I don't think I am actually that close to RP because I know we have different stances on foreign policy. He was against the raid to kill OBL because it violated pakistan's sovereignty.. I could not care any less. But I wonder, if that raid did start a war with pakistan, would the libs on this site, so happy to give obama all the credit, defend the raid?
If it started a war with Pakistan? A meaningless hypothetical.
Speaking as a liberal, Obama gets credit for giving the go ahead. Since he authorized the operation, we must acknowleedge that he authoprized the operation. Its a tautological fact. However, this CIC order was at the tail end of a large multi year operation that had the contributions of 100s and perhaps 1000s of Americans. was the very tail. It's not that liberals were blowing Obama's horn over OBL, it's that conservatives were deeply chagrined that it happened on Abama's watch, so much so they were shedding tears for poor old OBL.
