Barack Obama - #2868 - Obama and Staff Claim for Credit for Everything Redstate (2) Osama is Dead; Obama's Foreign Policy is Still Dangerous and Perverse - Redstate (3) The Kids are All Right - Bearing Drift

Good job, Obama. You got bin Laden. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming. The most unseemly thing about the entire killing of bin Laden is the pathetic scrabbling about for credit that we’re seeing on behalf of both Obama and his staff. From Obama’s statement last night: I directed Leon Panetta… I was briefed… I met repeatedly… I determined… at my direction… I, as Commander-in-Chief, As the Washington Post film critic, Stephen Hunter, writes: Any joy one might feel in the intelligence of our analysts and the bravery of our door kickers was significantly diminished by Obama’s malignant narcissism.

Osama is Dead; Obama's Foreign Policy is Still Dangerous and Perverse - Redstate - The big news of the day is that Osama is dead as a result of the brave work of our Special Forces and intelligence teams, as well as the Bush administration policies of terrorists interrogations and targeted assassinations. Yes, the very policies that Obama so vociferously opposed for political benefit. President Obama is to be congratulated for disavowing his campaign pledge and continuing those George Bush policies that he had previously repudiated. The other big news of the day is that the Palestinian terrorists were the first to condemn the assassination, even before Al-Qaeda itself. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh denounced the murder of the “Arab holy warrior.” As the left goes agog with excitement over Obama’s victory in the war on terror, they might want to ponder about his broader foreign policy, which is not only insouciant to Islamic terror, but actively supportive of it.  Read more.......

The Kids are All Right - Bearing Drift - Much has been made of the Millennial Generation’s more cosmopolitan flair and blasé attitude toward patriotism. I wouldn’t recommend repeating that criticism on the campuses of Virginia’s public colleges and universities today.  Last night, as the news was released that the most wanted man in the world had, indeed, been killed in Pakistan, hundreds of Radford University students spilled onto Main Street in Radford to celebrate, waving American flags and chanting “USA!”. Roanoke CBS-affiliate WDBJ-7 has video of the raucous, impromptu celebration here.  Just north of Radford, Virginia Tech students set off fireworks and cheered the demise of Osama bin Laden, while a truck whose passengers hoisted American flags from the open windows circled campus.  Read more.........
