Fox News Forgets George W. Bush Passed On Killing Bin Laden Too

Fox News is outraged Bill Clinton passed on killing Bin Laden. No mention of George W. Bush's public admission he's not that concerned about finding Bin Laden.

George W. Bush, in a 2002 press briefing at the White House, said:

"the idea of focusing on one person is um really indicates people really don't understand the scope of the mission. Terror is bigger than one person and he's a person who's now been marginalized. His host government has been destroyed. He's the ultimate parasite who found weakness, exploited it, and... met his match...I don't spend that much time on it to be honest with you. I'm more worried our soldiers are well supplied.

Let's all remember as well the esteemed Senator from Arizona, Senator John McCain whom posed with members of ISIL in 2013. McCain sagaciously advised us to back these brave fighters of Syria.

“It was a very moving experience to meet these fighters who have been struggling now for over two years,” McCain said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360”.

“And they’re very aware of the battlefield situation” the Arizona senator continued, “and they’re very disturbed about the dramatic influx of Hezbollah fighters, more Iranians, and of course, stepped-up activities of Bashar Assad.”

Unbeknownst to Mr. McCain, Islam has quite a bellicose history, especially between Sunni's and Shi'a. These "moderate" guys are moderate if you consider beheadings "moderate."
There has to be some credit given to the Obama Administration on cautiously approaching the regions' players as it's obvious it isn't always as easy as the Republicans think. One day you're taking selfies with "rebels." The next you're bombing these same folks to prevent genocide.
