He did not get us Osama! People keep saying that it was because of him, but it wasn't. He just happened to be pres. when we did get him. Bush was pres. when he urged us and got the rest of the govmnt to go after him, but it wasn't him who got Osama either. People keep giving the pres. full credit where it isn't his to receive.

Osama was still a waste of resources.
They're all independent cells, taking out Osama is like taking out the British Queen. Nothing really changes, except you've pissed off a bunch of people.

It wasn't meant to be a blow to take down the whole Al Qaeda organization. It was; however, a way to let everyone else know that nobody fucks with the US. And if you do, we will hunt you down and have our vengeance. We can't just let someone attack us and ignore it, we had to make an example of him, and that is what we did.

But Obama didn't have to persuade the military action it took, he just had to weigh the risks and sign off on the plan, it was the part he had to play.
Hitler; however, had to persuade the whole German nation to view his stance as the stance. If you didn't view it his way you were eliminated or put in one of the camps yourself, so its actually like comparing apples and oranges there.

I see, I haven't been on fj very long, but I learned that ppl will comment for thumbs and not get much. It is best to comment how you truly feel and say "I (dis)agree, b/c..." then people will recognize that you aren't being a thumbwhore and actually vote with their belief, usually earning green thumbs.

thank you, I got tired of people saying shit like "but, Obama got us Bin Laden." when he didn't. Bush pushed for vengeance and persuaded the people to call for revenge and the government does, but that doesn't mean he is perfect either. It felt necessary, especially with what doomish posted above me. hopefully others will agree and start seeing this way.

It was a make or break call that ONLY Obama could order.
It very well could have sparked World War III.
They weren't even entirely sure if Osama was in there. They invaded a country that was a supposed ally and dropped soldiers near one of their military bases. They have since allied with China now because of this.
If Osama wasn't there, it would have been a slap in their face and sparked a huge outcry from Pakistan and the American people.
that's why Obama gets credit.

I'm not sayin' he didn't have a role in it, he did. Just as Bush did. But he himself didn't go in and capture Bin Laden, so ppl should stop saying that "Obama got us Bin Laden!" cuz he didn't, it was a mixture between Bush urging us to track him down, Obama signing off on the plan to go in after him, and the military that actually went in and got him. People conveniently overlook the fact that Bush had to urge us and our government to try and bring him to justice, and that the military had to go in and risk their lives to get him.
