  1. McCain commends Obama on bin Laden

    Sen. John McCain, a Senate hawk and President Barack Obama's GOP opponent in the 2008 election, praised the president Sunday night for approving a military raid that took out Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.

    McCain was briefed on the news by Defense Secretary Robert Gates before Obama's address.

    “I am overjoyed that we finally got the world's top terrorist," McCain said in a statement. "The world is a better and more just place now that Osama bin Laden is no longer in it. I hope the families of the victims of the September 11th attacks will sleep easier tonight and every night hence knowing that justice has been done. I commend the President and his team, as well as our men and women in uniform and our intelligence professionals, for this superb achievement.

    I doubt that very seriously.
  5. But you most likely voted for Cheney and he gave Obama praise earlier this morning . . . So much for Cheney's claim of Obama not being able to "take that 3AM" phone call . . .

    Former Vice-President Dick Cheney released the following statement on the death of Osama Bin Laden:

    "The death of Usama bin Laden at the hands of American forces is a victory for the United States and a tremendous achievement for the military and intelligence professionals who carried out this important mission. Their tireless work since 9/11 has made this achievement possible, and enabled us to capture or kill thousands of al Qaeda terrorists and many of their leaders. I also want to congratulate President Obama and the members of his national security team. At this moment when bin Laden has been brought to justice, we especially remember the sacrifice of the young Americans who’ve paid the ultimate price in defense of the nation, as well as the nearly 3000 Americans who lost their lives on 9/11. Al Qaeda remains a dangerous enemy. Though bin Laden is dead, the war goes on. We must remain vigilant, especially now, and we must continue to support our men and women in uniform who are fighting on the front lines of this war every day. Today, the message our forces have sent is clear — if you attack the United States, we will find you and bring you to justice."
