Obama: 'Ask Osama bin Laden If I Engage in Appeasement'

Posted: Dec 08, 2011 5:51 PM

As reluctant as I am to give him this one, I will admit that, as it happened during his watch, President Obama can count the death of Osama bin Laden as a win on his commander-in-chief resume. (Even though... the Navy SEALs were acting on years' worth of policy and intelligence initiated by the previous administr--oh, nevermind.)

But you can't base all of your foreign policy credentials on taking out OBL, Mr. President. Eliminating al Qaeda terrorist leaders doesn't have a whole lot to do with your policy on the Iranian nuclear threat to Israel, and you know it. Every time you use that victory as an evasive maneuver, its appeal wears increasingly thin.
