When will the Dems stop talking about killing Osama?

Grr should be STOP talking about it
Right after Pres. Obama gets re-elected.
First of all, for the next eighteen months, Obama is going to respond to every single foreign-policy question by holding up Bin Laden’s head and swinging it in front of him like a lantern (metaphorically speaking, of course). It doesn’t matter what the question is: ask Obama about the Irish debt crisis, he’ll answer, “The Irish have been important allies in our fight against terrorism, which as you’ll recall resulted recently in the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden …”

I never said there arent terrorists. What i will say is that the neocons (bush administration) gave creedence to a once very dead ideal of extreme islamics who at that time, were killing innocent Muslims because they didnt think they were "mulsim enough". This idealogy died because noone would join a group who would kill other muslims for having any incline towards western society. In the end most of them killed themselves because the ideal that one isnt muslim enough, is a serious paranoid delusion. These cronies (bush regime) resurrected this sentiment and gave it new creedence and power. only this time against the US, rather than themselves.
The Power of Nightmares doc I keep trying to get people to watch explains all of this. So please, educate instead of regurgitate.

I saw this documentary as part of a "war, fear and terror in the 21st century" political science course I took in college and it provides a great deal of insight into the situation we have all been in for the last 10-15 years or so. It was put together for the BBC and it's really good.
