Are you talking about the nation which has allowed the Taliban to operate largely unhindered in Waziristan since the Russian-Afghan War? The one whose intelligence service is strongly suspected of being friendly with Lashkar-e-Taiba, the group which carried out the Mumbai attacks among many others? The country where Bin Laden lived for years in a villa located just around the corner of the country's prestigious military college in a neighborhood filled with retired military officers without raising any suspicion over the complete lack of landline communications? THAT country's sovereignty?

Please, tell us how you would use the Judge Advocate General's Office and the shore patrol (or something) to win the war on terrorism. Please. We could save so much time, money, and lives! Plus we wouldn't have to be so, um, sneaky.

Yep, killing Bin Laden was nearly as bad as 9/11. Yup. We should be out to win friends, influence people, and bring those bombers over to our side. We've been doing it wrong. Make love, not war.

Clearly, the Obama Administration has nothing to gain from actually hurting America's national security, or themselves basically.
I'm sure it was "necessary" to give Hollywood producers and celebrities a briefing about how the secret operation was conducted. Yep. Really necessary. We won't ever have to perform another operation like that again, but a Hollywood movie...that's like forever man!

I thought the message was pretty clear: fuck with our professional careers and our lives, and we'll fuck with your chances at reelection by telling the nation how you're fucking us up. As free Americans, we get to do that even to the President if that's how we feel. Since when do only housewives and plumbers get to have an opinion? Just sayin'...
