Obama vs. Osama

Obama vs. Osama
By Ralph Peters

Promises aren't plans, Barack.

Name-brand journalists have let
Barack Obama make any claim he chooses about Iraq, Afghanistan or coping with terrorism without pinning him down for details. Yet many of his comments and positions seem stunningly naive about national security. Given that this man may become our next president, shouldn't he explain how he'd do the many impressive things he's promised?

This week, Obama claimed, again, that he'd promptly capture Osama bin Laden. OK, tell me how: Specifically, which concrete measures would he take that haven't been taken? How would he force our intelligence agencies to locate bin Laden? And he can't just respond, "That's classified."

He also claimed that fighting terrorism is a law-enforcement problem, not a military one (should we send the NYPD to Mosul and Kandahar?), and that the answer to terrorism is the approach taken after the 1993 World Trade Center attack, featuring conventional trials and prison terms.
That flaccid post-'93 response only encouraged terrorists - who are unfazed by the prospect of a US prison, where the quality of life's better than it was at home. The Clinton administration's hesitancy and softness gave us the subsequent attacks on the Khobar Towers housing complex in Saudi Arabia, on our embassies in East Africa, on the USS Cole and, ultimately, the events of 9/11.

The senator needs to tell us why it would be different now.

Obama is a stupid man who shows his ignorance everyday. He truly is not fit to be president, let alone a senator!

Bin Laden can go into the mountains at any time and hide. And many people must be protecting and hiding him. And he might be dead.

And global terrorists are a military jurisdicition. Obama doesn't have a clue about the world.

But isnt it funny that most of the high profile arrests have been done by law enforcement authorities.

How about this?

The Joint Terrorism Task Force, made up of FBI and NYPD. Read it.

Of course that is just for starters.

Your pal.
