Obama Policies Inspire "Blowback"

President Obama last week gave an interview in the Situation Room at the White House to discuss the decision he made one year ago to send Navy SEALs on the mission that resulted in killing of al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. And less that three years after Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, he is winning praise as the "Warrior in Chief" carrying on a "militarily aggressive" foreign policy.

Just a little over four years ago, Hillary Clinton, then running for President, ran a controversial ad strongly suggesting that Democratic rival Barack Obama was not ready to take that "3 a.m." phone call in the White House when "something is happening in the world." America needs a President who "knows the military" and is "tested and ready to lead," the ad warned. Now Clinton is Obama's Secretary of State and the President last week gave an interview in the Situation Room at the White House to discuss the decision he made one year ago to send Navy SEALs on the mission that resulted in killing of al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. And less that three years after Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, he is winning praise as the "Warrior in Chief" carrying on a "militarily aggressive" foreign policy.

As the Obama campaign prepares to formally begin the reelection drive on Saturday, May 5, with appearances in the key states of Ohio and Virginia, campaign spokesman are describing the President as defender of the middle class and the foe of tax cuts for the wealthiest "one percent" of Americans. But in the past several days, with the anniversary of the May 1 killing of bin Laden at hand, administration spokesmen and Obama campaign supporters have been talking up last year's raid on bin Laden's home in Abbottabad, Pakistan, as not only a major victory for the United States, but also as evidence that Obama is a tough and decisive leader. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said last week that the slaying of bin Laden, along with the killing of other al Qaeda leaders over the past few years, "has prevented them from having the command and control capability to be able to put together an attack similar to 9/11."
