Obama Backtracks On Osama

Remember Barack Obama's famous attack on John McCain, that McCain wasn't willing to go to the cave where Osama bin Laden was hiding: "John McCain likes to say that he'll follow bin Laden to the Gates of Hell - but he won't even go to the cave where he lives." Or during the October 7, 2008 debate: "We will kill bin Laden. We will crush al-Qaeda. That has to be our biggest national security priority."

No more. Now, all we have to do is contain bin Laden to his cave, you know, the one McCain wouldn't go to:

Barack Obama last night suggested that removing Osama bin Laden from the battlefield was no longer essential and that America's security goals could be achieved by merely keeping al-Qaeda "on the run".

"My preference obviously would be to capture or kill him," he said. "But if we have so tightened the noose that he's in a cave somewhere and can't even communicate with his operatives then we will meet our goal of protecting America."

It's beginning to look like we picked Door No. 2, and got the booby prize.
UPDATE: OMG, Obama made this revelation in an interview with Katie Couric! Katie goes where the rest of the mainstream media dares not tread.


  1. Seems that goal has been met for about seven or eight years now.

  2. Hmmm.. how DARE you bring this up ? How dare you even have Obama/Osama in the same sentence ? Raaacist !

    In the future, if you have to use Obama and Osama in the same sentence make sure that there are atleast a 100 words between them.

  3. ""Words, just words"
    LOL ! Who ever said that lawyers didnt have a sense of humor :-)

  4. George W. Obama strikes again.

  5. We've got him cornered? In a cave? How can that possibly be after eight years of failed Bush policy?

  6. Everyone knows that caves don't HAVE corners.

  7. It certainly is a flip. Even my 11-year old son figured it out with very little explanation. His reaction was negative.

    I guess Obama took flipping lessons from his senior U.S. Senator Dick Durbin.

  8. The MSM will never even mention this.... or will send it to the bottom to be ignored. Sooooo frustrating!

  9. good post, this won't be the last time B. Hussein alters what he originally said on the campaign trail..

  10. Hey people if you knew where Osama was wouldn't you tell the rest of your country? Well, McCain said he actually knew where Osama was, is he going to share this news with the country? I am a private citizen but if I knew I would feel as if I was committing treason to keep that information to myself for 4 years. So perhaps Barack Obama won't have to spend the lives of too many more of our men and women searching for him, just let McCain direct us to the spot.
