    It's taken awhile to rebuild our HumInt capabilities after they were gutted by the Slick Willie Administration. Satellites simply cannot replace a man on the ground in the right place!

    And the Pakis have thrown the CIA out of 3 locations.

    The Paki situation is unraveling at the seams. Less US influence + more radical islamic influence + nuclear weapons = nothing good.

    If Obama has any sort of brains, he will smooth over that situation ASAP. It is one situation with the formula to create great pain and suffering. In general, I am an isolationist, but the AQ threat was something they pulled us into and this is one front that is of the utmost strategic importance.

    I hate to say that, but it is our reality.

    No comment on the OP. I am very familiar with the pain of building ground-up intelligence from nil. Its a lengthy process to say the least. My hat is off to the guys that pulled this one off. It is rare that we are able to tout the successes of our intelligence professionals because usually only the failures have a way of leaking. Way to go guys!

    It is probably rare to leak successes simply because it is not wise. :D

    Unless it is a game where after finding the safe house went public in Pakistan; we read it in our news. If not, there has been way too much publicity.

    As setting everything up for something so complex would have taken a long time; I wonder when the op began.

    I agree completely with your assessment above. The only problem is, Lord Obummer does not have the best interests of the USA in his heart. It is instead in the best interest of his handlers for him to do as much damage to the Country to the point of bringing it to it's knees in submission.
    We need to realize neither of the two Primary Political Parties have our best interests at heart. Show support for a third party candidate for the top Federal job in the Nation as well as local and state positions.
