    I like it. That egomaniac obama is creating so much chaos and dischord because he is weak and impotent, a laughable spectacle of a man. Admiral McRaven tells him, "Shut up and sit in the corner. Leave this work to professionals. Shouldn't you be rabble rousing in the broken city of Chicago or campaigning somewhere?"

      Certainly a lot of BS in a short comment. Admiral Bill McRaven was selected by Obama for his Command position. McRaven worked with the CIA and developed the three options for taking out bin Laden. One being a raid as did occur, One being a raid with Pakistani forces and the last option was saturated bombing. At no time was Obama involved in the
      planning. The General carried out his raid after getting the go ahead from the
      President. Having complete confidence in his field commander, is the makings of a leader. Remember when Jimmy Carter lost
      his job because of equipment failure. At no time did the Admiral speak the words you quoted ....He may have thought them...But I don't see why...He knows Washington politics!

    It's not fair that gas stations are allowed to raise the price of gasoline when there is a crude oil shortage scare, but other distributors of oil based products aren't allowed.
    Take pharmaceuticals, for example. They are based on crude oil just like gasoline, but if your Dr. raised his drug prices during an oil shortage scare, you would call your doctor a liar just like you do @ oil corporations!

    CAROL ROBERTS and the white feminists in AMERICA have been trick by BILL CLINTON(antichrist) and by his fallen black antebellum and hip hop nation angels in beliving that it will be easy to get rid of andre himes ,not knowning about the power of the holy lamb of GOD who has been guarding andre's since the day he was born at SHAW AIR FORCE BASE on APRIL 30 1965 and since BILL CLINTON (the beast of the book of revelation) and those demons who rule AMERICA from those BLACK AMERICAN churches all knew ANDRE have been chosen by the LORD JESUS CHRIST and knew his future the day he was born ,none of them will be surprise by his miraculous survival in the future. Under racial profiling many BLACK AMERICANS were arrested and were either martyred within the prison system or were deported to AFRICA ,where many of them were martyred there and where many of them were buried in mass graves in both the SUDAN and in the CONGO and it was this act as well as the rise of the hip hop nation which had been summon against black america by the white feminists and by those whites who have a long history of embracing white surpremacy is what has contribute to the black holocaust in which the black human population were exterminated during the years between 1968-2001. Mean while a new demonic black america has arisen from both the black antebellum and the hip hop nation and is base on stereotypical images of low class ,poverty stricken and criminally prone blacks and has replaced the black human population who were exterminated during the black holocaust.

    I don't think big business wants peace. Wars and strife make them money. They can sell arms to this or that country, then raise the price of gas and food since people are worried. Obama should declare peace with the world.

    Rule of MIC and politicos gone bonkers and a nation driven to phobia and paranoia. "Wars and strife make them money" is right as also a people divided , hate and fear make it easy for them to be ruled. What has been happening to us in the past 11 years.
    In 2012 we tripled our arms sales around the world to a whopping $ 66 billion. Why should we want peace with the world?

  9. And...

    ...at no time was arresting OBL, his wives, and his other accomplices even considered as an option.
    If your husband killed 3,000 members of my extended family, my family would want to talk to you about it.
