Well, it does seem the Obama administration has unilaterally surrendered to al Qaeda on the war on terror:
A secret Central Intelligence Agency initiative terminated by Director Leon Panetta was an attempt to carry out a 2001 presidential authorization to capture or kill al Qaeda operatives, according to former intelligence officials familiar with the matter.
Neither Mr. Panetta nor the lawmakers provided details. Mr. Panetta quashed the CIA effort after learning about it June 23.
This echoes the Clinton administration’s bungling the capture or killing of Bin Laden prior to 9-11. If we are attacked, (or when as many predict), it will be another black mark on the Dems if one the CIA’s targets ends up successfully killing Americans. This is a dumb and dangerous game the DC Political Industrial Complex is playing.
