In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

Detective work - bin Laden

This is what should have happened directly after and as to 9/11! Terrorism is a criminal offense, international criminal terrorism is an international crime. We had the backing of most of the World then, meaning working with them and their resources added to ours. There should never have been Iraq and all that went with that as well as the added recruiting tools in Afghanistan. Once the Taliban were driven from there we should have worked to reign in the ghost al Qaeda while helping to rebuild Afghanistan after decades of war destruction, as we promised. But we walked away once again, like we did after the Afghan/Soviet debacle, rest is the present history as we created the next generations of bin Ladens!!

Detective work led to breakthrough on bin Laden

May 3, 2011 - For years, the agonizing search for al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden kept coming up empty. Then last July, Pakistanis working for the CIA drove up behind a white Suzuki navigating the bustling streets near Peshawar, Pakistan, and wrote down the car's license plate.

The man in the car was bin Laden's most trusted courier, and over the next month CIA operatives would track him throughout central Pakistan. Ultimately, administration officials said, he led them to a sprawling compound about 35 miles from the Pakistani capital.

On a moonless night eight months later, 79 U.S. commandos in four helicopters descended on the compound, the officials said. Shots rang out. A helicopter stalled and wouldn't take off. Pakistani authorities, kept in the dark by their U.S. allies, scrambled jets as the American commandos rushed to finish their mission and leave. The body of Osama bin Laden, America's enemy No. 1, was placed in a helicopter and flown away.

The raid was the culmination of years of painstaking intelligence work, including the interrogation of CIA detainees in secret prisons. Intelligence agencies eavesdropped on telephone calls and emails of the courier's Arab family and pored over satellite images of the compound in Abbottabad to determine whether a raid would be worth the risk.

Administration officials split over whether to launch the operation, whether to wait and continue monitoring until they were more sure that bin Laden was there, or whether to go for a less risky airstrike. In the end, President Barack Obama opted against a bombing that could do so much damage it might be uncertain whether bin Laden was really hit. Instead, he chose to send in commandos. {continued}

Simply put, Clinton did use intelligence agencies pre 9/11 when we didn't have the use of others as united in a search for but may have been sharing some possible intelligence finds.

The bush didn't when we had the World's total backing after 9/11, they sought to destroy an innocent country and people as they talked about doing prior to on the day of and the years after.

Obama did use intelligence agencies, for an almost clean takedown, one helo lost, whether others were involved we'll probably never know but be assured others who have had criminal terror attacks on their countries people were as active as we were under this administration so you can bet there was much more sharing from those rebuffed by the previous admin!

By the way, as to Pakistan, i believe some in that country knew where he was and probably were helping him. But remember the criminal terror elements within our own borders, one mentioned last night on Rachel's show, the uni-bomber, and how long it took to finally capture him.
