"The debate about whether we would have gotten the same information through other approaches, I think, is always going to be an open question" - Leon Panetta, director of the CIA.
5. That it is permitted to
make a decision to conduct a serious military operation on a gut feeling, even
if there was no 100% guarantee that the target, Osama bin Laden, resided in the
compound. Concern for ‘collateral’ damage was also brushed aside. (
“Well, the problem was we were never really certain about whether or not bin Laden was there… we just did not know whether in fact he was there.” - Leon Panetta, director of the CIA.
That it is acceptable to lie or manipulate information presented
to the international community about details of the operation without any shame
or fear of international rebuke. (This is definitely a big “No” for
a) Osama bin Ladin offered armed resistance
b) CIA was certain that he was residing in a compound
c) A woman was used as a human shield.
“A woman killed during the raid of Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan was not his wife and was not used as a human shield by the al Qaeda leader before his death” – Reuters
d) President Obama watched live feed of the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound.
"Once those teams went into the compound I can tell you that there was a time period of almost 20 or 25 minutes where we really didn't know just exactly what was going on.” - Leon Panetta, director of the CIA.
That it is OK to give 3 billion dollars a year of foreign ‘aid’ to
the enemy, Pakistan, pretending it is a friend, without any scrutiny and having
no disproportional ‘public’ outrage. (In contrast,
Jews still need to unite in order to free all our land from enemy occupation, but this tiny country - surrounded by enemies, threatened constantly by terrorism and war, subject to an Arab economic boycott, frequently maligned by the media, torn within by ethnic and religious strife - is tied for 8th place among the world's happiest countries.

Arab-Israeli MKs Ahmed Tibi, Muhammad Barakei and Taleb a-Sanaa traveled to Cairo to witness the signing ceremony of a Fatah-Hamas reconciliation agreement. The meeting marked the first time since 2006 that Abbas met with Khaled Mashaal, the Damascus-based leader of Hamas. Mashaal said: “We have decided to pay any price so that reconciliation is achieved. “Our real fight is with the Israeli occupier, not Palestinian factions and sons of the one nation (?). “Our aim is to establish a free and completely sovereign Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, whose capital is Jerusalem, without any settlers and without giving up a single inch of land and without giving up on (‘refugees’) right of return”. (This is a moderate statement by Hamas standards. The true agenda is to remove Israel off the map!)

Islamic Terror is anti-Western
What's at stake is nothing less than the survival of Western civilization. Binyamin Netanyahu outlines the critical steps needed to eradicate the threat of terrorism:
…the main motivation driving the terror network is an anti-Western hostility that seeks to achieve nothing less than a reversal of history. It seeks to roll back the West and install an extremist form of Islam as the dominant power in the world. And it seeks to do this not by means of its own advancement and progress, but by destroying the enemy. This hatred is the product of a seething resentment that has simmered for centuries in certain parts of the Arab and Islamic world.

West for pushing back the triumphant march of Islam into the heart of

Unfortunately, Netanyahu’s lucid understanding of the Arab-Israel conflict is expressed mainly prior or in-between holding the job of the Prime Minister Israel. He is feeble on action!
