    Not telling Afghanistan to hand over all members of al Queada and then attacking them when they couldn’t. Committing a war crime in the process.

    We went in with the UN’s blessing and NATO forces from 43 Nations. How can that be a war crime?

    Bush till [sic] was at the golf course more than Obama.

    Bush played 24 Rounds of golf over 8 years. As of Feb 17, Obama has played 164 rounds.

    I suggest you re-read the Constitution and pay particular attention to the 10th Amendment:

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    Nope do not have the time.

    Here… I’ll pique your interest:

    In 1980, [Charlie] Wilson read an Associated Press dispatch on the congressional wires describing the refugees fleeing Soviet-occupied Afghanistan. The communist Democratic Republic of Afghanistan had taken over power during the Saur revolution and asked the Soviet Union to help suppress resistance from the mujahideen. According to biographer George Crile III, Wilson called the staff of the House Appropriations Committee dealing with “black appropriations” and requested a two-fold appropriation increase for Afghanistan. Because Wilson had just been named to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense (which is responsible for funding CIA operations), his request went through.21

    That was not the last time he increased the CIA budget for its Afghan operation. In 1983, he won an additional $40 million, $17 million of which was allocated for anti-aircraft weapons to shoot down Mil Mi-24 Hind helicopters.22 The next year, CIA officer Gust Avrakotos directly approached Wilson—breaking the CIA’s policy against lobbying Congress for money—asking Wilson for $50 million more. Wilson agreed and convinced Congress, saying, “The U.S. had nothing whatsoever to do with these people’s decision to fight … but we’ll be damned by history if we let them fight with stones.”23 Later, Wilson succeeded in giving the Afghans $300 million of unused Pentagon money before the end of the fiscal year.24 Thus, Wilson directly influenced the level of United States government support for the Afghan Mujahideen.


    However, Wilson’s role remains controversial because most of the aid was supplied to Islamist hardliner Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, now a senior Taliban leader and a supporter of al-Qaeda.28

    Quite right… the only Oligarchs that should be entitled to the First Amendment are those conglomerates known as the liberal media.
