Allen West: “Bin Laden Being Dead is Not Foreign Policy”

True, Bin Laden's death is not foreign policy, BUT it is an indicator of an approach to foreign policy; it is a direct product of foreign policy. West is throwin' shade because his team didn't take Laden out. If Bush had done it West would not appear on tv with this statement

One doesn't need to be instructed to despise this fool, he does a good job of providing all that is required is liberal morons who need support groups and groupthink to find ways to support a clown who is destroying the very country they live in and they are too stupid to see it..something that is factored into his decisions. The man is a communist and he laughs at you fools for being so uneducated to the threat he presents and your naivete' in've been had and can't see it.

Aura----The day Obama was elected I went into a self-imposed news blackout because I wanted NOTHING to do with the run-up to his inauguration. There were many people (but sadly, not enough) who knew that Obama would be the disaster he is because of his Marxist background. Nobody had to be instructed to hate Obama-----his awful policies are reason enough to have disdain for this pretender.

You know not of what you speak.

That's kind of a stupid statement. You kinda missed the point, which is that the ONLY think obama can point to as a foreign policy coup is killing OBL.
And he ought to stop it, because he botched it up so badly.

Why is it stupid? He assassinated a guy that the US has been half-heartedly chasing for 10 years. I have yet to see Obama point to the killing as the totality of American policy. I HAVE seen him point to it as an accomplishment. And considering the fact that Bin Laden is the de facto reason/source/argument for our entire reason for being in the Middle East I think that Obama is right to point to that as an accomplishment. So I don't think that it's a stupid statement; I do think that perhaps you haven't thought about it enough. There will be graduate seminars based around the Bin Laden killing and its subsequent foreign policy products/ramifications.

This clip is a few days old but worth watching in its entirety. Appearing on “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren Thursday night, Congressman Allen West (R-FL) explained why “it’s insane” for the Obama administration to base their entire foreign policy on the death of Osama bin Laden.
