Short of capturing and killing those two turkeys nothing we do will have a look of success.
Now, capturing and killing those two won't bring democracy to Afghanistan. It won't diminish the religious lunacy of the Taliban. It won't make the Karzai government stabile and non-corrupt. It won't keep future terrorists from re-establishing. But, it will allow a decent enough reason to depart.
Our purpose going there was in the first place to displace the Taliban Government and to capture OBL. We have achieved the first objective; but it is a hard one to hold on to that achievement.
OBL, well I don't know what to think. Dead? Living in Munich? Toronto? NYC?
I figure if he is alive somewhere, he is in a big city, wearing a business suit, and engaged in ordinary commercial banking. Hiding in plain sight as it were. Maybe we are turning over the wrong rocks.

Yes he should have been fired…What do I think of Obama and his administration….If you were to say that he was slow roasting small children in the fire place in the oval office I would probably agree with you.

As a 3 star told me years ago, military General's are no longer troops, they have become, in every sense of the word, politicians within ANY administration.
The General voiced his opinion, which was not tolerated by his CIC. The perogative of the CIC is to relieve the General, whcih he did.
I'm not a fan of the current Administration, but as the CIC, it was his call. All politics aside.
