What was he doing? You can bet whatever it was it wasn’t in our favor.

Good riddance.

The organization of the QUADS force is probable more organized than if one person in command is killed then it can keep going. They are wide spread and cause a lot of havoc over there there will be countries that we may have to go through to get them. We now are knee deep in a religious war and as usual the one side are cowards and the other side will fight and die for their belief. (Sunnis and Shiites). Look for Israel to become the target and the war will last more than 60 days. Where will Turkey land on this their side or ours. Still a lot of answers as where will this go and how will the USA be viewed by the rest of the World.

Genius quote of the day - "All Americans are urged to leave Iraq immediately"
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

I read the US embassy was not urging but requiring them to leave...

Naw they would rather he just get more Americans then invite them to the White House to pick up a few billion. That was the last plan pay them to keep up terrorist activity.

The dude was a bad guy! Intelligence says they were planning an attack on Americans. I don't disagree with taking him out. I do question the strategy and seriously question the action being taken without notifying Congress. I will wait to form a final opinion.

Half of congress is in bed with the terrorist, I wouldn’t have told them either. If they are not directly in bed with them they hate America and Americans as much IMO.

While I wouldn’t go quite that far it does stand to reason that our chances for success went up exponentially by keeping the mission under wraps. Something about loose lips sinking ships comes to mind.

Why so?
Drones have taken out dozens if not hundreds (maybe thousands?) of individual terrorists in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan for years now without any prez notifying congress ahead of time.
