Five Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight President Obama Afghanistan -- lot that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo at 4 AM Afghan time.
The president told the world that the United States and Afghanistan remain strong allies in the fight against the Taliban and terror in general.
Today marks one year anniversary of bin Laden's death at the hands of US Navy SEALs and the president did a good thing.
By going into the war zone showing the world that US power is firmly intact.
Also his appearance there brings attention to the death of them -- and sends a message that America will not tolerate terrorist attacks.
But perhaps most importantly the commander in chief rally the troops.
Time and again may have answered the call to serve in distant and dangerous places.
In an age when so many institutions have come up short.
These Americans stood tall.
And they have US and NATO forces have done an outstanding job and god forsaken place.
But back home the president has ginned up a controversy over the death of bin Laden and here.
Obama has made a major mistake.
It all began with a political act which path would Mitt Romney if taken.
Mitt Romney criticized Barack Obama for vowing to strike al-Qaeda targets inside Pakistan if necessary.
I just recommend that are right take a look at people's previous statements in terms of whether they thought it was appropriate to go in Pakistan.
Take out bin Laden.
That Mitt Romney might not have had the guts.
To kill -- line.
Pretty strong stuff that may be unfair.
Here's the governor said on August 5 2007 when he answered a debate question about going into a foreign country to kill terrorists.
America always maintains our options do whatever we think -- in the best interest of America but we don't get out go out and say.
It ladies and gentlemen to Germany if ever there was a problem in your country we didn't think you -- in the right thing we reserve the right to commit to get them out.
We we don't say those things we keep our options quiet.
Now I think fair minded Americans know -- misstatement so long way a long way from saying he would not go into another country to get the Mott.
So the question then becomes.
A bin Laden for political purposes.
Only you can make that call but I can set I think what the president has done as a huge campaign mistake.
Last night on the -- Senator John McCain was furious over the way mr.
Obama attacked mr.
Supporters of the president will see it differently of course but independence.
What the president has done falls into the cheap shot category.
