Alan E. Harazin: Backs Obama for his actions as commander-in-chief
To the editor:
Congratulations to Barack Obama on fulfilling his responsibilities as commander in chief in the continuing fight vs. al-Qaida. He has aggressively decimated al-Qaida leadership by multiplying drone missile attacks and eliminated Osama bin Laden. Despite the “Hamlet-like” speech recently in a desperate attempt to avoid comparisons to the “cowboy” style of his predecessor and agonizing over the difficulty of wartime decisions, it’s clear Obama will continue to operate GITMO (“What else can I do when Congress ties my hands?”) and continue to selectively target enemy leaders with drone attacks. All the rest of the rhetoric is political windowdressing.
