Diogenes: Republican President Captures AQ Honcho: Decisive!

Democratic President Captures AQ Honcho: meh


It's cute that you think that Obama captured him.

Yeah, well f*ck that guy.

It's therefore particularly cute that Cheney seems to think Obama isn't keeping America safe.

GaryPDX: Yea, we'll come back to this when a dirty bomb gets set off in some major city.

Why do you lefties think there is no risk?


The persistence shown when trying to out-stupid yourself with each successive post is quite amazing.

President Obama! He captures evildoers!

(Did he murder those Afghan civilians the other day?)

Thank you, Code Pink.

I look forward to Dick Cheney going on TV and telling us (1) Obama is a failure and is making the world more dangerous and (2) we should torture this guy.

He should try and get the guy tortured on TV! Americans would love that

Terrorists killed: Well YEAH. Now we can't "interrogate" them. Great job Obama!

Terrorists captured: Oh sure. Make them martyrs. Great job Obama!

I think it runs off the Limbaugh 2.0 scripting language.

Limbaugh 1.0 (pre-2009 version) had it all backwards. Saying those things made you anti-American. BIG BUG.

The Pakistani ISI taking out the head of the Quetta Shura is a huge deal. It's like the Gambino Family turning on the Lucheses instead of renting them the rooms to hide out while the cops are lurking.

I'm predicting more of a "First Obama says no torture, then when we actually get a person of interest, we're forced to let the Pakistani's interrogate him. All because Obama is too much of an elitist hypocrite to admit than the enhanced interrogation techniques are necessary."

Yeah, I know, way too complex to make it onto a Teabagger sign, but I'm sure some conserva-douche will be making this argument any minute now.

Why would you poison this thread with your relevance when there's good partisan sniping to be done!

Baloney. You don't know how to hold your tongue.

But honestly, your comment was silly. You're trying to connect things that are way out of scale and context with each other.

Nice.

Obama is such a fool and going about this the wrong way. We should set him free. If he comes back, he is ours. If he doesn't, it was never meant to be.

Sgt Otter, I actually think I know who are, local boy. And I have a lot of respect for you. Does "67N" Huey Crew sound anywhere familiar to you?


Dear god, you're going to try to hug him, aren't you?

To be fair, Sgt Otter is pretty awesome.

FTFA: Mullah Baradar has been in Pakistani custody for several days, with American and Pakistani intelligence officials both taking part in interrogations, according to the officials.

Yeah, but this is a drunk-hug. "Hug me, you bastard! Ah luuuuv yoo!"

I'm glad they caught this prick, but I'm also a little amused. It seems we capture a new "#2" every month.

These guys have all the shelf life of Darth Vader's #2 and seem to be replaced just as easily. Not an enviable position.
 
2010-02-16 02:02:50 AM  
Hell yeah! They finally got him!

LOL, Obviously a mistake by the Obama administration, everyone knows the war is in Iraq, not Pakistan.

"Tard-screed" is now officially my favorite term.
 
2010-02-16 02:05:07 AM  
This is a transparent ploy by the BHO administration to trump trivial issues to divert the attention of the American public away from the important issues.

Slightly (only slightly) more seriously, the guy was asking for trouble for being in Karachi anyway. There is a sort of tacit agreement that if they stay in NWFP (Peshawar) or Balochistan (Quetta), the internal security forces won't really try to come looking for you.

Because terrorism has killed approx. 4,800 Americans over the course of the last two decades and car crashes have killed two hundred times that? I'll be worrying more about my Toyota than Osama, thanks.

// hey podunk towns, you're not terrorist targets
// maybe if you lived in DC or NYC you might have a little something to worry about
// but probably not
 
2010-02-16 02:05:35 AM  
Hurray! Now no one will ever do bad things again! Terrorism is finally defeated!
 
2010-02-16 02:05:53 AM  
this IS a pretty big deal - you should be congratulating your boys; not being skeptical, you polarised moron. you know how you are.

Actually, we catch #3 a LOT. But number #2, that's a little more significant.

You may be right (I may also be getting the Taliban vs. al Qaeda #2's confused). Regardless, their rank and file system seems quite bizarre.

To put this in WW2 terms: We catch Stilwell alot. We went and captured Marshall this time.

He's a refreshing change from our usual gang of marine core soldiers, naval aviators, and special forces commandoes. I disagree with him sometimes, but I respect his opinion.

Pakistan.... where we should have been EIGHT FARKING YEARS AGO.
 
2010-02-16 02:10:58 AM  
okay srsly wtf is going on in Marjah. Some were saying days ago that it was over; some are saying there aren't enough attack helicopters to deal with all the firefights! Some are saying the Taliban has been driven out; some are saying they're getting close enough to shoot mine-removal vehicles!

They capture top ranking terrorist.
You make stupid comment.
The terrorist are incapacitated by your massive stupidity.
Clear as crystal.
Surprised you even had to ask.

goddamn man. how paranoid are you that you need to add a partisan element to even something thats a collective good?

you like to think of yourself as a patriot but spin it however much you like, scream with your comebacks but the fact is you & your kind are the cancerous rot that will kill your own country.

FTA:

Most immediately, they hope he will provide the whereabouts of Mullah Omar, the one-eyed cleric who is the group's spiritual leader.

Just me or does that sound like a 20-man instance boss?
 
2010-02-16 02:13:40 AM  
Awesome!

July 2009: "People think that the U.S. has troops in Pakistan, well, we don't."

February 2010: Taliban top military commander captured in Karachi by US and Pakistan forces.
