This was the largest terrorist attack on Americans before 9/11. "Maybe people are starting to forget," Flynn observed. "It doesn't seem to drive people crazy that the guy who did it and the guy who paid him to do it got away with it."

And: "Ten years from now, will we do the same thing to bin Laden?" Maybe. Last month, Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy called for a "jihad" against Switzerland, which passed a law banning the construction of mosque minarets. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley responded to question about Khadafy's jihad with a mild quip. Tripoli demanded an apology, threatened repercussions and won an apology from Crowley.

As Flynn sees it, Team Obama should have had a different reaction: "How about no?"
