"Osama Bin Laden's demise came after President Barack Obama restored counter-terrorism operations to America's top national security priority, reversing President George Bush's decision -- before and after the 9/11 attacks -- to de-prioritize the effort to destroy Al Qaeda. Bush may have coined the phrase 'global war on terror,' but that was simply political cover for a strategic decision to prioritize 'regime change,' overthrowing leaders of 'rogue states' with unilateral military actions, over the multilateral pursuit of stateless terror organizations. Bush's decision was a costly one: in lives, in money and in moral authority. Let's review the record." (05/02/11)
