#1 What a SHORT memory. Must be all the legalized pot the BO admin was pushing.

Maria Harf, 2015, "We cannot kill our way out of this war", "we must find ISIS terrorists jobs".

And what is Fox doing giving this BO admin paid loony liar a platform?

One of the facets of the value of free speech is to expose morons for who they are.

Keep flapping your mouth, Marie.

#4 The onlything that asshole did was make a meat grinder bigger while calling the shots from his upstairs room between NCAA games or Golf.

Troops waited for his okay or died waiting for his ok.

He is scum of the earth and none of you cared at the time or now and it infuriates me.

#5 Soetoro ran the Joint Prioritized Effects List or JPEL out of his office and used it for his political (not tactical or strategic) advantage. The Ben Laden raid, which took place in the run-up to his reelection is evidence of that. The U.S. military was hamstrung in Afghanistan. Other agencies and their uniformed surrogates had the lead, I assure you.

And it was worse than that. First it was 20, then 50 on the leftist groupthink NSC. If you think you had to wait to take a shot before?

Just wait on that admin making cellphone and e-mail calls to their DJINN buddies in Iran and the Moslem Brotherhood to see who was gang made or not.

The court octipi jarrett and their choking America with talking points, armies of strawmen, and the neo=communist agenda - no one saw all this happening.
But some on the Burg did.

#7 I still think the only reason the Bin Laden raid was approved was that Obama could not get ValJar decision in time and, whoopsie, made a decision on his own.

You'd notice she kept him on a much tighter leash after that. I imagine for a few weeks he had to get her permission to pee.

#8 NO ONE was supposed to do a Bin Ladin raid. We were supposed to whom he talked to here, his messengers, their computer usage, his contacts with the ISI, his contacts in Iraq, his contacts in Iran, and sahel. But you do not give up any game until you have commo from his contacts here in the US first.

There is far more about this I like to say, but this was a failure - not in capture, but in pulling up the weeds before the crop has grown and a complicit nation to boot.

Nothing obama ever did solidified anything, ever.
He is the sand they built their house upon and everyone knows it is a fake and running out of fake global climate change air.

#9 Had Grant been posted to the West and never seen any significant action in the Civil War, he might have retired to Galena a broken old drunk never to be heard from again.

Soetoro did everything but wear a three inch "I killed Ben Laden" lapel button. It was planned alright. Well planned indeed, right off of Disney Street.

Harf!

#11 Marie Harf said the "strategy" that led ISIS’s defeat was "laid out during the B.O. regime by military commanders."

Then why didn't they do it?

#12 Obama never did anything right. He always did everything wrong. That's how we got ISIS in the first place. Their weapons were leftovers from our involvement in Iraq or else transfers from Benghazi via Turkey. Obama had to know and most likely ordered it.

As for bin Laden, it's extremely difficult to believe that he didn't somehow screw that up as well. No pictures were ever released? Business as usual continues with the Paks? What else?

#13 You mean the ISJV who was created with Obama's Arab Spring initiative, whom Obama gave the Bay of Pigs treatment.

*staring at you McCain*

Party of Harf.

Depends on the goals.

#15 There is that way of looking at it, grom, in which case he did a lot of things right. Then it becomes a testament to our form of government with its checks and balances and the American people who were smart enough to choose Trump as his successor instead of Hillary Clinton that our country has not yet totally succumbed to the global socialist police state. Whether or not we can continue to avoid this fate remains a question.

#17 "We cannot kill our way out of..." Ask the 1945 Japanese about that.

#18 The punishment for wearing prop glasses should be corneal adjustment until glasses like Trailer Park Boys Bubbles' are required to see at all.

#19 This is actually pretty damning of the Obama Administration. She's saying in effect we could have defeated ISIS in under a year but choose to let them continue with their crimes instead.

#20 She is a nit wit, through and through, but I will begrudgingly give her one soft compliment: Since she has joined FOX (which she ain't) her public speaking has improved...fewer "upspeaks" and a bit more "beginning, middle, end" statements than when she was a State spokes gurl.
