    7 years ago today, Bin Laden was killed. Obama was the President of note so he gets "credit" for catching Bin Laden. We all know it was Seal Team 6 that got Bin Laden but Obama gave the order to execute the directive. Just like now, Trump gets credit for disarming N Korea. Trump sent out the tweets that disarmed N Korea but it was the N and S working together to come to a peaceful agreement...or will there be peace?

    Another ploy of delay by NK. I wish there would be a unified Korea under sane leadership. However, I fear this is another round of gamesmanship.

      One of those moments that you remember where you were when you heard the news.

        It took a while. The book says like six months to get El Presidente to give the go, but, especially considering all his Snowflake advisors were evidently telling him too risky and too speculative, it was easily the high mark of his presidency. He does get all the credit for eventually making the right decision, even though some of his comments about "I killed Bin Ladin" were very Trumptastic.

        Lil Bush was more concerned about keeping his friends the Pakis happy than allowing us to follow up on leads that Bin Ladin had been in Pakistan all the time. I wonder if it would have happened had he still been in office.

        As for Trump, of course he gets all the credit. Kim has played the last administrations like chumps because he didn't fear them in the slightest.

        They're out of money, out of food, and out of options.

        This is the death of a dictatorship.
