a place Obama vowed to close (until he realized that we don’t live in Candyland and some evils are necessary) and GWB opened. Obama deserves credit, but Bush and the military deserve more. Read a book.

    • Sheila

      Bush got Saddam and saved the Iraqi people….duh Keshia

    • Klaus Larry Fischer

      Obama has been against the war, and the military since his political career began. He opposed the initial invasion of Iraq, opposed the serge, opposed going to Aghanistan, Pakistan. He voted against body armor, against kevlar upgrades, personal blowout bags, military bonuses, and the list goes on and on and on…………..

    • Lady Angelique

      He started the war on terror that Obama is finishing up. All the credit should to the Navy Seals who did the job.

      • gloria

        What about Clinton who let him get away

      • Jared

        There’s no war on terror……Obama can’t even say ‘war on terror’ It’s offensive to muslims…..

      • clementine

        Amen, GO NAVY; these servicemen deserve the best; the politicians that we have today that have NEVER served in the military do not understand. The politicians are abusing our tax dollars with free medical, outrageous retirement and some don’t even par the IRS their due TAXES. YET, these idiots are cutting our military, cutting our space program and cutting our Medicare/Social Security
        and causing our dollar to decline in value. They even have the nerve to give billions of our TAX dollars to foreign countries!! Enough—we need to CHANGE BACK to REALITY in 2012!!!

    • MDWhite

      Obama didn’t “do” anything other than give a nod and watch it all on a jumbotron. Brave talk from and a lot of credit to someone who detests the military and never wore a uniform.

      • Larry D. Crumbley

        Amen to your comment,a nd again I say AMEN!!!! He is a disgrace to the “TERM” Commander-in-Chief”.

      • ward

        Bush could have given that same nod – but what did the cowardly shrub say “STAND DOWN”. and it look a Democrat and 10 years to finally ‘get ‘er done.

    • Diane Emmerich

      Keisha, your messiah obama is nothing but an empty suit. It was President Bush and his vigilance that prevented another attack. It was his resolve and perserverance and our info from gitmo that culminated in this success. I am grateful, however that obama took time out from golf and WH parties to approve the attack.

    • pete

      keshia kenta, we know where your brain is at……………..ya go right ahead and praise the great obamame.. May get u some more hope and change. Oh almost forgot, make sure u are facing east when you pray and praise the great on……..obamame

    • Don Ingram

      If you don’t know by now, you’ll never know. God Bless George Bush and His father.

      • ward

        why did Bush have OBL in his sights and then say “STAND DOWN”.? Why didn’t he get him when he had the chance? Try to explain that one. Right wing is so full of cowards who refuse to see the facts. I’m so glad I’m not “one of you”.

      • Wonkish Rogue

        We’re glad of that too Ward. You have no idea how glad.

    • RB

      You Dirty WH*&^E!!!!!!!!!!

      • Larry D. Crumbley

        RB that is okay WARD is allowed to say anything “STUPID” he wants to say. That is what makes this nation what it is. even though as a lefty he is in the party that cannot find time to do anything right for this nation, and they are the ones that have allowed the job base get destroyed, and well I could go on, and on, but why do I have to.—THEY HAVE MADE IT CLEAR FROM DAY ONE—“HOPEY, AND CHANEY” IS ABOUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BEING LEFT WITH NOTHING BUT CHANGE, AND NO HOPE WHEN THIS SO-CALLED PRESIDENT IS DONE. I GUESS YOU LOVE THAT YOUR MAN IS CONTROLLED LIKE A PUPPET BY GEORGE SOROS UHH WARD? YOU DO NOT MIND THAT NOW DO YOU?

      • okieman01

        I may not like her comment but calling her names doesn’t solve anything

      • ward

        Oh that’s the right wing way don’t you know – if you can’t debate on the facts then just call ’em filthy names. So typical of you knuckle draggers – yea I called you a knuckle dragger.

      • Wonkish Rogue

        Nobody cares Ward. Your opinion is worthless as this president.

    • dave

      Bush set up the policies that allowed us to detain and interrogate detainees at GITMO, set up Homeland Security, Cyber Command, etc. It was his policies that got us here even though he wasn’t in office when they finally bore fruit. Unfortunately, your boy was. I do give him kudos….he finally made a decision and said yes; although, he probably thought it was a spending bill he was approving!

      • ward

        too bad when the shrub had his chance to “get” OBL he cried “STAND DOWN’. Too cowardly to even take out USA #1 Enemy. It took a democrat and 10 years to finally capture this piece of work.

      • Wonkish Rogue

        Nice fantasy Ward. A Democrat got this president. LOL! Yeah I wonder how many members of Seal Team 6 vote Democrat.

    • Wonkish Rogue

      Obama had the good sense (poll reading) to follow the path that President Bush laid out. Those harsh interrogation techniques decried by Obama and Co are what garnered the information that led to Bin Laden’s hideout. Stop with you fantasies.

    • Red in Denver

      Keshia, ready my reply to Claudia. It was GWB who created Guantanamo and who approved waterboarding — two things Obama does not agree with — which lead to UBL being found.

      Have you been keeping up with current events these past several years?

    • pineapplecake

      Bush captured the terrorist and got the information that lead to the carrier that led to osama, duh!


    Keshia And Claaudia;
    This should have been taken care of long before Bush. Learn your history Our great miltary and other key leadres had Bin Laden in there sites ready to take him OUT during the CLINTON adminstraion. But he did not have the curage OR BALLS to give the word. If he would have done so then maybe 9/11 would have never happened. So give praise where praise is due THE NAVY SEALS took care of this issue.

    • Klaus Larry Fischer

      right on Jimbo, and they are the only ones who should get credit! Obama was doing what he does best on Sunday, he played golf.

      • A.Men

        Thanks Navy Seals and CIA. Bush gets the credit for Gitmo and waterboading and going after terrorists in Iraq and killing Sadam Hussein and on and on. Thanks President Bush.

    • GoldStarSister

      Keshis and Claudia,
      Jimbo is correct. Bush”s error was in believing that Bin Laden would surrender when we had him in Tora Bora. Silly decision to show mercy to a man who didn’t understand REAL mercy. Bush deserves accolades because he built the military back up after Clinton with a lead from Bush’s Dad nearly killed it. Obama never wanted either war. He wanted to free all the detainees – funny, that’s where the info came from to finally get Osama. Pay attention ladies: Obama will now begin to defund the military….he has little support there as he is a weak military leader

      • SamIam

        Bush had a dead or alive policy.

        Pay attention, they have been cutting back DoD since the 80’s. And DoD has given up over 400Billion this year and took a 10% cut last year.

        Throw the baby out with the bath water, eh?

    • Sailright

      I’m no huge Obama fan but you at least have to give him the credit for having the nerve to give the order. The rest of the credit goes to the military and intelligence that have been under fire by progressives, and the media for a long time… interesting that they’re dead silent on the issue with a Democrat in office. Bush would have almost certainly have had “questions” from the NYT opinion page about the legality of the move. CBS still hasn’t released the live mike gaff. How many nano seconds would it have take for the Bush release??? But we as individuals need to give credit where credit’s due instead of jabbing back and forth. Maybe the only was we get real leadership is to demonstrate it ourselves. So here:

      Way to Go Navy Seals and Mr President!


      • Ronnie

        Note he gave the order to “Kill” Bin Laden…Why?….So he wouldn’t have to deal with his own messy policies about trials in NYC or Gitmo…

      • Dot Williams

        I give no credit to Obama for any of this. Bush set the policies in place to capture or kill this Islamic murderer. Obama is President Zero in this whole thing. The media will spin it to look like he gave a damn, which he did not. He even said bin laden’s body was handled in accordance with Islamic custom which requires a speedy burial. Who cares about the rights of this murderer who killed over 3,000 people. Who side are you on Obama?

      • D

        Bush had the nerve to take us to war. That is alot more nerve then Obama had to show.

      • bw

        Really? The order has been there since 9-11. Idiot! There was even a $27 million reward. Obama had the nerve to give the order? Uneducated blabbering is what’s wrong with this country.

      • Diane Emmerich

        I’m sure the first thing that came to obama’s mind was that this would be a feather in his hat for re-election. I give him very little credit. It was an easy decision to give the kill order…his mantra….never waste a good crisis and always look for a way to boost the polls. The real heros are our military, all of them and President Bush…still my president!

      • Finally

        The order was given by Bush in 2001. All Obama had to do was nod his head. With sinking polls, it was a no-brainer. Thank goodness he did not decide to vote “present” this time or dither as with his decision on Lybia.

        US intelligence and military deserve great credit and recognition.

    • MisPattii

      High 5 Jimbo! The truth has been spoken. God Bless Our Troops and Americans that have balls!

  • RJ

    It wasn’t Bush or Obama. It was the US military and intelligence. Why does everything have to be political?

    • Paige Cohen

      It has to be political….Obama wants to be re-elected. Last night Obama must have said “I” a dozen times.

      • SemperFi46

        All preseidents take credit or get blamed for what happens on their watch-the bigger picture here is that our supreme special forces along with the CIA planned this operation and carried it out spectacularly. For one day can we not come together and give credit to Obama, Bush and our warriors who sacrifice for us every day? save the petty partisan rants for tomorrow!

      • SamIam

        Obama’s massive failed policies outweigh the death of UBL.

        And his massive use of “I’s” is silly…when will he convert his “eyes” to “WE”?

        He takes credit at every corner…sad to see such a shallow person at he helm.

    • TX05

      Amen, RJ! President Bush, who simply started the mission nine years ago, doesn’t deserve the credit. President Obama, who simply broke his campaign promise of ending the war, doesn’t deserve the credit either.
      The only ones who truly deserve credit here are the brave men and women of the United States military who have put their lives on the line overseas for almost 10 years now so that political figureheads such as Bush and Obama can place crowns on their heads and claim credit for something they did not do. It was not a US president who found Bin Laden, it was military intelligence units. It was not a US president who designed a tactical stratedy to eliminate Bin Laden, it was military commanders. And it most certainly was not a US president who killed this dangerous man, but finely trained American soldiers. Those are the true heroes in this story. Yet all the headlines are contibute this deed to either Bush or Obama.
      Our media in this country is such a joke! But, after reading comments on the end of this article, the real joke is all the American citizens who actually believe that either Bush or Obama deserve all the credit.

      • dave

        I beg to differ. The Military definitely deserve credit! I am a retired intelligence officer and the men and women are incredible. That said, it was Bush’s policies that led to this day. If it weren’t for him, I doubt we would be rejoicing today.

  • tdpwells

    Osama wouldn’t be dead right now if the intel gathered after 9/11 and in 2007 when Bush was the one running the show hadn’t been obtained. It was Bush’s people (most of which Obama kept on – one smart thing he did) in the military that did all the hard work. People that the anti-war left were holding up as war criminals. Now the anti-war left is suspiciously hawkish now that their guy is in power. To say that what Bush put into place had nothing to do with the ultimate death of Bin Laden is ignorant at best.

    I hope we waterboarded the terrorist who gave up the courier’s name.

  • Kristy

    God Bless you President Bush!! YOU knew all along we’d get bin laden, and NEVER ever ONCE Waivered in your beliefs. YOU Had faith in the USA always,and you never stopped believing in our Military!!!! We miss you !

    Thank you to the CIA and the Navy Seals….job well done.


    George W Bush deserves a lot more credit then BO, BO wanted to shut down Gitmo, the tip for this op came from Gitmo. Just like Bill Clinton, BO wants to cut up our military and make it less of a weapon. A typical left wing move. W got blames for using the surplus Clinton left. That surplus was a result of the cuts Slick Willie made to our defense to apease his backers. Where does be a socialist, left wing
    idealist get you. No where fast. Way to go GW, Way to go Seal Team 6, Way to go America!

    • DanaDee

      Isn’t it just incredible how Obama takes full credit for this? After all, had it not been for the efforts of many LONG before Obama’s “reign” Osama would still be on the loose. Obama has absolutely NO CLASS–and neither do his supporters, many of whom I know!!


    cludia go back to sleep, you have missed ..quite a lot….however you must be …what 13..or fifteen years old…

    Our leaders keep telling us we are not at war with Islam. We had better be at war with Islam, they are certainly at war with us.

    Take a look at Muslim activism around the U.S.; tally up the honor killings here, the efforts to implement Sharia law here and in England (where they are succeeding), the attacks on our military within the U.S., and the complete lack of religious toleration they exercise toward others.

    Americans are clueless about Muslims and their goals.

  • Paige Cohen

    Okay – you have to give credit to Obama to be smart enough to continue with Bush 43’s policy towards terrorism (in spite of being hypocritical). Continuity paid off. Bush laid the groundwork. Rusmfeld perfected the special forces. Intelligence was improved over the years. It all came together well. As for Obama….still can’t stand him. The economy still sucks. Osama’s death will not grow jobs, improve the economy, and save this country from Obama’s intent on taking it down a notch.

  • jake34

    Bush is now and always will be an incompetent egotist. Had he not gotten us into an illegal war in Iraq based on lies and contrived intel, we could have concentrated on Bin Laden and Al Qaeda from the start instead of spreading our resources so thinly between the search for Bin Laden and Iraq. Perhaps we could have saved the lives of thousands of our brave American kids, not to mention the innocent non-Americans killed during his folly in Iraq.

    • allen

      Obama is the incompetent egotist. The first year of his presidency was spent in front of the camera giving prime time speeches about nothing. That’s what an egotist does, similar to an egotistical dictator. If Obama had his way he’d eliminate the news media and turn MSNBC into the State Run News Agency, which pretty much would be ran at his direction.

      Incompetent? Yes, Obama is very incompetent. His incompetence cost Libyans thousands of lives because he sat on his hands for weeks wondering what to do about the crisis in Lybia. His incompetence has made made America go further into debt, with the highest unemployment, and the highest gas prices in history.

      It’s easy to sit back and drive the Cadillac that Bush built. It’s easy to sit back and say, “Yes, go ahead and pull the trigger”. Good job Seals. Good job CIA. Good job Bush for building this machine that finally got Bin Laden. Too bad you weren’t the one to take the credit. You certainly deserve it.

      • jake34

        OK, Allen, whatever…

        But in 8 years did Bush even come close to getting Bin Laden? No, he was intent on his illegal war in Iraq

      • DaveP

        Gee, Jake: Is that illegal war for oil in Iraq anything like the current illegal war for… what, now? … in Libya?

    • dave

      Illegal war in Iraq? The one you mentioned was for oil…oh and just who is profitting from that war? Certainly not the US public…at last glance, gas was over $4 a gallon….must be Bush huh? Oh but wait….isn’t profitting from wartime illegal? Certainly this would show up somehow? Oh you can’t find any details? Just make up your own facts as you go huh?

  • TSgt Thomas

    I was an Intelligence operative in the military for 20 years, retiring in 2004. When I heard we had killed UBL I just started to cry. I thought of all the individuals in the military who have sacrificed so much in tracking this terrorist. True there will be others to take his place but they will also know we will hunt them until they are captured or dead. God bless America and Thank you G.W. Bush for building the structure to get it done….Mission Accomplished

    • dave

      i, too, was an intelligence officer in the Air Force, 21 years! I too felt the same emotions. God Bless G W Bush!

  • SemperFi46

    This shows the greatness of the USA and its ability for peaceful transition and continuation of power by our presidents. Both Obama and Bush deserve some credit but the majority of the credit belongs to our brave Armed Forces and intelligence officers that have been making the ultimate sacrifice in our name!
    OOrah to those seals and especially the one who took the most famous hot in recent Amercian history!!1

  • Charlie Harper

    At least George Bush can console himself be remembering that he brought Martha Stewart to justice.

    Muslims will shake your hand and smile at you and then when you turn around they will stab you in the back with their other hand.

    Pakistan has been double dealing with the US. I’m glad we did this with out giving them any notice until after the first shots were fired. Now we should stop giving them billions of dollars and let them fend for themselves. Bottom line: Pakistan was hiding Bin Laden.

  • desilu

    Thank you President Bush! Although Osama wasn’t captured on your watch, you and your administration deserve the credit for the dedication,determination and steadfast goal of fulfilling your promise to the American people to bring justice and punishment for the horrible acts this man orchastrated.
