Setting politics aside in matters of national security interest and general welfare of our country is very hard to do, Democrat or Republican.

A: a president who executes laws that are on the books already, while encouraging (notice I didn't say executive privileging) others to understand his opposing viewpoints.

The Middle East has been in turmoil for hundreds of years. When their troubles affect our national security, then we should act.

9/11 was a terrorist action on American soil. The Bush administration, as well as the country at large, had difficulty in describing exactly who we were retaliating against.

A "war on terrorists" that bombed the Twin Towers is one I have always been for. Admittedly, a "war on terrorism" is harder to fight, as the target is changeable and nebulous.

I'm best considered an "armchair general" as far as war is concerned. I think any president is wise when he fully considers what his military advisors and intelligence agencies tell him. Setting politics aside in matters of national security interest and general welfare of our country is very hard to do, D

NY Times article, which has this one guy and his "assertions." As the article suggests, where's the "evidence" to back up his stories?

billgrr drinks this right up, because it fits the presidential narrative.

And billgrr always believes everything that comes out of this current administration, unlike that previous, oh-so-nasty administration.

Looky there, I found one source. Now is there at least one more? Is there another guy that will corroborate Khattala's statement about the video? Or is he on his own here?

"Mr. Abu Khattala, 41, wearing a red fez and sandals, added his own spin. Contradicting the accounts of many witnesses and the most recent account of the Obama administration, he contended that the attack had grown out of a peaceful protest against a video made in the United States that mocked the Prophet Muhammad and Islam.

"He also said that guards inside the compound — Libyan or American, he was not sure — had shot first at the demonstrators, provoking them. And he asserted, without providing evidence, that the attackers had found weapons, including explosives and guns mounted with silencers, inside the American compound."

Yeah, billgrr, LOL at you trying so hard to make yourself a credible source.

You really don't have a source, do you?

Just keep repeatin' it and maybe it'll come true...

America is falling faster than ever, as we speak....Welfare galore, failed relationships and communication, dwindling morals and values, no standards...people selling their souls to their addictions of ****, food, drugs, alcohol....Internet and the www making reality nothing but a delusional unreality. Political correctness and lowering of standards causing people to give up on their standards and morals...gay marriage, transvestites and prostitutes galore. If your child thinks they are the opposite sex in grade school in California, society says ok, and gives them a separate bathroom to use. No importance in family bonding anymore...praying, hanging out or eating dinner together. Rush rush rush for the world and society and leave leave leave the things that are most important. This is teaching future generations nothing but to spiral downwards faster than it already is.

In spite of billgrr's last post being yet another of his c/p's, I am compelled to disagree with his other post in one respect...

"You all were having fits that President Obama may have gotten one scintilla of credit for removing troops."

Uh, not everyone was having fits about President Obama getting credit. If anything, it's been Democrat lefties that have been having fits that President Obama would get all of the credit and none of the blame for everything ever done.

Sounds about right...

It is a shared legacy, billgrr. If Pres. Bush was wrong to get them in, Pres. Obama was wrong to advertise to the terrorist factions exactly when they'd be out. Does the term "military strategy" mean anything to the president? No, the term "political strategy" matters much more.
