Certainly Obama deserves some foreign policy kudos. Bush or the neo-cons never got Pakistan to crack down in a serious way. Obama came into office and day one, bombed inside Pakistan, literally day one. Within a few months not only are the Pakis fighting the Taliban, they are going at it hard. I still don't like him, but for everyone talking smack about him bowing to Saudis and being weak, under cover he is getting things done in a major way. And there is no way of describing how hard it must have been to accomplish this.
