Kerry Releases Medical Records, Oops, No

In anticipation of increased criticism of Obama’s mysterious handling of the request for 40,000 more troops by his hand-picked commander, General McChrystal, Senator Kerry and his colleagues trotted out a story this morning that the whole terrorist problem has been caused by the failure of American soldiers to capture Osama bin Laden. Of course, this failure occurred during the Bush presidency. Give me a break. The problem of Islamic fanaticism and terrorism is squarely in the hands of the current administration, as are all other problems we face. Stop acting like babies and stop whining.

Senate report: Bin Laden was 'within grasp'

Review could be seen as warning against opponents of a troop surge now

Nov . 29, 2009 MSNBC (Excerpt)

WASHINGTON - "Osama bin Laden was unquestionably within reach of U.S. troops in the mountains of Tora Bora when American military leaders made the crucial and costly decision not to pursue the terrorist leader with massive force, a Senate report says.

The report asserts that the failure to kill or capture bin Laden at his most vulnerable in December 2001 has had lasting consequences beyond the fate of one man.

Bin Laden's escape laid the foundation for today's reinvigorated Afghan insurgency and inflamed the internal strife now endangering Pakistan, it says.

Staff members for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's Democratic majority prepared the report at the request of the chairman, Sen. John Kerry, as President Barack Obama prepares to boost U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

The Massachusetts senator and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate has long argued the Bush administration missed a chance to get the al-Qaida leader and top deputies when they were holed up in the forbidding mountainous area of eastern Afghanistan only three months after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks."

I think it's about time they establish a 12 step program for Democrats who are addicted to BUSH BASHING.

Being PC, I hope I haven't offended the many fine people who benefit from real 12 Step programs for other addictions and difficulties.

I really thought that sooner or later it would stop sometime into the Obama Administration but apparently some folks are just hopelessing ADDICTED to it.
Let's apply for Federal Funding to establish a clinic and weekend retreat program for BUSH BASHERS.
It is getting sickening. They need to grow up and accept responsiblity for their OWN DECISIONS.

Kerry seems to forget that Bill Clinton turned down a chance more that once, to get Bin Laden when the Sudanese Government wanted to hand him over to the US. 9/11 could have been avoided, had he taken him into custody. As for "El John" Kerry, the Jane Fonda Vietnam turncoat of my State of Massachusetts, I'm ashamed to admit that he represents my state. He's not only a terrible Senator, but a poor excuse for a human being. It's beyond my comprehension why this political hack keeps getting voted in.
