3,520 days after Americans woke up to witness the largest mass casualty of a terrorist attack in our world history, we woke up to the news that the Administration of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner had killed Osama bin Laden, a mastermind and chief financier of the global terrorist network.

Last night, President Obama informed former President George Bush about the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden.  President Bush released this statement:

Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, […]

Here’s John Kasich in today’s Reuters story about his former praise of Lehman Brother’s CEO Dick Fuld:

“Fuld is an awesome guy,” Kasich told New York Observer for a September, 2001, story. “He is the kind of guy you want to go into battle with,” the article quoted Kasich as saying. “He is a great leader.”

Kasich backed away a little from his association with Fuld during his Reuters interview, saying: “I called him a good leader because of what he did after 9-11.”

Kasich, though, was interviewed for the story before September 11 and […]

Since Barack Obama was elected president, the opportunity to seize national security credibility from Republicans for the long term has been there for the taking, and awaiting only a few things. ?Capture or death of Osama Bin Laden is the big prize, of course. ?But the inevitable attempted terrorist attack on Barack Obama’s watch, and the Republican response to it, offers the same opportunity.

The Christmas Day attack has given Barack the best of all worlds. ?Thank God, the attack failed, hilariously. ?Just as hilarious has been the utterly predictable Republican attack in response, whose main effect is to […]

Back in the day before such calm leadership graced the White House this would be an opportunity to exploit the fears of the American people….Mouth breathing Obama bashing Palin sycophants only understand monosyllabic grunts that talk about Muslims, terr-rists, and war.? They don?t even recognize competent leadership when they see it.

I’m actually quite happy that Republicans came out the gate bashing Obama, even interrupting their Christmas […]

Another reason why the Bush administration was a total joke.? The mastermind of 9/11 was never tried.? Until Barack Obama became president.? I can’t think of a better place for the trial, although his lawyer will have a good argument for change of venue.? Can’t imagine a judge granting that, since trying him anywhere in the US would present the same problem.

Um. Wow. Did a wingnut blogger really just use a photo of the crater caused from flight 93 on 9/11 to make fun of John McCain?

That doesn’t seem very American to me. Exploiting the 9/11 tragedy and those heroes on that flight in this way. Shameful.

BTW and FWIW, I totally agree with Alo Konsen’s analysis of McCain’s chances.
